It's a brand new month and you know what that means: COOKIES! Well, cookie instructions anyway. Courtesy of the awesome people at Bubba Rose Biscuit Company who said it's OK for me to share recipes from their Organic Dog Biscuit Cookbook.

We haven't tried this recipe yet, but awhile ago my human made one up using stuff we had in our kitchen and the cookies came out supertasty. If my human's imaginary recipe can turn
oats, bacon and carrot juice into supertasty cookies, you know the Bubba Rose recipe will be ridiculously good. And pink instead of orange :)


Whole Lotta Love

1 cup oat flour

1 1/4 cup rice flour
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

1 6 oz can tomato paste
1 TBS beet powder [or juice] (optional for color)
1 egg
2 1/3 cup water

* * *

Preheat oven to 350. Combine all ingredients together and mix until a dough forms. Roll out on lightly floured surface to 1/4" thickness. Use a heart shaped cookie cutter (or a knife) to cut out shapes. Place the cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet (they can be close together as they don't grow much while cooking).

Bake 20-25 minutes. Transfer and let cool completely on a wire rack. Store the cookies in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Here are some important things I've learned about cookies:

* add bacon (bacon makes even the best-tasting things taste even better)

* shape dough into small balls for easy eating (cute shapes are, uh, cute - but balls are aerodynamic!)

* the smaller the cookies, the more you'll get to eat

* skip the airtight container -
immediately eat as many cookies as possible while your human isn't looking

I like the "skip the container" part. I'll have to try these for my pups!

Hiya Puglet,
Our mom got Bubba Rose's book but she hasn't tried any recipies yet, she made lots of cookie dough from another book and stashed it in the freezer, something about a rainy day.. but we never listen to that nonsense. Cookies are meant to be eaten not stuck in a big cold box. We're with you skip the container and load up the stomach!

PS, mom found pink yogurt chips to make a drizzle out of. We think *bacon* would be better !!

Puglet! Just in time! I slimmed down a little (Mommy is THRILLED I have a waist again) and can have cookies again. Thank you AND Bubba Rose for the recipes!
Love Noodles

Are there any recipes that have no grains (or potato or beef) for a poor little pug who is allergic to EVERYTHING?

My stomach is the best air tight container to put those cookies in!

Noodle said...

Mmmm... these sound delicious! And, perfect timing for not only Valentine's Day but for my Gotcha day on the 20th!! Oh boy!! Thanks for helping the humans out by providing them the perfect pug-friendly gift ideas!!!

Puglet - I don't believe it! My human read this, and she actually ordered the book. Turns out Amazon can send us a copy all the way from America. I can't wait!

We think that since you're watching your weight that you should bring the cookies to PugSun this Sunday to share with all the pugs and pug friends; just as weight management strategy.
