Fred's Carrot Cake Dog Cookies
Fred's Healthy Carrot Cake Dog Cookie Recipe
4 1/2 cups Oat Flour
1/2 Cup Quaker Oats
3 Tablespoons Chicken Broth
1 Tablespoon Molasses
2 Cup Carrots (about 70 baby carrots cooked then mashed)
1/4 Cup Parsley
1 Applesauce cup (4 oz, unsweetened)
Preheat oven at 350° F. Whisk egg in large bowl & add all other ingredients:
Fold with a spatula & stir with a fork until it's throughly mixed and looks like this:
Place dough into the refrigerator for 15-30 minutes. Place some parchment paper down on counter. Sprinkle with oat flour. Get your rolling pin out and dust with oat flour also. In addition, dust your cookie cutter with oat flour. Place cookie dough on parchment paper and roll out until it is about 1/4 of an inch in thickness. Use your cookie cutter to make shapes in the dough like this:
If the cookie dough is too sticky to roll, add a bit more oat flour to your batch & stir again, then try rolling again. If your dough is too dry, add some more chicken broth or cooked, mashed carrots. Place cutout dough on a silpat lined cookie sheet like so:
Roll out the rest of the dough and continue using cookie cutters till all the dough is cutout and placed on cookie sheets.
Place cookie sheets in oven for 35 minutes. You way want to flip them over after 18 minutes, if you made them too thin. If they are getting too dark and look like they are cooking too fast, go ahead and flip them. Use photo below as your guide for the darkness & color you are aiming for. If you don't make them thin enough you'll need to cook them longer, up to 50 minutes total cooking time. When the cookies are cooked enough they will be crispy. At that point, turn off the oven and leave in oven for two hours with the oven door closed. After two hours, remove cookies from oven and let cool on the cookie sheets. When cookies are cool, give out samples to your doggies:
This batch makes about 38 cookies using the bone shaped Wilton cookie cutters from Macys.com. Store the rest of the cookies in an airtight container. Open up the next day and smell the wonderful carrot cake scent! Options - add 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, may skip chicken broth, may substitute baby carrots with regular carrots.
