Holiday Recipe: Autumn Apple Puppy Pies
Posted by Dalmatian DIY on 7th December 2016
- 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp blackstrap molasses
- 1 tbsp cinnamon (optional)
- 1 1/4 cups rice flour
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Combine apple sauce, egg, molasses, and cinnamon in a bowl.
- Incrementally add flour until the dough has a firm, pliable consistency.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll your dough and cut into shapes. Yield will vary with size.
- Place on a prepared cookie tray and lightly brush the surface with a pastry brush or damp clean cloth to remove excess flour.
- Bake for approximately 15 minutes. You can let them sit a while in the cooling oven before removing if you would like a crunchier cookie. Cool before serving and storing.
To create mini apple pie shapes as pictured, cut with a small, round biscuit cutter, place onto your prepared baking tray, and then roll lightly with a ravioli/pasta cutter to create indentations. This leaves a fluted pattern, but you can use a standard knife to make a straight pattern instead. You may find a very light spritz of olive oil applied just before baking helpful to maintain your pretty pie pattern, as low-fat doggy cookies are dry and often crack a little during baking.
