Puppy Cakes

Sawyer found a recipe online for Puppy Cakes and wanted to make some for Truly.  We couldn't get the dough exactly right, so instead of using cookie cutters, she made free-form cookies.
Here's the recipe:

 Puppy Cakes
1 cup whole wheat flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup of shredded carrots

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Combine flour and baking powder in a bowl.
In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk, then add to dry ingredients and mix well.
Mix carrots into dough.
Drop by tablespoon on to greased cookies sheet and bake for 11-14 minutes.  Watch carefully so they don't burn.
Cool on a wire rack.
Serve warm - not hot!
Store in an airtight container for up to one week.

Ingredients for Puppy Cakes - minus the shredded carrots.

This was our first attempt at home-made hound treats, so we were really interested to know how they would turn out.

Clearly, Truly was interested, too.

Here's what they looked like:
Puppy Cakes!

They looked pretty tasty for dog cookies.  But what did Truly think of them?

Hmmmm  . . . .

Please, Girl, may I have some more . . . ?

Yum, yum, yum . . . . 

Good to the last bite . . . .  

Now it's time for Truly's after-snack nap.

We think the Puppy Cakes recipe is a keeper!  Greyt job, Sawyer!
