nightly bedtime prayers of one small bundle of sweetness with blue eyes.
We purchased a little dog bone cookie cutter and she informed me that we'd be making a double batch so that we could give dog biscuits to all of our furry little friends.
She is really growing up! All I basically needed to was stand there and take photos of her! Where did my baby go? She read the recipe, dug out all the ingredients, measured them out, mixed them, and went from there. The only thing I had to help with, was the final stir, as the biscuit mixture is crumbly and rubbery. It all comes together in the end though.
she slaved away in the kitchen, cooking biscuits for her friends! Don't you just love this photo? Even if you aren't a huge fan of dogs, she's a pretty cute one right here.
taste test on Lucy to see if she approved.
much to the delight of the little chef.
big mason jars with twine. I hit the screw-top lids with some oil rubbed bronze spray paint, and covered the round lid part with some Christmas paper. The entire thing was easy and fun for both Ava and I. (However, I never thought I'd post a dog recipe on this blog...)
Christmas Dog Biscuits: (This is a single batch. We doubled it to fill three jars.)
2 cups flour (whole wheat recommended)
1 cup grated cheese (we used parmesan)
2 TBSP melted butter
3/4 cup milk
*Mix all together until well mixed. (You may need to add some flour and kneed slightly.) Roll out onto lightly floured surface (or heavily floured if your seven year old is helping) and cut with dog bone shaped cookie cutter. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes.
