Danish Cinnamon Rolls..Dog Cookies

Posted by: angbruce88

 

Here is one that smells great when you bake them, and the greys love them!!

 

3 cups whole wheat flour

½ cup honey

¼ tsp. baking powder

¼ tsp. baking soda

1 Tbsp. vanilla

2 Tbsp. cinnamon

¾ cup water

 

Preheat oven to 325°. Mix all dry ingredients except Cinnamon. Add wet ingredients, mix thoroughly. Knead dough. Roll out into ½ inch square patty. Sprinkle cinnamon over entire surface. Roll dough into a tight log. Freeze for 30 minutes. Slice into ½ inch slices. Bake on baking sheet for 35-40 minutes. Yield 12-18 slices.

I get many more than the recipe says when I make these.

HattieMae'S Gluco Cookies

Posted by: angbruce88

 

Here's the recipe. It makes 16 cookies, each 2" in diameter. I put 16 doses of glucosamine in the dough, so for me that means I measure out 16 1/2 teaspoons. If you normally give more than 1/2 teaspoon, then increase the amount you add to the dough.

 

2 small jars baby meat

1 cup wheat germ

your glucosamine

 

Blend all into a dough. Form dough into small balls, then flatten into cookies. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 325 degrees for about 10-12 minutes. Watch carefully. For some reason the glucosamine makes the cookies tend to burn very quickly.

 

The cookies are more on the chewy side instead of being crispy, unless they get a little overdone. I've found that my girls will eat them even if they're fairly burned.

 

I haven't ever made a double batch, but if I did I think I'd refrigerate the extras - their moistness makes me think they'd mold quickly at room temperature.

 

My girls love them, and pester me at suppertime until they get theirs.

Dog Shortbread

Posted by: angbruce88

 

I got this one from the Three Dog Bakery Book:

 

½ cup honey

¼ cup veg shortening

2 tsp. vanilla

2 cups white flour

 

Preheat oven to 325°.

Mix honey, shortening and vanilla with flour. Roll into golf-ball size balls. Flatten slightly and place on baking sheet. Bake approx. 25 minutes until slightly browned.

Let cool on a rack or pan, then store in a sealed container.

Makes 24 treats.

 

 

Hattiemae variation: I may try substituting whole wheat flour for the white since it's supposed to be healthier. Even though I don't eat it, there's no reason the girls shouldn't.

Canine Crunchies

Posted by:  Ellen Eve Baz

 

Here's the recipe for easy Canine Crunchies:

 

1 cup wheat germ, 2 tall jars meat/vegetable baby food, or 4 small jars meat baby food

 

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix ingredients thoroughly. Dough will be stiff. Pinch off pieces to form 1/2 inch balls. Place balls on greased cookie sheet and flatten with fork. Bake 20-35 minutes, until desired hardness is reached. The longer, the crunchier. Store in sealed container in fridge. May be frozen for later enjoyment.

 

 

Also, here's some Feline Cuisine recipes for our other friends, or they would also be good for tempting a dog with a poor appetite, or to serve at a silly dog birthday party, etc.

 

Salmon Snacks

 

Spread very thin pieces of fresh or crumbled canned salmon on lightly buttered bread. Top with another piece of buttered bread. Press slices firmly together and trim crusts. Cut using a fish-shaped cookie cutter. Can be stored in fridge for 2-3 days.

 

 

Kitty Creams

 

Fill a miniature pastry shell with whipped cream and wath kitty lap it up!

 

 

Tuna Mousse Balls

 

Mix tuna with a very little mayonnaise. Form into 1-inch balls. Can be stored in refrigerator for 2-3 days.

Cat poop cookies for Paula

Posted by:   Vinnie and Rexs mom

 

Well, she asked...

(Greyhound Companions Cookbook - reciepe from the Internet - no addy. Cookies are for people - I'll bet they'd look like dog poop if you left out the G-nuts and were creative w/ the shapes)

Can be made w/ chocolate or gingerbread ingredients.

 

CHOCOLATE

1/2 c. honey, 2/3 c. butter or marg., 1 egg, 1 t. vanilla or peppermint extract, 2 c. whole wheat flour,1/3 c. cocoa, 1 lg box grapenuts

 

GINGERBREAD

1/4 c. honey, 1/4 molasses, 2/3 c. butter or marg.,1 egg, 2 1/3 c. whole wheat flour, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves to taste, 1 lg box grapenuts

ADD INS (gross!)

coconut- tape worms, chocolate, butterscotch, or peanut butter chips, cooked spagetti or ramen noodles- round worms, peanuts for corn (food coloring - my cocker used to eat Crayolas, prettiest poop in the county)

 

micro about 1 min. until honey bubbles. Add butter and molasses, if any. add egg and mix well, then mix in other stuff EXCEPT G-nuts. Add mix-ins. Chill 1 hour in frezer or several hours in fridge. Roll dough in random lengths of poop. Roll logs in G-nuts. Bake 350 for 10-15 min.

 

Suggestions that follow include serving in BRAND NEW disposable litter box w/ CLEAN cat scoop (caps are me talking)on a bed of G-nuts. Can use plastic flys or other suggestions include (yuck) melted chocolate in box or pudding. I think you could make this reciepe work for dog poops too.

(I'm thinking dogs here, how about those pretty fall colored silk tree leaves - serve 'em on those!)

Potato Soup

Posted by:  greytdawg

 

I have the best potato soup you've ever had! It was given to me by my chef friend across the street.

The secret is canned milk. Its got 1 pound of bacon cut up and cooked, drain most of the grease and add one chopped onion and saute til soft. I used 3 good sized potatoes, peeled and grated, chicken stock-enough to cover and cook the potatoes but not so much that when you add a couple of cans of canned milk it will be runny. Also, I rinse 2 of the 3 potatoes so it isn't

too starchy.

She made this for a luncheon and it was sooooo good!

Corn Quiche

Posted by: Islandgreys

 

I borrowed this from Wilma's board. It sounds so good! With all that Florida corn beginning to hit the supermarkets, it's a good time of year for this recipe.

 

FRESH CORN QUICHE

 

The Mainstay Inn offers this simple brunch dish.

 

3 large eggs

1/2 small onion, coarsely chopped

1 tablespoon all purpose flour

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 1/3 cups half and half

3 tablespoons butter, melted

2 cups fresh corn kernels (cut from about 2 ears) or frozen, thawed

1 deep-dish frozen pie crust, thawed

 

 

Preheat oven to 375°F. Combine first 5 ingredients in processor; blend until onion is finely chopped. Add half and half and butter; process just until blended. Transfer to large bowl. Mix in corn. Pour into crust. Bake until filling is slightly puffed and top is golden, about 50 minutes. Transfer to rack; cool slightly. Serve warm.

 

Makes 6 servings.

Frosty Paws

Posted by:  Brindled Greys  

 

Recipe from Judadair:

 

"I mix a large can of pumpkin with two containers of vanilla yogurt, pour into dixie cups, place on a cookie sheet, and freeze. When frozen I store in Ziploc bags. The dogs love them just as much as the Frosty Paws, especially on a hot day."

 

 

SportsPage variation

I bought the big economy size yogurt, but for the recipe I used the equivalent of two small size yogurts--12 oz. of yogurt total

 

I mixed it with the large can of pumpkin and scooped it into ice trays--it made about 3 ice trays full with a little left over--it's actually not bad for humans!!

 

The consistency (before freezing) was fairly thick, so I guess if you want it thinner, add more yogurt.
