Griffy Dog Cookies  (by Kate Griffith)

  • 2 cups Oatmeal
  • 1 stick butter – unsalted
  • 8-9 ounces peanut butter
  • 3 cups very hot water

(Mix above ingredients together and let stand until cool.)

  • 1 ½ cups corn meal
  • 1 ½ cups powdered milk
  • 2 eggs

(Mix, then add to above mixture.)

  • 6 cups flour – 2 cups regular, 4 cups whole wheat

Slowly add the flour to the mixture and mix well, kneading like bread.  Roll out to about ¼ to ½ inch thick. Cut into shapes.  Bake at 325° – 350° for about 1 hour.  Let stand until completely cool.  Fills two regular cookie sheets.

(Letting them cool completely keeps them longer before molding; these will typically be good for 4-6 weeks)

p.s. this is the recipe I’ve used before; I found that you need to cut the cookies fairly thick for two reasons: one, if they’re too thin they’ll burn easily; and two, this makes so much dough that it takes forever to bake if you only have two small cookie sheets.  It takes hours to bake them all (since they all need an hour in the oven) so if you need them on a Saturday, start baking on Tuesday or Wednesday!

Bone Appetite

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup wheat germ plus additional for “sprinkling”
  • ¼ cup nonfat dry milk powder
  • 1 cup chicken stock (home-made or canned, low sodium)
  • 3 tablespoons corn oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley (optional)

Preheat oven to 400° F.  Oil a large baking sheet with peanut oil or shortening.

Combine whole wheat and all-purpose flour, ½ cup of wheat germ, powdered milk and salt. In a small bowl, mix stock and oil. Put 1/3 flour mixture in a large mixing bowl.  Add ½ stock mixture and stir until well combined. Continue adding flour and stock mixture by thirds. Stir until well mixed.

Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface and knead well. Add additional all-purpose flour as necessary until dough is easy to handle but still soft. If desired, add parsley at this stage. Roll dough out on floured surface to desired thickness. Sprinkle with additional wheat germ. Cut with cookie cutter.

Bake 15-20 minutes or until fully baked. Turn off heat and allow hardening overnight, or as long as possible. Store covered in fridge or freezer. Makes about 1 ½  to 2 dozen.
