It's International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day!

A while back, you met the monsters.

You did???Yes, you did.

Here they are more recently...And if you don't believe me that they are monsters, take a look at this...See what I mean?

But sometimes they can be good, like here...And here...
And even here...But these guys are here on this blog today to promote a very important holiday... International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day.

Did you know that there's such a thing as International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day?!

Actually, to be totally honest, around here every day is Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day. Because dog biscuits help us to be good. Dog biscuits help us to get from here to there. They help us to do fabulous entertaining tricks. And they help us to lay down and be good.


Well, okay, occasionally... enough that it's worth celebrating dog biscuits (we call them "cookies" around here).

We've made dog cookies on this blog before. But we can't let International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day go by without some major celebration... so let's make some more!

Personally, I think it's kind of lame to post a "homegrown" recipe that only has one little homegrown ingredient in it, (an egg), but the monsters encouraged me that it was the right thing to do... so here's the recipe:


3 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 egg

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon together in a bowl and blend with a wire whisk. Combine vegetable oil, water, and peanut butter in another bowl. Whisk that together. Add egg and whisk again. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir to combine as much as possible, then knead the dough by hand to incorporate all the dry ingredients into the dough. Turn bowl out onto a floured surface and press out to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut into pieces the appropriate size for your monsters. Place on cookie sheet. Bake about 30 minutes. After 30 minutes turn the oven off but leave cookies in oven for several hours or overnight before removing. Happiness is a full jar of dog cookies.
