Pete's Cookies or Teething Biscuits
2 1/2 cups flour (I use part whole wheat)
1/2 cup instant non-fat dry milk powder
1/2 cup wheat germ
11/2 tsps baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup undiluted, frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
Combine flour, milk powder, wheat germ, baking powder, cinnamon and salt together.
In another bowl, combine sugar and oil. Beat in the egg and orange juice and gradually add flour mixture to make a stiff dough. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
Place greased cookie sheet on damp towel to keep from sliding. Place dough on cookie sheet and flatten, rolling out to within 1 inch of the edge. Cut into 2 by 3/4-inch bars; separating the cookies isn't necessary. Bake 15 minutes in preheated 375-degree oven until light brown.
Remove from oven; re-cut on the same lines. Return to oven. Turn off heat and let set until oven is cool.
Makes about 6 dozen cookies that can be frozen and thawed as needed.
I found this recipe here. There are a bunch more but I liked this one because I didn't have bananas on hand and I have lots of wheat germ and powdered milk. I make the whole recipe and then put them in the freezer for him to eat for a couple of months. Pete likes these just as cookies not just for teething, I don't feel as bad about giving him these and really they are pretty good.
