Cookies for the Pooch

Brock waiting for a cookieBrock really, really likes his cookies. As you can see, he is licking his lips in anticipation while waiting at the freezer door.

Yesterday I ran out of Brock's cookies and decided to try a couple of new flavours. Cranberry Carrot and Pumpkin Peanut butter sounded interesting and I just happened to have the ingredients necessary.

I make Brock's cookies quite large since he is a big dog and will swallow little ones without chewing at all. I also store the cookies in the freezer so that they are hard, crunchy and last a long time.

Cranberry Carrot Dog Cookies

Cranberry Carrot Dog Biscuits 5 Cups Flour (whole wheat, rye, buckwheat...try a variety)
1 Cup Rolled Oats
2 Eggs
1 Carrot, grated
1-10 oz can Cranberry Sauce
1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and blend until completely mixed. Knead dough, adding more flour if dough is too sticky. You can either roll out the dough and cut out shapes or make balls and flatten them. Bake the cookies on a lined or lightly greased cookie sheet at 250 degrees for about 1 hour or until hard and lightly browned. The length of time will depend on how large you make your biscuits.

Pumpkin Peanut butter Dog Cookies

Pumpkin Peanutbutter Dog Biscuits4 Cups Flour
1 Cup Rolled Oats
2 Eggs
1-10 oz can Pumpkin
1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
1/4 Cup Peanut Butter

Make in the same manner as the Cranberry Carrot Cookies.

Next time I think I might try something like Salmon and Seaweed or Bacon Cheeseburger Cookies. I know that no matter what sort I make, Brock will be quite happy to eat them!
