As soon as he was safely out of the driveway I brought up my Pinterest boards.
A whole day to experiment sans audience/assistance! Now all you science types muttering that experiments are collaborative, don't hate. In a lab no one is saying, "Why the heck are you bothering to make cookies into shapes FOR THE DOG??" accompanied by head-shaking and falling-down-on-the-floor laughter.
Yes, off to my Pinterest board called "For My Dog". Obvious names can be useful. I had no problem finding that website from months ago called The Top Ten Homemade Dog Treat Recipes. A doglover called Turtlewoman generously shared her recipes on Hub Pages: click here to see her page.
I selected the Kiss Me Cookies. (I'm hoping they work on dog breath as advertised.) I made a half batch for the simple reason that I only had one egg in the house. I thought I had nonfat dry milk; when I discovered I didn't, I substituted unsweetened almond milk for the water.
|Before mixing - I loved being able to run outside for fresh parsley!|
|I don't have dog cookie cutters so shamrocks will have to do. I don't think Toby will mind. Incidentally, this dough was some of the easiest to roll and cut that I've ever used. Mixing the dough with hands would be great fun for the grandkids!|
|Turns out I had an audience the entire time after all!|
Just kidding - this took a lot longer than 30 min. I have a whole stack of old National Geographic maps to play with.
|Cookies Done - Yum!|
