Cheesy Sandwiches

It’s been a little while since I’ve tried a new recipe.  With the addition of Hooch to our family, I haven’t had much free time to experiment.  This recipe has been on my “must-try” list for quite some time.  I was glad I found the time to try it – – Cello LOVES these treats!

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups organic buckwheat flour
  • 2 cups organic cheddar cheese produced without added hormones, grated
  • 2/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten (I use cage-free brown)
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened organic applesauce

Cheese & Peanut Butter Filling:

  • 8 ounces of cream cheese, fat free
  • 1/2 cup organic all-natural peanut butter, creamy or chunky (so salt added)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cheddar and Parmesan cheeses.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the two eggs together.
  4. Stir in the extra virgin olive oil and applesauce.
  5. Make a well in the dry ingredients.
  6. Pour the applesauce mixture into the dry ingredients and stir, using a fork, until a dough forms.
  7. Lightly spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  8. Using a tablespoon sized cookie scooper, pack the cheesy mixture into the scoop.
  9. Place the scoops on the baking sheet close together, as they do not raise in the oven.
  10. Bake for 18 minutes. Leave the dog treats in the oven, once it’s turned off, to cool.
  11. If using the cheese dip to create a cheese sandwich, flatten the rounded cookie and bake for 15 minutes.

Filling Instructions:

  1. In a microwave safe bowl, measure out the cream cheese and peanut butter
  2. Microwave the ingredients at 10 second intervals, and stir after each one, until the mixture comes together easily.
  3. Use a butter knife to spread the filling
  4. Or, scoop the cheese mixture into a zip lock bag and seal. Cut off the tip and squeeze mixture out like a thick frosting.

Storing – This dog biscuit recipe will keep fresh in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Freeze them for up to 6 months.
