Fortune Cookies (I see a nap in your future)

Fortune Cookie Dog Treat/Biscuit Recipe
I ordered a nifty set of Moo mini-cards to look and read like the ‘Confucius Say’ joke fortunes (I’ve even got lucky numbers on the back) so I had to make some doggy fortune cookies to hand out with them.
Maybe one day you’ll meet me on the street, covered in flour and dog drool, and I’ll shove a cookie in your hand and beg you to visit my site!

    I didn’t put a fortune in the cookies, I could see that ending in a trip to the Vet’s office for many dogs! :)

    Great recipe. My dog likes them. But, he really loves the taste of almonds. Loves the fortune cookies you get from take out. I’ve found a recipe for biscuits using almond butter. He likes it, but runs hot and cold with them. I was baking for the holidays today using almond paste. He loved the smell of the paste. I’d like to use it in a recipe to make treats for him, but I cant find anything on the internet to confirm whether it is safe. Do you know if almond paste is safe for dogs?

    I’m not really familiar with almond paste but when I looked it up it seems like it contains a lot of sugar and corn syrup which is good to keep away from dogs but according to the ASPCA (who I go to for all my food questions!) almonds themselves are okay for doggies.
    “The good news is that there is currently no data indicating that almonds (Prunus dulcis) are toxic to animals.
    They can, however, cause stomach upset if eaten in large quantities. All nuts contain fats, which can lead to gastrointestinal upset, such as vomiting and diarrhea. Foods with high fat contents can also potentially produce an inflammatory condition of the pancreas known as pancreatitis.” (http://www.aspca.org/Pet-care/ask-the-expert/ask-the-expert-poison-control/almonds)
    So the sugar in almond paste looks like a reason to keep it away from you pups. Woof!
