How to do
Whisk the egg in a blender at high speed until it reaches the consistency of cream.
Add sugar; add the butter at room temperature and continue to whisk it for a few more minutes.
Gradually add cinnamon, flour, wheat gem and salt and stir with a wooden spoon with small movements.
The dough should have a consistency like play dough or maybe a little softer.
Place baking paper on the tray.
Grease the baking paper with a napkin.
Grease your hands.
Take the dough and place it on tray.
Roll out the dough with your fingers and make it flat.
If you want to obtain a crispy form, the dough should be very thin; but if you prefer softer biscuits, dough can be a little thicker.
Grease a sharp knife with the grease you used for the tray.
Cut the dough in strips a little thicker than your finger so that your baby can easily grab these.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and bake it for 25-30 minutes.
To avoid dough sticking to the knife, clean the knife with a grease-applied napkin.
Cooking time depends on the thickness of the biscuits. Thinner ones will cook in a much shorter time.
