breadsticks

by Rachel Paxton

 

Is your baby teething?  Homemade bread sticks are easy to make and are great teething biscuits for older babies.  You can make bread sticks out of most any kind of bread by baking at a low temperature (150-200 degrees) for 15 to 20 minutes, or until bread sticks are hard and crunchy. 

 

For the recipes below, after baking, let bread cool.  Slice bread into "sticks" and bake at 150-200 degrees for 1 hour.  Store in airtight container.  Your baby will love it!
