Chickey did once. It was an accident. And Christmas. You know. A time of year when everyone has random festive containers of food on the counter.
She grabbed a snack, took a bite, seemed unimpressed. My step-brother, Graham I think it was, said "you know that's a dog treat, right?"
Right. She didn't know. We laughed. She did not.
It's for this reason that when Win came over for ham sandwiches the other night I said:
"Hey girl. Don't eat the cookies in the zip lock bag. They're for the dog."
Didn't want a repeat of that fateful Christmas.
So here you go! A recipe for dog treats. Make them for you pup, label them clearly for the humans in your life, everyone wins.
Big Browne Dog Biscuits
adapted from White on Rice Couple
2 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
2 3/4 cups AP flour
2 tbl brown sugar
1 tsp kosher salt
1 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup water
Combine the dry ingredients. Add in the eggs, peanut butter and vegetable oil and mix with your hands until it's all combined.
Add in water, continue to mix until the dough is workable.
Cover it up with a paper towel and let it sit for about 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375.
Spray two baking sheets with cooking spray (or use your Silpat!). Take small chunks of dough, smush them into a cookie that's about 1/2 an inch thick and place them on the baking sheets.
Bake for about 40 minutes or until they are firm.
