Organic Teething Biscuits

I made these teething biscuits for Sylvester after buying a few boxes from the store. He seems to enjoy these more and they're much cheaper! Also, they're higher in fiber, less sugar and other junk. 

The book says these last about 10 days in an airtight container. 
Yield: 12 medium biscuits
Ingredients: 
1 cup organic whole-wheat flour
1 cup organic dry baby rice cereal
3 tbsp. virgin coconut oil
Ice water

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees (F).
2. Mix the flour and rice cereal in a medium bowl.
3. Stir in the oil.
4. Add enough ice water to create a big, sticky ball of dough. 
5. Transfer the ball to a pastry bag or plastic bag with the bottom corner slipped off.
6. Pipe out onto a greased baking sheet any shape that takes your fancy. I like to pipe out ring shapes.
7. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Transfer to wire rack to cool.

My personal notes: I used oatmeal cereal and I added 1/2tsp vanilla extract for sweetness. 

Sylvester loves these biscuits. He puts the rings on his fingers and carries them around all day nibbling off little bits at a time. And the frosting on the cake, I had everything on hand to make 
them!
