i had NO idea there were thousands of doggie treat recipes on the internet! last night i made 3 out of 4 kinds that i planned to make for my dog doris. the 4th is a potato cookie i will make when she finishes these. of course there are a lot of extra cookies to share with my friend’s other pups šŸ™‚

as a serious cook i often do not even want to eat my food after laboring in the kitchen for hours. this way i don’t have to!

lots of these recipes have beef & veggie jars of baby food in them. interesting.
beefy twists come from a new favorite dog collar site-she has 150 recipes on her blog. instead of twisting them, i used a bone shaped cookie cutter.

the other 2 come from bullwinkle.com

1 3/4 cups plain flour
2 tsp toasted wheat germ
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sesame seeds
rind of 1 lemon
12 tsp butter or margarine
1/2 cup ground walnuts
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Combine all the ingredients. Knead until thoroughly blended. Divide into 6 parts. Roll each into a log. Wrap loosely in waxpaper. Freeze. When needed, thaw and slice into 1/2 thick slices (across roll). Preheat oven to 375F. Place cookies on an ungreased cookie pan. Bake about 12 minutes. Makes 6-8 cookies per roll.

these are the heart shaped cookies. they are sweet & probably really tasty. i use butter flavored crisco instead of margerine or oil.

and the round beef & rice moochies!

1 jar babyfood, dinner, vegetables and beef, strained
2 1/2 cups flour, all-purpose
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup rice
1 package unflavored gelatin
1 whole egg
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup powdered milk
1 package yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1 beef bouillon cube

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Mix dry ingredients in large bowl. Add yeast, egg, oil, baby food and dissolved beef bouillon. Mix well. Mixture will be very dry, knead with hands until it forms a ball. Roll out on floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness, cut in 1 or 2 inch circles. Bake on un-greased cookie sheet 30 minutes at 300 degrees.

i had a BLAST making these for my beloved doris! you will to šŸ™‚
