Hello Evfurry Body!
We have been pretty lazy about blogging for quite a while, but you know when the snow is up to your knees, and the temperature is sub-zero you don't want to do much except hang around the house where its warm, reading books and watching movies!
Do you know Sue of the Portuguese Water Dog Blog? She and my Mom are good pals and Sue is always coming up with something good in the doggy cookie department. So she finally put my Mom to shame with her stinky little Milk Bone treatz and my Mom visited a site that Sue mentioned that has lots of dog treat recipes on it. It is the Doggy Dessert Chef blog . She looked around until she found Ham and Cheese Dog Biscuits and cooked them up by this recipe:
Ham and Cheese Dog Biscuits
1 cup ham, cooked and chopped
1/2 cup shredded cheddar
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup milk
1 T. wheat germ (omitted, did not have!) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Allow cheese to be at room temperature and in a large bowl combine all ingredients until mixed. Roll out to 1/2 " thick, cut into shape with cutter of choice, lay on ungreased cookie sheets and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Cool and refrigerate. (Mom note: I don't like rolling dough, so I used my smallest disher (one inch), which gave me a nice little ball, and I pressed that out with a floured cup bottom! This gave me about 3 dozen 50 cent size cookies which is just perfect for Stella.Don't you agree? I don't always feed her by hand except if I want a picture, I have to, or she would grab her cookie and take it to her treat place.
While its still Mom's turn, I want to ask how many of you read Derfwad Manor (lowering the bar for women everywhere) It is so funny to me, I get lots of laughs out of this blog and think that you might too.
Thanks for reading, evfurry buddy and I will tell you those ham and cheese cookies are plenty good!
Stella, Ali Zophia and Mom
