Luckie's StoryI had so much fun yesterday making these yummy treats for my fur baby Luckie. Luckie is a Yorkie-Poodle (Yorkie-Poo) He's the cutest dog ever and is very protective over my Mini-King. Luckie is part of the family and we love him dearly. Everyone loves him in my family.When friends and family visit. Luckie is the center of attention. We adopted him a couple of years ago, and when we first adopted him I don't believe he was used to so much attention. He wasn't a lap dog at all. He didn't like to be held and pretty much would do his own thing. Years later and he loves to cuddle and loves to be held.
The Cooling Process
Ginger Bread Dog Treats Adapted From
- 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (I use all-purpose)
- 1 tbsp ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves
- 1/4 cup molasses
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 tbsp canola oil
- Preheat oven to 325° F
- In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, ginger, cinnamon, cloves.)
- In a small bowl, using a wooden spoon, stir together the wet ingredients (molasses water and canola oil.)
- Pour the wet mixture into the flour mixture.
- Using the same wooden spoon stir ingredients together until thoroughly combined.
- Roll out the dough to about 1/2 inch thickness.
- Use your favorite holiday cookie cutters to cut shapes.
- If needed Lightly spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
- Place your cut outs on the baking sheet.
- Continue to roll and cut out shapes with the remaining dough.
- Bake for 20 minutes.
- Cool completely on a wire rack.
