Ease teething tots with ANNABEL KARMEL’S BABY BISCOTTI.
Mum of three, Annabel Karmel MBE is a modern day ‘mumpreneur’. As the UK’s number one parenting author and expert on devising delicious and nutritious meals for babies, toddlers and children, Annabel knows how important it is to give teething tots something to chew and suck on during their teething troubles.
Annabel Karmel comments: “Teething is a difficult and painful process for most babies and, from my experience, can leave both baby and mum exhausted. It is important for parents to make teething as easy and painless as possible by helping them through the teething developmental phase. Sore gums and flushed cheeks are the primary symptoms of teething, and babies will often chew on anything they can get their hands on to relieve the discomfort, which is why I have created a delicious Nelsons Baby Teething Biscotti.”
Ingredients (Makes 20 Biscotti)
50g butter, softened
50g light brown sugar
150g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Pre-heat the oven to 160C Fan / 180 C
Cream the butter and sugar together, then add the egg, flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Mix until you have a dough. Knead on a floured work surface. Divide into two pieces and roll out to 2 x 18 x 4 cm long. Place on a baking sheet lined with non stick paper. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and slice each sausage into 2 cm thick slices. Place on a baking tray and put back into the oven for 20 minutes turning over half way through the cooking time.
If you are concerned about any symptoms that your baby may have in particular if they have a fever please consult your doctor.
