So, yesterday as I was baking the decadent white chocolate and cranberry dog treats they smelled so good I wanted to eat one myself. Needless to say, I did indeed try one and while it wasn’t “bad” it certainly wasn’t for the human palette either. I wanted to prove my husband wrong as well when he said that he didn’t know if it would taste good; i.e. his skepticism was showing. So, tonight while he was at an appt I went ahead and baked up a batch of these for the humans of the world!
Braewyn, my 18 month old daughter helped. And by help I mean she watched and oohed and aaah’d at the mixture while throwing cranberries in for me. I found these much quicker to make than dog cookies; probably because I didn’t have to roll and cut anything else, I simply dropped them on the baking sheet.
Needless to say these cookies were indeed absolutely delicious! In case you’re wondering, no…the test kitchen isn’t about to switch business and go for the human kind. I just wanted to share with you this recipe inspired by the dog treat so you can try it at home yourself.
Oh and Blizzard was VERY upset with me. He’s still pacing the baking area wondering where his delicious freshly baked treats are. He knows I baked something and when I bake (up until today) I ONLY bake for him. Talk about a bent out of shape fuzz-face! As I write this I’m trying one out and Blizzard is all eyes on me and pacing. Silly dog!
