Apple Mint Dog Christmas Treats

 

Ingredients:

1½ cups whole wheat flour
1 cup unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/3 cup oat bran
2 tablespoons dry milk
1 ½ teaspoons dry baking yeast
2 tablespoons chopped spearmint leaves
1/2 cup applesauce
2 teaspoons green or red powdered food coloring or spinach powder (to get the color desired)
7/8 cup water

 

Directions:
Knead the dough and let rest in a dough oven or on the counter. Roll out to 1/4 inch when ready
Using a mini bone cookie cutter, cut the dough into mini dog bone shapes.
Bake at 250 degrees F for about an hour. Check to make sure that they don’t get too brown.
Turn off the oven and let the mini dog bones dry completely in the oven—This works best overnight.

These Christmas dog treats will keep for several months, at room temperature, in a cookie jar, so you can make them well ahead of the holidays.

Easy Corn Chowder

Ingredients

6 slices bacon, cut into small strips

1 large onion, chopped

1 lb. russet potatoes, cut into small cubes

4 c. low-sodium chicken stock

2 tbsp. all-purpose flour

1/2 c. milk

3 c. corn

1/2 c. heavy cream

1 c. white Cheddar

kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1 tbsp. Chopped chives, for garnish

 

Directions

In a large pot over medium heat, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon onto a paper-towel-lined plate. Drain all but one tablespoon fat and cook the onions until translucent, about 4 minutes. Add potatoes and chicken stock and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 10 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.

When potatoes are tender, whisk flour into milk and stir into pot. Add corn, cream, cheese, and bacon and bring soup back to a boil, cooking until cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes more.

Season with salt and pepper, garnish with chives and serve.
