Finally Mum agreed to help me paw the photos and recipes for Saturdays Goodie Fest!
First we made Stinky Salmon Cookies, this is a recipe we snagged from Sherman a while back and they are now a firm favourite in this house.
So first you will need:
1 cup of rolled oats
1 cup of grated cheese
can of salmon with juice
2 shakes of garlic powder
(we doubled up on this recipe because my beans love these too and so we made sure there was plenty stinky goodness to go round)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Cover cookie sheet with foil and spray on a little non-stick spray.
ok.. now dump all the ingredients into a bowl like so..
then give it all a good smooshing around like so...
Once it is well and truly smooshed, dump it all onto your cookie sheet and press flat into a thin layer about 1/4 inch thick, add a little more grated cheese on top if you wish
Now throw it in that oven and wait for 25 horribly long minutes till it is ready.
Once the 25 minutes have crawled by.. remove from oven and cool (yet more horrible waiting) then cut into manly sized chunks like so..
and now for those most important bit.. this bit is crucial..
feed the dog the tasty goodness for approval!
Mmmmm Stinky Salmon Goodness!!
Next we made Milk Biscuits
now for these you will need:
3/4 cup hot water
1/3 cup margarine
1/2 cup powdered milk
1 tsp salt
1 egg (beaten)
3 cups of whole wheat flour
Preheat oven to 325 degrees
Grease a couple of cookie trays
In a large bowl...
pour hot water over margarine
stir in powdered milk, salt and egg
add flour 1/2 cup at a time to form a dough like this..
knead the dough for a few minutes till it is nice and soft then pat or roll out to about 1/2 inch thick.
Cut into shapes (we usually go for bones but went for something different this time) can you guess what shapes we had cut out?
Bake your cookies for 50 (VERY LONG) minutes then turn out and allow to cool and tell your furry friend several times that NO they are not ready yet!
They will dry out quite hard and this recipe makes about 1 and 1/4 lb of cookies!!
batch number 1..
Cookie Mailmen and Turtle!
Why a turtle I hear you cry!!
well actually it was LOTS of Turtles..
and they were in honour of Tadpole and Figs Mom's birthday.. seems she likes the Turtle Creatures!
and don't forget the all important furry friend taste test
Mmmm num num num!!
Oh and this is the Peanut Bread that I got to sample.. smothered in Peanut Butter!! I ate that too fast for photographic example though!!
If you want the recipe for the Peanut Bread or for the Peanut Butter Pops.. (which Mum forgot to photograph!! though they are on my blog elsewhere) then just holler!
