~ Yummy ~

My Shadow is a dog of many talents. Not only does he model, as he showed you in our last post, he can also cook and yesterday, he supervised me in making this batch of delicious Canine Cookies which he will give to his doggy friends at Christmas.

The Finished Gift

Ben hopes Indy and Georgia like his Canine Cookies as much as he does.

Here is the recipe which Dr Harry shared on Better Homes and Gardens

Canine Cookies

2-3 cups parsley finely chopped

1/4 carrot finely chopped

1/4 cup grated .mozzarella cheese

2 T olive oil

2 and 3/4 cups wholemeal flour

2 T unprocessed bran flakes

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup water

Preheat oven 180C. Grease or line baking trays. Mix parsley, carrot, cheese and oil in a bowl. In another bowl, mix flour, bran and baking powder. Add parsley mix and stir well. Gradually add water and mix well add more if needed to make dough moist. Knead for 1 minute on a floured surface.

Roll out dough to 1cm thick. Using a small cookie cutter or glass cut out as many shapes as you can.

Bake for 20-30 mins. Remove from oven and leave on wire rack to cool. Biscuits will harden as they cool. Store in an airtight tin and dog proof container.

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.

  1. I'm sure they taste delicious - if I were a dog. :) Great label you've made for them, Chrissie. Dr Harry would be impressed.

  2. Hi Chrissie
    I bet Ben loves these cookies! We made homemade cookies for our Ben too and he gobbled them up :-)Labs have such good appetites :-)
    Thanks for your kind comment today - I really appreciate it.x

  3. It's good to see that Ben has got his gifts all ready to give, no last minute crowds for that boy.
