My belated Tuesday at the Herbal Table

Happy Wednesday everyone!  If you are looking for my giveaway - click here - and good luck!!

Ok - you may remember my Peanut Butter, Jam and Bacon sandwich a little while ago that I linked up to "At the {summer} Table".   I loved the reactions to my simple sandwich -- some of you thought I was crazy and a few of you liked the look of it!  [try it - you'll love it!!]

Well, Debbie from A Quilters Table is having another link up - this one called Tuesday at the {herbal} Table.  I have decided to share a treat that we make for Jax, who is my four-legged-best-furry-friend.  Ok, just one quick pic before I type the recipe out!  Here is Jax looking all fierce with his "kill"...  [EDIT: it is a stuffed dog toy by the way]

Dog Biscuits - with parsley [recipe adapted from Canadian Living Magazine]

NOTE:  this recipe uses measuring cups - not a scale
  • 1 and a 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1 cup skimmed milk powder
  • 1/3 cup melted meat fat (beef, lamb or bacon)
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
In bowl, combine whole wheat flour and white flour with skimmed milk powder.  Drizzle with melted fat.  Add egg and water, mix well.  Gather dough into ball.  On lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/2" thickness.  Cut using a dog bone shaped cookie cutter or shape of your choice (smaller shapes are better as they are quite crunchy and dry).  Bake on an ungreased baking sheet in a 350* oven.  Cool and use as reward treats for your dog.  Best stored in an airtight container.

I hope your four-legged-best-friend enjoys them.

I'm so glad you said it was a stuffed toy - it looked a bit like a dead squirrel!
