Wheat Teething Cookies

These teething cookies are great to give your little one to gum on while their new set of pearly whites come in! As when giving your child any kind of small food you should watch them carefully while they eat it. These cookies are best introduced between 8 to 10 months of age.

2/3 cup milk
4 TBSP unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 TBSP brown sugar
1 cup plain, untoasted wheat germ 
3/4 cup whole wheat flour

Beat together the milk, butter and sugar. Stir in the wheat germ and enough flour to make a dough. The dough should be sticky and harder to work with than normal cookie dough – this is normal and will result in harder cookies for baby to gum on.

Knead until smooth, about 8 to 10 minutes. Pinch off balls of dough and roll them into sticks. Bake on a greased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or until browned and hard.
