|Here's some frosting recipes for dogger cookies and also some helpful hints with exchanges...
(We use coconut oil in place of the other oils)
This icing can be colored naturally for decorating:
· For pink icing - use beet powder
· For green icing - use spinach powder
· For yellow icing - use turmeric
3 cups yogurt chips (NOTE: These can be hard to find! The only place I've been able to find them is online, at: Barry Farm. I'm still looking for someone who sells yogurt chips that are not made with sugar or partially hydrogenated oils.)
1 tablespoon vegetable powder for coloring (see above)
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
Melt carob chips and add vegetable oil and colorings. Dip cookies halfway in icing, or use a pastry brush to cover, and place cookies on waxed paper to dry.
The Following Icing Recipes Require Refrigeration

Tips for Substituting Wheat and Corn in Recipes:
Wheat flour substitutes will take longer (10-20 minutes) to bake. Best results are produced when substitutes are used in combination. Experimentation is a good thing! See what works for you.
The addition of 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder per cup of nonwheat flour improves the texture of the baked goods.
Most wheat-free baked goods will crumble, so making foods in smaller sizes helps retain shape and body.
To substitute one cup of wheat flour, use any one of these suggestions:
1 1/4 cup rye or oat flour
3/4 cup rice, barley, or potato flour or oats
For dogs not allergic to corn: 1/2 cup arrowroot flour, corn starch, or ground nuts and seeds.
To thicken a recipe or to hold ingredients together, substitute for 1 tablespoon of wheat flour one of the following:
1/2 tablespoon cornstarch, potato starch or rice flour
1 tablespoon arrowroot or oatmeal
2 teaspoons quick-cooking tapioca
