3. Knead the dough.

Generously dust the counter with flour (either whole wheat or brown rice flour). Dump out the dough, flour your hands well, and knead for a minute or two. The dough should be very pliable but not super sticky. Add flour as needed until the right consistency is achieved. Form into a ball.

4. Roll out the dough and cut into desired teething biscuit shape.

Lightly flour a rolling pin and roll out the dough until it is about 1/2 inch thick. Cut the dough with a knife into thick “fingers” or use a cup to create circles. You can use cookie cutters, but avoid any sharp cornered shapes. Place parchment paper or a silpat onto a baking sheet. Using a spatula, move the teething biscuits onto the covered baking sheet.

5. Bake the biscuits.

Before baking, if desired, use a toothpick or knife to add any additional details “write” an initial, make a heart, etc. Your little one probably doesn’t appreciate the details yet, but these teething biscuits make great gifts so feel free to embellish them for any special tot (or grateful parent) in your life. Place the sheet in the oven and cook for 35-45 minutes, depending on the size of the biscuits and the desired level of firmness.
