Apple Cookies for Dogs

Ingredients:

1 Tsp Vanilla
1 Egg
1 Fuji Apple (peeled, cored and finely grated)
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Tbsp Milk
1 Tsp Brown Sugar
1 Tsp Cinnamon
3 Cups All Purpose Flour

Directions:

1. Grate the Fuji apple into a large bowl.

2. Add vanilla, egg, olive oil and milk.

3. In a separate bowl, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon and flour.

4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until completely mixed (you want it to form a stiff ball of dough). You may need to adjust the amount of milk to get the right consistency.

5. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface until it is approximately 1/4 inch thick.

6. Cut into cute shapes with the cookie cutter of your choice and bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

For a softer cookie, remove immediately, cool, then refrigerate in an air tight container. For a crisp cookie, turn off the oven and leave the cookies in it for an hour or two before refrigerating in an air tight container.
