A couple of days ago, there was a theft, but today, I've retrieved the merchandise, which would be my blog! A number of you asked for my Christmas doggie cookie recipe, so I'm going to slip it in between our makings of this recipe and a show-and-tell of my day at the Cow Palace fun match yesterday. An odd coupling indeed! The recipe is called "Peanut Butter Dog Bones." The ingredients call for:
2 cups whole wheat flour (but you can use 1 cup flour and 1 cup of whole oats)
1 T. baking powder
1 cup natural peanut butter (I used crunchy)
1 cup skim milk (but I used beef broth - or you can use chicken broth)
You can also add 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese to the recipe, which I did.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease cookie sheets (I used parchment paper); stir flour and baking powder together. In medium bowl, mix penut butter and skim milk (or...?); slowly add flour mixture. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth. If sticky, add flour until stiff enough to work with.
Roll out to 1/4 inch and cut into shapes. For smaller breeds, make into mini-peanut butter cookie shapes or little dog bones.
Meanwhile, I'm waiting, in between helping. We put the cookie cut-outs onto the parchment and then stuck them in the oven for 25-30 minutes until lightly browned.
Mmmmmmnnnn. We took them out and boy did they smell good! But we had more dough to roll and shapes to cut out!
Can I have one pleasepleaseplease??? Well, after they cooled, I got to test one and it was yumzers! I still had some decorating to do! For this, you can use yoghurt chips (around here, must get online), or what we used - white chocolate chips and also carob chips. We used pastry bags to pipe out decorations on the cookies. (We melted the carob chips in double boiler - don't overheat these seemingly delicate chips. We then added some veggie oil to thin - just a tiny bit at a time - test! We melted the white choc. chips in the microwave, but watched with an eagle eye. Then we added some veggie oil to these as well, stirring drop by drop. Enjoy!)
