Healthy Holiday Dog Cookies

  1. Step 1

    GATHER THE INGREDIENTS -- You will need the following ingredients to make the dog Christmas cookies: 1/2 cup cornmeal, 6 tablespoons vegetable oil, 2/3 cup water or broth (chicken or beef), 2 cups of whole wheat flour, and red or green food coloring (optional).

  2. Step 2

    GATHER THE SUPPLIES -- You will need the following supplies to make the dog Christmas cookies: a rolling pin or any round item that can be used as a rolling pin, Christmas shaped cookie cutters (or you can just cut free hand), wax paper, and a cookie sheet.

  3. Step 3

    MIX THE INGREDIENTS -- Mix the cornmeal and the whole wheat flour then add the oil and water (or broth). You can also add some food coloring if you want red or green bones (you can split the dough and make both colors). Mix the mush with your hands. If it's too wet, add some more flour. If it's too dry, add a bit more water (or broth). Do not be overly concerned about getting it just right. As long as you can roll it out, you're good! Fido won't care if it's perfect or not.

  4. Step 4

    CUT AND BAKE THE DOG CHRISTMAS COOKIES -- Roll the dough out onto a floured board until it's about 14 inch thick. Then cut shapes with cookie cutters or just cut free hand. Place the cookies on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 to 35 minutes (over cooked is better than undercooked). Remove from the oven and let cool. Store in plastic bags and give to dogs for Christmas!
