Holiday Cookies are not just for people.....your dog will love these cookies!

Chicken/Beef Dog Treats

Preparation Method -------- ------------ --------------------------------
3 jars baby food -- (2 1/2 oz. each) either beef or chicken
1/4 cup Dry milk powder
1/4 cup Wheat germ (cream of wheat can be substituted for wheat germ)

Combine ingredients in bowl and mix well. Roll into small balls and place on well-greased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with a fork. Bake in preheated 350F. oven for 15 minutes until brown. Cool on wire racks and STORE IN REFRIGERATOR. Also freezes well. *Variation: substitute cream of wheat for wheat germ and then used tablespoon to make cookie sized drops on plate.

Microwave for 4 minutes on Medium-High. Suggest keeping an eye on them in microwave and perhaps start out for only 3 1/2 minutes. They do come out soft. Also suggested using Beef/Vegetable Dinner Baby Dinner instead of Beef or Chicken.

Cookies are soft and chewy (good for older pets who have lost a few teeth). And they can be whipped up in no time.

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup natural peanut butter
1 cup skim milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Combine flour and baking powder in one bowl, and peanut butter and milk in another. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix well. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll out to 1/4 inch thick and cut out shapes with a cookie cutter. Place on greased baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.

Cool in rack and store in an airtight container.
