Dog Cookies in a Jar ~ Cheryl's Delights

Looking for a gift for a dog lover?  How about homemade pup treats!  This is an easy project that is fun to make with the kiddos!



1 cup wheat flour

1 cup of oatmeal, blended into flour

½ cup cornmeal

2 teaspoons beef or chicken boullion granules

1 tsp garlic powder

1 cup milk powder

½ cup grated Parmesan cheese



Use a funnel to layer ingredients; in the order above, into a one quart jar.  Pack each layer firmly with the back of a spoon.  When all layers are in place fill the jar with flour, to top it off (1/4-1/2 cup).




The instructions to include with your gift are as follows…

Preheat oven to 250°

Empty jar mix into a bowl. Stir together 2 eggs & 1 cup hot water. Add to mix. Combine w/ fork until stiff dough forms. Add a little flour or water if dough is too sticky or too dry.

Roll out dough on floured board to ½ inch thickness. Dip cookie cutters in flour before cutting out each cookie. Re-roll the leftovers and cut as many cookies as possible.

Bake for about 90 minutes, or until cookies are dry and hard, turning pan at 1/2 time for even cooking. Turn off heat & leave in the oven to dry if necessary. Cookies are usually baked until they are hard and crunchy. Let cool completely before storing in an airtight jar.

I have shortened the instructions to help them fit onto a printable business card.  In the above picture I printed both sides of a business card and folded it in half.  I like the size and the weight of a folded business card on a jar.

As for the fabric, it is best to use very light fabric in order to be able to screw on the lid.  If you cannot find a thin fabric simply use a rubber band to attach your fabric to the jar.  Hide the rubber band with ribbon.   You may choose to leave the fabric off all together.  I used raffia instead of ribbon to attach my card and cookie cutter.

I found this recipe here with a label that you can print if you do not want to make your own.
