(easy) dog biscuits

Thursday, January 16, 2014

for the longest time, basically since we got Cooper, I've wanted to try my hand at making dog biscuits.  I set out to find a recipe over a year ago - Pinterest was my first stop (duh).  And yes, I did find plenty of dog biscuit recipes, but a lot of them either had way too many ingredients or ingredients that I had never heard of.  
If there's something you should know about me, it's that I hate wandering around in the grocery store, trying to find an ingredient.  If I can't find something when I'm there, I Google "What aisle is ...... in?"  If I can't find the Google answer, then I just forget it and either make the meal without that ingredient or completely skip the meal altogether.  
It's life or death situation, people.

So, while I was mindlessly browsing Pinterest this week, I stumbled up the PERFECT dog biscuit recipe.  It was perfect because it only had two ingredients, one of which I already had.  The other ingredient was....BABY FOOD.  Which is perfect, because Cooper is my freakin' baby!!!!!!!
I set out to go buy the baby food at Target.  Granted, I didn't find the baby food as quickly as I thought I would (doesn't it make sense that the baby food should be in the market part of the store...not where the baby clothes and supplies are??).  

The recipe is as follows:
2 cups flours
2 (4 oz) baby food jars (I used sweet potato)
Shredded Carrots for the topping (my idea)

Mix the flour and baby food together.  
Roll out on a floured surface to about 1/4"-1/2" thick.  
Top with shredded carrot pieces (I rolled over the dough again to push the carrots into the dough so they would stick)
Cut mini bars with a pizza cutter.  
 Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes.
This was Cooper after he had one of his dog biscuits.  Doesn't he look so happyyyyy?!
