Dog Cookies recipe
Lucy, our 12-year-old Standard Schnauzer, insisted that I include this recipe in my recently published cookbook “Mountain Mornings”. She LOVES these treats and suggests you bake them often for YOUR dog.… former innkeeper Sally Krueger
- 2 cups quick-cooking oats
- 1/2 cup margarine, cut into pieces
- 4 beef or chicken bouillon cubes
- 2 cups boiling water
- 2 cups whole-wheat flour
- 1-1/2 cups yellow cornmeal
- 2 Tablespoons sugar
- 1 cup skim milk
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups grated cheese (optional)
- 2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. . Spray cookie sheets with nonstick cooking spray.
Measure oats into a medium bowl, top with pieces of margarine and the bouillon cubes. Pour in boiling water and let sit 10 minutes to dissolve the margarine and bouillon cubes. Mix well, then add whole-wheat flour, cornmeal, sugar, milk, eggs and optional cheese. Add enough of the all purpose flour to make a stiff dough. Mix well, using hands if necessary.
Roll out dough. The thinner the dough, the crisper the baked treats will be. Use bone- or cat-shaped cookie cutter to cut out cookies. Bake on prepared cookie sheets until hard, 5 to 15 minutes depending on how thin the dough is rolled. Remove from cookie sheets and cool completely.
PS: Lucy died recently at age 13 and a half. She lived a life full of hiking, camping, pampering and Dog Cookies!
Yield:Enough for all the dogs in your neighborhood!
