Homemade Teething Biscuits!

Simple, yummy teething biscuits you can make at home!

I've got a chewer at my house.  He chews on anything and everything that comes within reach. So I whipped up some teething biscuits for him (to give my fingers/hair/chin a rest!)
Want to make some yourself? Here's what you need:
1 1/2 C all-purpose flour
3/4 C wheat flour
1/2 C maple syrup
4 T apple sauce (OR peanut butter. OR fruit puree. OR whatever you want!)

Mix all the ingredients together (it'll be crumbly), then knead the dough a few times until it all sticks together.  Then roll it out on a floured surface, and cut with a biscuit cutter, a donut cutter, or two different-sized heart cutters like I did :)

Bake at 200° F for 35 mins, or until slightly golden brown.
Let cool, then hand one over to your little chewer! (or dunk one in milk and eat it yourself! hehe!)
These are very dense -- they're meant to be! Perfect for teething.  Please supervise your little one while they're eating! :)

These will stay good in a air-tight container for about 2 weeks.  Or freeze them, and they'll stay good forever! Well, a long time, anyway ;)
