This one's for the dogs!

DOG BISCUITS

1/2 c. cornmeal
2 c. whole wheat flour
6 Tbsp. vegetable oil
2/3 c. vegetable broth

We've made these before, and they are so easy, even a kid (or two) could make them!








Mix all the ingredients together well.














Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness.















Cut into desired shapes with a cookie cutter.













Bake 35-40 minutes. Let cool.














Store in your favorite doggie treat container, and dispense frequently.






Our bone shaped cookie cutters came from PeTA, along with the recipe. Check the sight, they have cool stuff for your animal companion.









Jolie liked them! She's our rescue dog. Avarie and I were volunteering for Best Friends at La Brea Tar Pits July of 2000. At the end of the day, she was the only pup not adopted and it didn't look good for her. I called Art to tell him of the situation, and without meeting her, said, "Bring her home", and she has been home for 7 years now. She is such a good dog. Check out her special talent! She will hold this pose until I say, and sometimes she can even catch it in the air. We love you & Happy Anniversary, Jolie! <3

Such a cute dog, how could you NOT adopt her. She even looks like a good dog - and good dogs deserve treats!

What a beautiful dog! That is the cutest face ever.

I must say that your girls look mighty adorable, making such professional looking dog biscuits. My dog wishes you guys lived closer :-)

Does it get better than this? Wow, what a story you tell here about the rescue of beautiful, talented, sweet queen Jolie.

i had NO idea about her background. i'm like sitting here with my jaw dropping down.

Could you and Art be any cooler, kinder, sweeter, more beautiful inside and out? i am moved by this post, Vicki.

Great kids, great dog, great photos, great love, great food... i love this post.

Happy anniversary, Jolie!!

And i <3 all of you! :o)

Joy said...

Jolie is aptly named - she's so pretty! She has the same sweet look that my pup (pup, he's nearly 12!) has, I love it! I'm going to make this treats as soon as I restock the cornmeal! Thanks for posting this, and happy anniversary Jolie!

I love the pics of your girls in the kitchen. They are alway so cute.

What a sweet looking pup? Impressive that you got her to pose with the biscuit on her head!

The lavender festival looked very cool. Have you made Lolo's lavender shortbread cookies from veganyumyum? How about lavender lemonade? ---Both are favorites of mine.

Oh my gosh, how could she have been the only one not to be adopted? She looks so beautiful and *cute*! Happy anniversary, Jolie! You deserve lots of treats (and kisses and belly rubs)!

Melody Polakow said...

She is just beautiful... her eyes are so incredibly honest and wonderful... she has to have some pit bull in her... she looks so much like Jorda....

thanks for posting the recipe... I need to make some doggy treats!

I love that you baked for Jolie. What a good girl! There's a doggie bakery at my farmers market and I'm always thrilled to see how crowded it is.

vko said...

Oh happy anniversary to you & Jolie! What a sweet sweet face, of course her name is Jolie! I can't even imagine what would have been if destiny did not put you in her path & she in yours. Truly amazing- happy anniversary again!

Holler said...

I love your step by step photos! And what a patient dog you have!

Theresa said...

What a gorgeous dog! How appropriate that you have a heart-shaped treat on her head... those look like they were made with love, and the love in her eyes is obvious!

bookmama said...

What a sweet and trusting face Jolie has!

KleoPatra said...

Mattie loves the cookies -thank you again for that goodie box o'treats for Mattie (and me!). The recipe is so simple, i think i'll make them sometime as well.

i tried to put a heart cookie on her head like Jolie but there was no chance of it staying there. i'll let Heidi try next time...

You are the BEST! And i'm super stoked you'll be getting the package this week. FINALLY! Sorry you have to travel to get it. That's the last time i try that trick...
