Dog Treats

My Pokey Little puppy recently had surgery.  To our delight he has been cooped up in the house with orders to be still.  mmmm hmmmmm He's a dalmatian- hence jittery.  We decided to make him some tasty doggie treats for his convalescence.  I remembered I had a recipe for dog biscuits and it seems I made some just a couple of years ago.  Anyway I found the recipe.  It was from a 1995 issue of Good Housekeeping.  Yeah that was just a couple of years ago.

We made up a batch, they were really easy and, well almost tasty.  Yeah we sampled one.  So?  Here's the recipe in case you want to try.

1 1/2 c flour
1/4 c uncooked oatmeal
1/4 c honey crunch wheat germ
1/4 c peanut butter
1/4 canola oil
1/4 c honey
1 t baking powder

1.  In a large bowl, with mixer at low speed, mix 1 cup flour with remaining ingredients and 1/2 c wateruntil well blended.  With spoon, stir in remaining 1/2 c flour.

2.  Preheat oven to 350.  With floured hands on a floured surface knead dough until it holds together.  Roll to 1/4 inch thick.  Cut out with bone shaped cookie cutter.

3.  Bake on large ungreased cookie sheet for 20 minutes; turn oven off.  Let cookie sheet remain in oven 1 hour.

4.  Cool on a wire rack.  Store in an airtight container.

NOTE:  They were a little overdone so I would shut the oven off after 15 minutes.
