baby food: eggless teething biscuits

Cookie isn't teething yet but, she loves to stick things in her mouth.  Her favorite is paper.  To get her off her paper habit I thought a teething biscuit would be a good alternative.  She likes them but, doesn't quite get it yet.  I piped them into hearts for Valentine's Day and almost all of them are gone because apparently her big brother loves biscuits.  Go figure.

Eggless Teething Biscuits

1 cup flour
1 cup dry infant rice cereal with bananas
3 tablespoons cooking oil

ice water

Preheat oven 425F
Mix flour and cereal.
Gradually stir in oil. Mix a little ice water at a time (start with 1/4 cup) until dough begins to form a ball and pull away from the bowl.
Either put in pastry bag and pipe out shapes or roll out to the thickness of a cracker on a floured surface and cut into desired shapes.
Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet 10-12 min. or until lightly brown. Cool completely.

I totally need to make these! My daughter will eat paper, shoes, rollie pollies...anything, except food. Maybe I can bribe her with these!
