A colleague at work recently provided me with a recipe for dog cookies. It is very simple to make. It is based on tuna for protein and flavouring. When I first read the ingredient list I thought these dog cookies could easily become savoury crackers. I didn't use the best quality tuna in that I used light solid tuna in water. I made likely 5 dozen cookies as I rolled them out thinly. Both the dog and I like these cookies. I did some sampling along with the dog after they came out of the oven. We both thoroughly enjoyed them. For the next batch that I make, I might half the ingredients and make less cookies. If I was making them as savoury crackers, I would add herbs and roll them out very thinly.

1 - 8 oz tin tuna in water, drained
2 cups cornmeal
2 cups flour
3/4 cup water
2/3 cup oil
1/2 tsp salt
Using a mix master or food processor, add all of the ingredients into the bowl and mix on a slow speed for several minutes. If it is too dry or not binding, add a little bit of water and continuing mixing for another minute. The mixture should resemble dough. Roll out in the cookie pan to 1/4 or 1/2 inch thickness. Score the dough into rectangular squares. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool in the pan. Makes at least 3 dozen cookies. Store them in the fridge.
