Today's recipe is a cookie for all our four-footed furry friends and is also a dedication to a friend who moved on this past week, Celine (picture at left). She was 12 years old and was a loyal and loving companion to Jessica. May you rest in peace, Celine!
Ingredients: 1/2 cup water (add more later, if needed), 1/2 cup vegetable oil, 2 eggs, 3 tablespoons peanut butter, 2 teaspoons vanilla, 2 cups flour, 1/2 cup cornmeal, 1/2 cup oats.
Instructions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Blend water, oil, eggs, peanut butter and vanilla together in mixing bowl. Stir flour, cornmeal and oats together in another bowl, then add to wet ingredients and combine to form a ball of dough. On a floured surface, roll out to 1/2 inch thick with a floured rolling pin. Cut out shapes with cookie cutters dipped in flour. Place on ungreased baking sheet, pop into oven and bake for 20 minutes. Turn off oven and allow the cookies to cool in oven until crisp and hard. Store in an airtight container.
Makes about 2 dozen depending on size of cookie cutter used.
I found this recipe on-line at Bullwrinkle.com. Below is a picture of my taste-tester (Lilly)protecting her new cookie. She wouldn't give me her opinion, but she gobbled it right down, and I swear she smiled! (At least her tail wagged!)
