Doggie Treats – Gingerbread Mailmen Recipe

2 cups whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon Ground Ginger

1/4 cup Canola Oil

1/4 cup Dark Molasses

1/4 cup Water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and ginger. In a small bowl stir together the oil, molasses and water. Add the molasses mixture to the flour mixture and stir until you have a soft dough. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out about 1/4 inch thick. Cut into gingerbread men or any other shape you like with a cookie cutter, a glass rim or a knife. Transfer the cookies to an ungreased baking pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until firm. Makes about 30 cookies depending on size. Store cooled cookies in a tightly sealed container.

Rexburg Animal Care – Pet Treat

Also Known As “Happy St. Patrick’s Day Cookies,” your meat-loving dog will sit on command if you serve this easy-to-make recipe.  Hey, where is it written that cookies must be sweet to taste good?  (This recipe was developed and tested by a veterinarian.)

  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 small jars beef-flavored baby food
  • 6 Tbsp beef gravy (low-sodium)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup nonfat dry milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  Lightly pat your hands with flour and shape the mix into a big ball.  Flatten the ball using a floured rolling pin.  Use a cookie cutter to cut the dough into shapes (try a shamrock for St. Patrick’s Day).  Place the cookies on a greased cookie sheet.  Bake for 25 minutes or until lightly browned.  Allow the cookies to cool before serving and store them in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
