Gentle Reader: Part of my growing family is my grand dog, Barley. She’s a 95 lb. yellow lab who loves the world and everything in it. Occasionally she gets to come for sleep-overs. About a year ago, I decided I wanted her to have special toys and treats when she is here. Well, the toys were easy to accommodate with a power trip to Pet Smart.
On to the next item: treats. She knows that word means Milk Bones at home. So I also decided the operative word at my house would be cookies. Of course they were going to be gourmet and homemade. I ventured online and found a couple of targets at Bulwinkle.com. More about the Breath Saver version another time. For today I’m talking about Everyday Biscuits.
Barley loves Everyday Biscuits so much that her mouth waters to the point of drooling all over the kitchen floor . . . aka Pavlov’s dog. Say the word cookies and simultaneously get the paper towels.
Of course I needed to buy the cool bone-shaped cookie cutters and learned the hard way to make them thicker and bigger. The first attempt made dozens and took a full afternoon to accomplish. Good thing she didn’t know then how good they were or I would have needed a personal floatation device to get out of the kitchen.
