Treats, for your best friends.....

You cook for yourself and for your loved ones, why not make treats for your best friend, ok Man's best friend.  Your dog and your cat.  Here are a few idea's:
-----------------------
CAT CRACKERS
6 ounces of undrained Sardines in oil (no flavorings!)
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup flour
1/3 cup water
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Measure all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly with your hands. Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness and cut into treat sized pieces. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden. Let cool. Give to your cat and watch them gobble it up.  You can make them once a month and store for weeks.(By The Way, they REALLY stink while you cook them, but that's what makes them attractive to your cat.

Breath Freshening Biscuits For Dogs
Ingredients:
3/4 cup minced parsley leaves and tender stems
1/4 cup finely grated carrot
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup corn flour or finely ground cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup water

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, mix together parsley, carrot, and oil.

In a large bowl, whisk together flours and baking powder. Add parsley mixture and work into flour until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add water, and mix and knead with hands until dough comes together in a smooth ball.

On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness. Using a small (2-1/2 inch) bone-shaped cookie cutter, cut out biscuits, re- rolling scraps as necessary. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake 20 minutes for softer biscuits; 30 minutes for hard.
