00:00 Tennille: Welcome to Treat Your Dog, a baking podcast presented by Doggy Dessert Chef. Each week, you can bake along with us and make tasty homemade treats for your pups.
00:09 Tennille and Derk: Let’s treat your dog.
00:13 Tennille: Hi, hi, it’s Tennille, and we’re gonna be baking some cheese and parsley treats this week. This recipe only uses four ingredients and you may already have them on hand. You’ll need half a cup of fresh parsley, chopped. If you don’t have fresh parsley, you can substitute dried, and use a little under a fourth of a cup. I’m lucky that I have an herb garden and I grow my own parsley. Herb garden should actually sound like it’s in quotes because it’s actually a couple of pots in front of my apartment. I’ll share a photo on the Treat Your Dog Facebook group page so you can see what I’m talking about. You also need half a cup of shredded cheese, any type of cheese your dog enjoys. I’ve made this with cheddar cheese, made this with mozzarella cheese, and the dogs have enjoyed it just the same. Half a cup of milk and a cup of brown rice flour. You also wanna prepare your baking sheet. Line it with parchment paper, foil, or a silicone baking mat, set it to the side, and then preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
01:08 Tennille: So you’re gonna wanna mix all your ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. That parsley, shredded cheese, milk, brown rice flour, and then stir it until it’s well combined. Once it’s completely mixed together, you’re going to knead it into a ball, and roll it out a fourth of an inch thick onto a well-floured surface, and then cut it with a cookie cutter of your choice. Once it’s all cut out, bake it for 10-15 minutes, until the treats are lightly browned at the edges. So I’m gonna give you a chance to get everything cut out, and baked up, and we’ll be back.
01:48 Tennille: Treats are ready and the dogs are ready to eat them. But you’re gonna wanna let them cool before you feed them. Any leftovers, you’re gonna wanna refrigerate. I used about an inch and a half-sized bone cookie cutter, and I ended up with about two and a half dozen treats. Any leftovers you have, make sure you throw them in the fridge. There’ll be a link to this recipe in the comment. Come back next week for another tasty treat recipe. Happy baking.
02:14 Tennille: All these recipes have been carefully researched, but we cannot rule out the possibility of food intolerances, and it is essential that you speak with your veterinarian before feeding your dog any homemade treats.
