Snerdlee, Dweezel, Hennesey and Barkley's Favorite Cookies
I have 4 min-pins, two just turned 4 this New Years Eve and 2 that will be a
year old on the 29th of January. I spoil my babies real bad, so my husband says.
My 4 dogs know when I am baking "cookies" for them as all 4 of them sit
in front of the oven waiting for them to come out (how they know it, is beyond me.
I am still trying to figure it out). These spoiled dogs will practically do anything
possible just to get a "cookie." I hope your dog or dogs enjoy them as
much as mine do. My daughter's cats even enjoy them too.
2 cups quick cooking oatmeal
1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces
or beef bouillon cubes
2 cups boiling water
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cups white or yellow cornmeal
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup skim milk
2 cups grated cheese
2 cups flour, and more as needed
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray cookie sheets with vegetable cooking spray
and set aside.
Measure out the oatmeal in a medium to large bowl and place the pieces of butter
along with the bouillon cubes. Pour the boiling water over the mixture and let sit
for 10 minutes to melt butter and dissolve the bouillon cubes.
Mix the contents well with a wooden spoon, then add the whole wheat flour, cornmeal,
sugar, milk, eggs and cheese mixing well to combine.
Add enough of the regular flour
to make a stiff dough, making sure that all of the ingredients are well incorporated
(I have had to use both my hands to do this step).
Roll out the dough onto a floured surface (for a crispy cookie, roll out the
dough 1/8-inch thick).
Cut out shapes of your choice and place on prepared cookie
Bake until very hard, about 5 to 15 minutes (depending on the thickness of the
Remove from sheets, cool on wire racks, and watch your dogs do tricks.
