Beryles ‘o Bacon Cookies

A couple of weeks ago fellow blogger, Puglet over at The Daily Puglet sent out a challenge for no-recipe dog cookie recipe submissions. He will compile all the submitted recipes into an online book for download. This should be available either April 1st or early the next week.

What is a no-recipe recipe you ask? Pretty well what it sound like. Rather than use a bunch of specific measurements, the no-recipe recipe should consist of -ishes measurements – a cup-ish of this, a handful of that. The second part of the challenge was to make cookies with ingredients that are on hand, with one special purchase to complete it if needed.

This recipe was created as an attempt to make some super good-for-you cookies actually be edible. In attempts to control my spring shedding, mum had bought me a bag of Zinpro Wild Salmon cookies that are loaded with Zinc. The only problem is the cookies offend my delicate puggy sensibilities. No way I’m eating them.

Enter Puglet’s challenge and the original cookies are given the opportunity to transform into something awesome.

Here are the ingredients involved:
The special item that was purchased was bacon. Of course, the humans decided to have the bacon for dinner, so it could actually be counted as food in the kitchen. Or maybe the humans are just taking advantage of an opportunity to eat My bacon.

Instructions for Beryles ‘o Bacon Cookies:
1/2 the bag of cookies, one egg, a couple heaping tablespoons of peanut butter and 3 slices of bacon went into the food processor. All of which was blended until crumbly. A dollop of bacon fat and blended in. Water was drizzled into the running processor until the concoction formed a slightly sticky dough – about 1/4-ish cup, maybe a bit less.

The dough was scooped by a teaspoon, rolled into balls and mashed down with a fork to form flattish cookies. They were then cooked at 350 for 15 minutes. The oven was turned off and the cookies were left in there for a couple more hours. This ensures all the moisture is removed from the cookies.

Verdict? Peanut butter and bacon make the world go ’round. These re-jigged cookies makes good-for-you taste sinful.



About Sabrina's Pug Tails

My name is Sabrina. I am a three year old fawn pug who lives with my three humans and my brother-cat Shinobi. I came to live with my family in February of 2010. I don’t remember much about my life before that. I know that I didn’t have a nice warm bed to sleep in or soft couches to lay on. I was rescued from my previous life by the Boston Terrier & Pug Rescue of Southern Manitoba along with my brother, sister and mom. My human mum tells me that some dogs work at being smart and some work at being cute, and I am very, very cute. I think there may be some kind of insult here………

    Wow! They do sound like pug Kryptonite, Sabrina. We are not nearly as fancy at our house – Phil, Max and Malo would eat just about anything I fed them, filled with zinc or not!

  2. Hi Sabrina.
    I too am developing a recipe for Puglet’s challenge. Since my Mommys are vegetarians, I don’t get anything as yummy as I THINK bacon is. But I know Mommy #2 is a super cook and I know my treat recipe will be DA BOMB (and NOT a bomb).
    Love Noodles

    You know humans get excited about anything, I find. My Mom’s new deal is making Starbuck’s Baskets for different Rescues so they can raise money for vetting and other needs they may have. She loves doing it but it can get expensive. Now, I tried to tell her that but she said that she likes doing dog things. It is a good thing I am here to control her . I am lucky she likes us so much. I am still her “Special” one and that is why I am here. Alfie

  4. Oooohhh…bacon makes everything taste good! Good luck on your submission!!

    Hi – I came across your blog on the Wednesday blog hop and have been enjoying reading your past posts. : )

    What a great idea for repackaging those less-than-popular treats! I also like the idea of a recipe where you don’t really have to measure anything out. Now I have to go check out the results of the no-recipe contest on The Daily Puglet . . .
