Dog Treat: Apple Cinnamon Drop Cookies

I have been on a baking kick for weeks... Its the cold weather, you know. The moment fall rolls around I start thinking cookies, cakes and pies. We have enjoyed the offerings, but I had forgotten two very important parts of the family... Milo and Dixie. We are very careful not to give them human food. There are so many spices and foods which not only cause them to gain lots of weight but can kill them. But it doesn't keep them from turning their soulful eyes toward us when we are smacking our lips at the newest tasty treat that was just baked.

I knew there had to be some goodies I could make especially for them, so I started looking for homemade dog treat recipes through Google search. I came upon a site full of different ones...and even my human stomach was growling after reading through them!! I picked the first one which I had readily available all the ingredients and set off making my babies something good. Needless to say they loved it. In fact my human puppy was drooling over the aroma!!

Homemade Dog Treat Recipe Apple Cinnamon Drops

*1 large apple
*1/4 cup honey
*1/2 cup of water
*1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
*1 cup oatmeal
*1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
*1/8 cup whole wheat flour


Preheat oven to 350F. Core, slice and mince the apple (use a food processor if you have one). In a large bowl, combine the minced apple bits, honey, water, cinnamon, and oatmeal. Gradually blend in the wheat flour, adding enough to form a stiff dough.

Spoon the dough by rounded teaspoon onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing about 2 inches (5cm) apart. In a small bowl, add 1/8 cup wheat flour and using the bottom of a glass dipped in the wheat flour, flatten each spoonful of dough into a circle. Adjust the size of the drops based on how big a treat you like to feed your dog.

Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and flip each cookie to brown evenly on both sides. Reduce oven temperature to 325 ° F (180 °C). Return to oven and bake for an additional 30 minutes. Let cool overnight.

Makes about 3 dozen crunchy cookies
