Shelby Lynn's Favorite Oatmeal Doggie Cookies

I haven't had much time to do any baking the past few weeks with all that's going on, so when tonight gave way to some extra spare time, I started working on our fur babies Christmas gifts. We have one dog (Shelby Lynn) that has completely turned her nose up on store bought treats, so in order to give her something special I have to make them for her. Geesh! Picky little thing *grin.* But I love her. So here is one of her favorite things to snack on...

Shelby Lynn's Favorite Oatmeal Doggie Cookies

1 c. uncooked oatmeal
¾ c. cornmeal
3 c. whole wheat flour
¾ c. powdered milk
½ c. margarine
1 tsp. bouillon granules
1 ½ cup homemade chicken broth
1 beaten egg

Preheat oven to 325*

Dissolve bouillon in meat broth, then pour into a large mixing bowl.

Add margarine & oatmeal & stir. Let sit 5 minutes to cool.

tir in powdered milk, cornmeal & egg.

Add flour, 1/2 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth.

Roll dough out to 1/2" thickness & cut into shapes freehand or using a cookie cutter.

Place onto a silpat lined or greased cookie sheet.

Bake 50- 60 minutes, allow to cool & dry out until hard.

ield: Using a 3" dog bone cookie cutter I average about 35-37 cookies.
