My girls absolutely love these cookies. My husband and our friend even taste tested them and told me they were amazing. I was told if I made them a little sweeter they would great for humans as a cookie. My son thought I was making cookies for him till I told him they were for the girls, he was jealous....

Bake 12-15 minutes. When done, cookies should be firm to the touch. Turn oven off, leave in oven for 1-2 hours to harden.

Storing
1.
Store dog treats the same way you would homemade people cookies. The amount and type of fat in the recipe and your local weather conditions can make a big difference in storage method.
2.
Know that if your recipe uses fats such as butter, or meat bits or juices then you might want to store the spares in the fridge or even the freezer.
3.
Keep a good supply in the Doggie Cookie Jar on the counter and refill from the ones stored.

Refrigeration and Freezing
1.
Understand that refrigeration will prolong the life of more fragile dog treats. Make sure to store in a tightly sealed container. If you have friends who eat Shaklee Instant Protein etc, ask for their spare containers; they are amazing for storing homemade dog treats in the fridge!
2.
Also use things called Lock N Lock containers, which are flatter and square, and are more efficient for freezer space.

Tips
• Use a variety of Flours. Quinoa, Amaranth, Rice, Barley, Wheat or whatever suits you, and whatever your Health Food Store has.
• You can find all the ingredients at any health food store. Make several batches and store them so that you need do the work once every couple of months

There are many types of dry treats that you can make for your pets, such as biscuits, crackers and cookies. Making your own pet treats is healthy for your pet and can save you money as long as you store them properly. Homemade pet treats often lack the preservatives that allow commercial pet treats to last, which means it is crucial to store them in airtight food containers to prevent mold, bacteria and staleness.
