Today’s Dog Treat Cookie Recipe

CHEEZIE MINT MILK BONES – GLUTEN FREE (with OPTION)
Did you know?
Mint
provides Vitamin B, C, B12, Folic Acid, Thiamin and Riboflavin as well as the minerals calcium and iron. Mint is also soothing to the stomach and nervous system and helps alleviate nausea and GAS! Mint is a germicidal and breathe freshener, it takes care of oral health by inhibiting harmful bacterial growth inside your pet’s mouth and by cleaning their tongue and teeth. As well as being a natural diuretic it is also an excellent anti-depressant for dogs.

Cheezie Milk Bones

CHEEZIE MINT MILK BONES – GLUTEN FREE
3 cups All-Purpose Gluten Free Flour – see OPTION
1/2 cup Dry Milk Powder
3 tbsp. Fresh Mint – finely chopped
1/2 cup Cheese, Lactose Free – finely grated and/or finely chopped
1 cup warm Chicken Stock, no onion, no garlic – low sodium
1 Egg – lightly beaten
Preheat oven to 165° C (325° F) and line a cookie tray with parchment paper.
In a large bowl add flour, dry milk powder, mint, cheese and mix together.
Pour the warm chicken stock into flour mixture, then add beaten egg and mix together thoroughly.
Working with flours that lack gluten can be tricky; the dough crumbles and pulls apart easily, if you find you just can’t incorporate all of the crumbles in the bottom of your mixing bowl, don’t worry, in the next step, you will be able to bring it all together.
Turn the dough (and flour crumbles) out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead and fold, working in those flour crumbles, until the mixture fully comes together and you can form a dough ball.
Roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thick and using a cookie cutter or a sharp knife cut out shapes. Place cut outs on cookie tray, they don’t spread during cooking so you can place them close together.
Gather dough scraps and repeat the process of knead, form, roll and place until all dough is used.
Bake for 50 minutes.
OPTION: You can substitute All Purpose Gluten Free Flour for All Purpose Flour.
Bake for 30 – 35 minutes if using All Purpose Flour.

Remove the tray from oven and allow cookies to rest for 5 – 10 minutes.
Remove cookies from tray and place them on wire cooling rack to cool completely.
Yield is approximately 40 bone cookies using a 2 inch cutter.

Storage, Refrigeration and Freezing instructions:
Store in zip lock bags or air tight containers in your refrigerator.
Allow to come to room temperature before feeding.
Home-baked dog treats contain no preservatives, so they can mold or spoil the same as home-baked people cookies/cakes do. Other variables, ingredients/moisture content of the treat and climate conditions will also determine the storage time.
Refrigeration will prolong the life of home-made dog treats.
Freeze for up to 6 months – Always allow treats to thaw completely before feeding.

Feed these CHEEZIE MINT MILK BONES only as a treat.
Treats should not make up more than 10% of your pet’s diet.
As with any treat, always provide fresh water after feeding.

Be sure to check the recipe for any known foods or ingredients your pet may be allergic to.
If in doubt, check with your Vet.

    I swear if my human mommy doesn’t make one of your treat recipes with me this week, I am going to chew something . . . and I haven’t ever, ever chewed anything I’m not supposed to chew. I hope she’s sees this and gets the message. Otherwise, I might just pack my bags and move to Australia to live with you and the 3ms!

      Hey Miss Harper Lee, I’m sure your human mommy is looking through her pantry right now, trying to decide what treat she’s going to bake you! A friend of ours in Ohio, Pebbles the GR, chewed something last week and “accidentally” swallowed it. Pebbles had to have a “big operation”… The Doctors found a pen, a rubber band, a metal bottle top and 3 rocks in her tummy! You are a very good girl for not chewing, we’ve been known to “steal” and “chew” Dad’s socks and undies and Mom’s woolie slippers – don’t tell anyone though. I’m sure your human Mommy would be very sad if she saw you packing your bags…we know she loves you very much! Thanks for reading and writing us Miss Harper Lee, we love hearing from you.

the 3m's send you ♥ sniffs and thanks for reading & commenting.
