Foodie Friday: Kitty Treats (Cookies)

This week's recipe is for cats. If you want to make this for St. Patrick's Day, use some green food coloring and a shamrock cookie cutter.

Kitty Treats
(from Ann Clark)
Note: Can be made with or without catnip
Contains milk.

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup white flour
2 Tb. wheat germ
1/3 cup powdered milk
1 tsp. catnip
Gradually add:
2 eggs
1/3 cup milk
4 Tb. vegetable oil

Mix until all ingredients are well blended. Don't be afraid to use your hands. If a little too dry, add more milk. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Pat to 1/2 inch thickness on a floured board. Cut using your favorite Ann Clark Cookie Cutters. Bake 25 minutes. Allow to cool and harden. Store in tins or storage bags.
Yield: 12 large shapes or 24-36 small shapes.

Don't forget, Chef Skylar's Saturday Sit-Down Dinner is tomorrow starting at 4 pm Pacific time. It will be a St. Patty's Day feast!

I've heard of dog treats but never kitty treats. Does anone have a mouse cookie cutter? Or a bird? Neat idea!

This makes me miss my kitties! They loved and adored catnip and would bite you if you tried to take their catnip mice from them when they were in one of their kitty zoned states. Oh, how they would have enjoyed these. I'll have to remember this for my kitty nieces and nephews.

Thanks for sharing...

Happy Foodie Friday and St. Paddy's Day! (I was thinking that you could cut these with a leprechaun cookie cutter, and they would be so cute)!

yum yum yum! I can't wait to see your pictures tonight. I'm sure you will do a great job. How can you go wrong with a rock-n-roll theme? Easy, you can't!

(of course i may be a little prejudiced toward rock-n-roll being named Hendrix and all...)

I've never heard of homemade kitty treats! Mom says she is too lazy to make them, so if you have any extra, you can send them my way!
