Eris bakes: What could be more chaotic than a teenager in the kitchen?

{December 24, 2012}   Dog cookies

Around Thanksgiving I found a recipe for dog treats and last Thursday I made them. I made sure to announce that they were dog treats… but umm my aunt had already gone to bed. The next morning, she comes up to me “So, the cookies on the table, are they decorative?” I must have had a “Oh, no, no, she didn’t” face. I was like “Nooooo, those are dog cookies.” “Oh! No wonder it tasted bad.” My mom, who was upstairs, called down “Did you eat a dog cookie?”  “Yes, I was like ‘Man, JulieAnn forgot the sugar, that’s so unlike her.” (Please note this has been slightly paraphrased) which made everyone laugh. It has been the running gag all weekend.

Recipe from Browneyedbaker. com

Peanut Butter Doggie Bones

2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 cup natural peanut butter
1 cup low-fat milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk. Add wet mixture to dry, and mix well.

Turn out dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll out to 1/4-inch thickness and cut out shapes. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake 20 minutes or until lightly brown. Cool on a rack and store in an airtight container.


The judge’s verdict:

“Can I PLEASE eat them ALL???”  (This is exactly what our dogs said too)

These cookies have lasted about 2 weeks.

This story still makes me laugh.
