Otto's Biscuits

Even the dog needs a holiday treat in his stocking. I made variation on a peanut butter and molasses biscuit. Otto of course adores these treats, but I think that dogs will eat just about everything that comes their way as long as it's food. Remember not to overfeed your pets or spoil them with too much food. Bad, bad bad for the doggie heart.

Otto's Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits
1 1/2 cups water
1/3 cup oil
2 large eggs
1/2 c. peanut butter
1 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cup unbleached flour
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup oats
2 tbsp blackstrap molasses
2 tbsp malted milk mix
Extra flour for rolling

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Blend first five ingredients together. Combine dry ingredients together and mix into wet mixture to form a ball of dough. Roll out and shape. You will need extra flour to prevent the dough from sticking to the rolling surface or rolling pin. I use a dog bone shaped cookie cutter to cut out the shapes. Sprinkle a cookie trays lightly and evenly with cornmeal. Place cookies on corn-meal dusted cookie trays.

Bake for 20 minutes. Turn off oven and allow the biscuits to cool in oven until crisp and hard. Store in airtight container. Give your dog a treat that will add some lift to his step and make you just one step above being a doggie god.
