Sweet Tater Dog Treats

What is it with Mother Nature that she hands us 5 gorgeous, sunny days in a row ~ all the while I'm working. Then we get high winds and rain to ruin weekend plans??

With the winds nearly blowing the doors off the hinges, I shifted gears, deciding to bake up a special treat for the great love of my life: Bad Dog.  Have you ever given your puppy sweet potatoes? Mine goes absolutely ga-ga over them! And, that is the basis of this very simple recipe.

Kickin back... watchin' Animal Planet. (And waiting for the cookies to be done!)
Sweet Tater Dog Treats for Puppy
Bake 2 large sweet potatoes, or yams, remove the peelings and cool. (You can save time by nuking them, but they don't taste as good.)
  1. Grab a great, big bowl.
  2. Toss in the baked sweet taters.
  3. Add 4 eggs.
  4. 1/2 cup applesauce.
  5. 2 1/2 cups of flour. (You may need a little less if you are baking at lower altitudes.)

Shmoosh this mess altogether. Roll the dough quite thin ~ about 1/4 inch. Grab your favorite cookie cutter and have at it! Bake @ 350 (F) until the edges of the cookies begin to turn brown. About 45 minutes. :)
