Homemade Dog Cookies

It was Hayden’s Birthday yesterday and I can’t believe he’s already nine years old! Today, I made him some delicious (they smelled delicious) homemade cookies – I know I’m such a good brother.

I saw this recipe on a towel in my neighbor’s kitchen with the heading “Healthy Dog Cookies” and decided to try them out. They are really simple to make and if didn’t know they were dog cookies, I would have been eating the dough myself.
