Puppy Pretzels: A Nice Treat for Winter Days
by K-9 Health Solutions on Thursday February 04, 2010.
Have you ever wanted to give your pet some of your hot cocoa while you’re curling up on a winter’s day? Well, hot chocolate isn’t great for your pet, but there is indeed something you can treat him with when you’re both watching the snow fall outside. Puppy pretzels are an easy to make and hearty treat that any dog will love and can be a great comfort food when the weather outside gets frightful. Try out this yummy recipe the next time you’re expecting a snow day.
1 teaspoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
2/3 cup water
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3 tablespoons soy flour, low fat
1/4 cup nonfat dry milk
1 tablespoon dried liver powder
1 tablespoon bone meal flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg – beaten, divided (1/2 in recipe, 1/2 in glaze)
2 tablespoons cooking oil
3 tablespoons wheat germ
First, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Then, in a separate bowl, combine the rest of the dry ingredients. To the dry ingredients, add half of the beaten egg, oil, and then the yeast mixture. Mix well until a dough forms.
Remove dough from bowl and knead on a well-floured surface until the dough is firm. Add dough to an oiled bowl, cover, and let rise until it nearly doubles in size. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. After the dough has risen, roll out and shape into pretzels. Place the pretzels on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and brush them with the remainder of the beaten egg. Sprinkle with wheat germ. Return to oven and bake at 300 degrees for about 15 minutes or until they are nicely browned and firm.
