No, not the little tiny progeny of normal size biscuits, or a recipe from Jonathan Swift's "A Modest Proposal", but actual buscuits for real babies.

I had a baby visiting my house this weekend, and if there's one subject I know next to nothing about, it's babies. The last direct contact I had with an actual baby was long ago when my Sister was one, and I was only six years old myself at that time.

I have noticed, however, that babies like to eat. I recalled that my King Arthur Flour Cookbook included a recipe for Teething Biscuits on the page following that of the Graham Crackers I made a couple weeks ago so I retired to the kitchen, leaving the on-hands baby care in more capable hands.

Teething Biscuits


1/2 Cup Milk
1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
1/4 Cup Molasses
1 1/2 Cups AP Flour
1 1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour

Blend the Wet Ingredients
Stir the Flours into the Wet Ingredients
Knead the mixture to make a smooth Dough
Let the Dough rest, covered, 20 minutes
Roll Dough out to 1/4" thickness
Cut in 1-2" shapes (I used a star shapped cutter)
Let them rest another 15-20 minutes while oven preheats to 350
Bake approx 30 minutes until quite hard

The 9 month old baby I had available for testing approved.

SB (and the dogs liked them too)

PS: I never knew that babies under one year old shouldn't eat honey?
