Does anybody have a recipe for some dog biscuits that you can put some kind of dog friendly icing or yogurt or cream cheese or something on? I have a basic dog biscuit recipe, but what do you dogsters have in your recipe books?

If you can roll- in the dirt, do- it!

You could take your basic dog bones and frost them with green or red tinted cream cheese. It would take a LOT of food coloring to make them red but maybe not so much to make them green.
Or you could find a cutter for human cookies and make the dog biscuits with them. I am not much for this sort of thing but for the right person sounds like fun.

Here is a recipe I have for making a dough you can cut out with cookie cutters, so you could use Christmas ones.

Mix together 1 C. whole wheat flour, 1/2 c. white flour, 1/4 c. cornmeal, 1/2c. oatmeal, 1/2 c. dry nonfat milk, 1/4c. grated cheese.

Add 1/3 c. oil and mix well with a fork. Then add 2-3 jars meat baby food and 1 egg. Knead the dough with your hands then roll out on a wax-papered covered surface. Use white flour to prevent sticking to your hands, rolling pin, and wax paper. Cut out dough and put the cookies on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on low power (30%-40%) for 3-4 minutes or until fairly dried out.

You could also 'ice' these cookies. What about using that Kong stuffin' that comes in a can??

Online, I found a sweet candy cane dog treat recipe. Basically unhealthy though, so I made an overhaul and now it is dog friendly. The usual change: Substituted the all purpose flour (!!!) with a mixture of alternative source flours (whatever was available in the pantry), subʻd regular bouillon (usually high salt, MSG, and fat) with water or homemade no salt broth, subʻd peppermint oil or extract with fresh, finely chopped mint and parsley.
Also made gingerbread cookies with my regular vegan recipe but reduced the sweetness and stuck with the alternative flours. Easy peasy.
