One way to guarantee that you won't snack on what you're baking? Bake something for your pet! There's nothing like a little tuna in the dough to keep you from licking the spoon :) My pet rescue group often participates in local craft fairs for fundraising. We always have tons of goodies for dogs - bandannas, homemade dog cookies, toys, etc. - but rarely anything for the cats. So for an upcoming craft show I decided to make some cat treats for our table. This recipe came from SimplyPets.com. There were many cat treat recipes on the Internet, but I chose this one because it was quick, required only 3 ingredients and called for tuna. What cat can resist tuna? So go ahead and treat your kitty to these crunchy snacks - and let HIM lick the bowl!
6 ounces (1 can) undrained tuna packed in water
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. (I used non-stick cookie sheets and just stirred the treats occasionally while they baked rather than greasing the pans - they came out fine.) Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden. Let cool.
These treats are Roger approved ;)
