Zwieback Teething Biscuits
(Any mom will tell you, these things go like hotcakes, but cost a fortune to buy. Here is a recipe that you can make as a gift or for your own little ones.
1/2 c milk
1 pkg active dry yeast
1/4 c sugar
1/4 c butter — melted
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground anise or anise flavoring
3 c flour
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Scald the milk and when lukewarm add to the yeast. Add the sugar, butter, salt, anise and the eggs unbeaten, and enough flour to handle.
Let rise until light. Make into 3 inch oblong rolls, place close together in a buttered pan in rows, two inches apart.
Let rise again and bake 20 minutes.
When cold cut in 1/2 inch slices and brown evenly in the oven.
Dust lightly with Confectioners sugar, if desired.
