Homemade Baby Food...

I love to cook and since I am a stay at home mom I figure I have no excuses not to make my own baby food. I did make a little with Jillian but I worked way too much to keep it up. Yesterday, Jillian and I made some sweet peas and the following teething cookies/crackers. I was expecting these to taste like um... crap but I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome of this recipe. I was told by Jeff and Jillian that I can make these crackers anytime I want. They taste like gourmet vegetable crackers, the next batch I make I'm going to add sesame seeds, flax seeds, and some spices to them and of course make a plain batch for the kids. The original recipe came from Wholesome Baby Food, it is a great resource if you plan on making your own baby food.

Teething Biscuit Recipes - Eggless Baby Cereal Cookies

Ingredients:

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

Pureed Veggies or Fruit (I used peas = 1 jar equivalent)

ice water

Directions:
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.
Roll out to the thickness of a cracker on a floured surface and cut into desired shapes. (The dough is very sticky so use lots of flour!)
Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet 10-12 min. or until lightly brown. Cool completely.

Store in an airtight container. (you may want to try 1/2 plain and 1/2 flavored baby cereal as the taste when using full flavored baby cereal is very strong.)
