going to the dogs

Every year at Christmas we bake up a batch of homemade dog cookies. The farmer's dogs send treats to their retired Greyhound track friends in Hot Springs and Lucky the crazy frisbee chasing dog out in Rockford.

Homemade dog cookies are easy so let's get started.


1/2 cup cornmeal
2/3 cup meat broth (beef or chicken)
6 TBSP. oil
2/3 cup whole wheat flour

Rolling pin & bone shaped cookie cutters

Mix dry ingredients together, add the wet ingredients. Use your hands to mix well. As a few drops of water if the mixture seems too dry. If the mixture seems to wet add 1 tsp of flour at a time. Be careful not to overmix or the dough will be tough. Roll out to 1/4 inch thick on floured surface. Cut cookies and back at 350 degrees for 30-35 min.

This batch made 8 large cookies and 30 small cookies. Numbers will vary depending on size of cookie cutter.

Farmer's Wife Tip: Copy your favorite recipes on 3 x 5 inch index cards. Sandwich the card between two layers of clear contact paper. Spills can be wiped off with a damp rag.

Come back tomorrow when we'll review this year's annual gingerbread house competition!
