"In Italian, these cookies are called "Ossi Dei Morti" or bones of the dead. They are hard cookies, but they are used for teething babies. Adults like to dip them in cappuccino." — MARBALET

This is just what I was looking for I did add 1/2 tsp double strength vanilla & 1 tsp cinnamon,which required me to add addl flour, also instead of rolling logs which was a little hard to do I made them about 1/2 inch think by 1 inch wide flat logs I used a fork to decorate. The dough was still sticky so I did roll the amount I was working with in flour. Also I found if I cut them before they dryed over night it was a much harder cookie. Thanks!
I didn't like them, baby didn't like them, they got moldy in 2 weeks. So they definitely don't last a month in an airtight container.
I made these last night,very easy recipe. The dough was sticky even after the extra cup of flour. I added a tsp of vanilla for flavor. After waiting over night I ended up blackening the bottoms of some. On the up side my 9 month old really likes them and so did the 2 year old I baby sit. So I'll make it again. I like the taste of the batter,so I was a little disappointed in the taste after cooking,but then again I was not cooking them for me,and thank God I am not teething,because those cookies live up to their name.
I thought that babies under a year shouldn't have egg whites? even baked...
These are great! However, instead of messing with the very sticky dough, I just used a ziplock/pastry bag to make the cookies individually, then let them harden over night.
Really tasty, and perfect for coffee!
My child loved these. I am only giving it a four because it includes eggs. I didn't realize until later that my five month shouldn't have egg whites. Luckily, he doesn't have a problem with them!
This is a super recipe for teething babies. I experimented using Splenda and it still turned out fine. I used cookie cutters for shapes before setting out overnight. Can also lay the soggy cookie to dry and it will be hard as new again!
Can you add bananas or other flavouring to these cookies? Maybe some applesauce, bananas or blueberries? Has anyone tried it? My daughter doesn't like things that are plain... but she LOVES bananas, so adding some might make her more inclined to eat these.
