Italian Teething Cookies22 Reviews
“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.” - by MARBALET
Original recipe yields 2 dozen
- In a medium bowl, whip the eggs and sugar with an electric mixer at high speed. Mix for 6 to 10 minutes, until mixture is thick and pale. Combine the flour and baking powder together. Gradually add the flour to the egg mixture. If the dough is still sticky, you can add more flour.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into long log shapes, about 1 1/2 inches in diameter, and as long as your cookie sheet. Cover with a clean towel, and let them sit out overnight.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Remove the rolls of dough from the cookie sheets and place them on a lightly floured surface. Cut into 1 1/2 inch long pieces. And return them to the baking sheets.
- Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until they are a light brown. Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks. These cookies can be stored for a month in an airtight container.

See morehem 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 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 ..." See moresome. 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."
