Homemade Dog Cookies

I make cookies for my dogs. They are super easy (Rex or Regina really won't care if they're not perfect), when compared with gourmet treats are quite inexpensive and are chalk-a-block full of luv! Here is the nice & basic recipe I often use (Thanks Natural Health Magazine).

2 cups whole wheat flour
2/3 cup corn meal
1/2 cup sesame seeds (flax would work too)
3 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup chicken broth (avoid sodium heavy powders)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced (some dogs should not have garlic so omit until you check with your vet)

1) Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a second bowl, beat 2 eggs, milk oil & garlic together. Mix wet into dry well. Let sit for 15 min.

2) Roll dough out (1/4" or 6mm thick) on a lightly floured surface. Cut with cookie cutters. Beat remaining egg and brush on tops of biscuits.

3) Place cookies on a lightly greased cookie sheet (Silpat or parchment paper ok here too) and bake at 350 F for 25-35 min. or until brown. Remove and allow to cool. Store in an airtight container.

Couple these with the reversible dog scarf or plastic bag (aka poo bag) holder tutorials (I will soon post) and you've got a great x-mas gift for the dog lovers in your life. It would also make a unique dog- owning host/hostess gift too!
