More Bones ...
Joan is making me bones again --- as I write this. It doesn't smell as good as that salami she's been taking out of the fridge in the last few days (I come running for that but she doesn't give me any.) In any case, she varied the recipe this time and she also did not take the time to roll out the dough and use cookie cutters to make bone shapes (what a laze).
She just put it out in the trays as if it was cookie dough, spreading it to the edges. Honestly, I guess I don't care.
Here's the recipe she used tonight (she doubled it from before cuz she had defrosted a lot of broth.)
6 cups wheat flour
1 cup dry nonfat milk
2/3 cups shortening
2 cups broth (make sure there is no onion, onion powder, garlic in it - those are toxic to dogs)
1 carrot, grated
1/2 small apple, grated
1/2 cup applesauce
Mix the flour and milk in a bowl. Cut in the shortening with a fork or pastry blender. Mix the broth and eggs in a separate bowl. Add broth mixture, applesauce, carrot, and apple to flour mixture. Mix until blended and the dough comes away from the sides. Add more broth if needed.
Roll out on a flat, floured surface to 1/4" thick. Cut cookies into shapes, if desired. Place on greased cookie sheet. Make sure you bake all the dough as doggies don't care if the shapes don't make sense.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes until edges are brown and they look dry. Remove and cool treats. When all have been cooked, load all cookies onto one cookie sheet and put into the oven, shut door, and leave for 8 hours.
Keep in ziploc in freezer as these do not have any preservatives and will get moldy if left out. Remove bones daily for your favorite dog!
