Guess who got caught with his hand in the cookie jar.......


He is SOOO busted!!!!!

So what is today's awesome cookie?????   It's for our canine friends!!!! Homemade Dog biscuits!!!!!!!

*hop* *skip* *hop*

So here is my special pup, Fenway

yeah, not too spoiled, eh?

and of course, my grandpuppies, Bruin...  ( he snuck in the cabinet when I was cooking  at my oldest's son's house)

and Kalli!!

Here is he recipe for "Over the Rainbow Treats'
by Mary MacPherson

1 cup canned mixed peas & carrots, drained
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup powdered skim milk
1 tsp garlic powder
6 TBSP vegetable oil
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup ice water

optional~ bone shaped- cookie cutter

In a blender or food processor, puree carrots & peas and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, powdered skim milk and garlic powder. Make a well in the center of the mixture and gradually stir in the pureed vegetables, oil, beaten egg and ice water until well- blended.

Divide into 2 balls and individually knead each one on a floured board for about 2 minutes.

With a rolling pin, roll dough to between a 1/4" to 1/2" thickness. Using bone shaped (or other) cookie cutter cut cookies & place on a foiled lined baking sheet. ( if you want to create a hole for hanging, use a straw... before baking)

Bake 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove form oven & carefully turn each biscuit over. Return to oven and bake for 25 minutes.

Cool on a rack and store at room temp in a container with a loose -fitting lid.

I hung a few on the tree

But poor Fenway went into a downstay that I'm sure would've lasted until Christmas..

I pulled them down & let her have one. As my # 1 taste-tester.. she approves.

So......  my giveaway??  If you leave a comment here or on facebook, I will have  Ryan randomly draw a name from the comments and I will send your pup a dozen home made biscuits in time for Christmas.

I will have him draw a name on hmmm.......... how about The 15th.... that will give me time to ship ... and maybe a little something for your pup's master :)
