My kids have been invited to a birthday party … for a dog. Yep, you read that right. For a dog! I’d better be careful how much sarcasm I put in there. I would have totally done that for my dogs when they were alive. They were my first babies and I spoiled them rotten. Here is a picture of Daisy… too cute, right?
So after I was done giggling I knew my kids and I had to make Lulu (that’s the birthday dog’s name) some homemade cookies. And when I saw these I knew they were the ones. I mean really! Snickerpoodles! How cute is that?!?!
* 1/2 cup vegetable oil
* 1/2 cup shortening
* 1 cup honey
* 2 eggs
* 3 3/4 cup white flour
* 2 tsp. cream of tartar
* 1 tsp. baking soda
* 1/2 cup corn meal
* 2 tsp. cinnamon
Mix vegetable oil, shortening, honey and egg. Mix well. Add flour, soda and cream of tartar. Knead dough until well mixed.
Shape into 1 inch balls.
Mix the cornmeal and cinnamon together and roll balls to coat.
Place 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet and gently press each ball down. My daughter did this part. Can you tell? =o)
Bake in a 400 degree oven for 8 – 10 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack and store in an air tight container.
Cute right? They look a lot like actual cookies so make sure you label the container =o) But I guess if you ate one, it wouldn’t hurt you.
We can’t wait to give them to Lulu. We wrapped them up pretty in a celo bag and tied a ribbon around it. Presentation is everything, right?
