Everyone needs to be remembered on Valentine's Day, especially your best
friend. Three barks for Mo Plummer, who inspired this recipe and owns
Portland's Three Dog Bakery. You guessed it: this bakery is devoted to canine
confections. This recipe makes about 4 dozen bones and 8 dozen bribes!Unknown Source

    1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ·
    2 tablespoons ground ginger
  • ·
    1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • ·
    1/2 cup molasses
  • ·
    2 tablespoons honey
  • ·
    1/2 cup water

How to Make Doggy Bones and Bathtub Bribes


  1. Preheat oven to 375º. Set aside two greased baking sheets.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the flours, cornmeal, baking soda, ginger and
    cloves. In another bowl, use an electric mixer on low speed to blend the
    molasses, honey, water and oil.
  3. Add the flour mixture, 1/2 cup at a time,
    until blended and no flour shows. With lightly floured hands, gather the
    dough into a ball. Divide into quarters and flatten each into a disk.
  4. Leave
    one disk out and refrigerate the others, separated with waxed paper or
    plastic wrap. On a lightly floured surface, pat and roll out the first disk
    1/8" thick. Use the bone shaped cookie cutter to cut the dough into shapes.
  5. Use a spatula to transfer the bones onto a baking sheet, leaving 1/2" between
    them. Bake until set, or until the edges are beginning to color, 8-10
    minutes. Immediately, take one bone at a time, place it on a work surface,
    and use the heart shaped cookie cutter to cut and remove one heart from each
    end of the bone. The heart cookie will come up with the cutter. Pop it out
    with your fingertip and cool on a wire rack.
  6. For crisp biscuits, return the
    bones to the baking sheet, and bake for 5 minutes more. Repeat rolling,
    baking and cutting with the remaining dough. Store in an airtight container
    for up to 2 weeks, or freeze for up to 2 months. Note: you can substitute all
    purpose flour for the whole wheat flour and cornmeal.
