Dog cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp blackstrap molasses
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 1/4 cups rice flour


Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Combine apple sauce, egg, molasses, and cinnamon in a bowl.
  3. Incrementally add flour until the dough has a firm, pliable consistency.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll your dough and cut into shapes. Yield will vary with size.
  5. Place on a prepared cookie tray and lightly brush the surface with a pastry brush or damp clean cloth to remove excess flour.
  6. 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.


Tips:

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.
