Mac has really been down in the dumps over the last week. We aerated and over-seeded the yard so that means no ball playing for two weeks! I'm not sure he's gonna make it. As we were watching football on Saturday we tossed the ball around the porch. He bounced around but never ran out of steam. He's a typical lab with lots of energy. He needs running lots of running!!!!
Well I think I got back in his good graces today with a new treat! I baked up a ginger treat that he gave two paws up. I gave him the first one to try and he scarfed it down. As I held up the second one he was actually drooling, smackin', and lickin' his lips. Then it hit me..... I'll name these goodies lip sMACin' ginger treats.
lip sMACin' ginger treats
inspired by 3 Dog Bakery Cookbook
Here's what you'll need:
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 teaspoons milk
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
Combine the oil, honey, vanilla, egg, and milk.
Then add in the flour, baking powder, and ginger. Mix until a dough forms. Turn it out on a floured surface and lightly knead. Roll out to about 1/4 inch and use cookie cutters to cut your favorite shapes.
Place shapes on a greased cookie sheet. Bake in a 375 degree preheated oven for 15 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack. Then feed them to your pooch! He or she will give you lots of kisses!!!
