A contributed recipe from reader Ron Perron

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup flour 1 cup skimmed milk powder
1/3 cup melted fat(beef, lamb, bacon)
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup cold water

In a mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat and all-purpose flours and mild powder. Drizzle with melted fat. Add egg and water and mix well. Gather dough into a ball. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/2 inch (1 cm) thickness. Cut into dog bone shape. Bake on ungreased baking sheets in 350F oven for 40 -50 min or until dark and crispy.

Baby Food Soft Doggie Cookies Recipe
Exported from MasterCook

3 jars baby food (2 1/2 oz. each) either beef or chicken
1/4 cup Dry milk powder
1/4 cup Wheat germ (cream of wheat can be substituted for wheat germ)

Combine ingredients in bowl and mix well. Roll into small balls and place on well-greased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with a fork. Bake in preheated 350F. oven for 15 minutes until brown. Cool on wire racks and STORE IN REFRIGERATOR. Also freezes well.

Variation: substitute cream of wheat for wheat germ and then used tablespoon to make cookie sized drops on plate. Microwave for 4 minutes on Medium-High. Suggest keeping an eye on them in microwave and perhaps start out for only 3 1/2 minutes. They do come out soft. Also suggested using Beef/Vegetable Dinner Baby Dinner instead of Beef or Chicken.

Tester's note: Definitely something to howl about! Cookies are soft and chewy (good for older pets who have lost a few teeth). And they can be whipped up in no time.

Heat honey and peanut butter until runny (about 20 seconds in the microwave. Mix ingredients together and drop by 1/2 teaspoonful onto cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees Farenheit for 8 to 10 minutes. My dog is a Pug, and a half a biscuit is plenty for her.
