Monday's Homebaked Thrills!

Arrrooo rooo there good furry and fur-less readers,

Just when we thought - while savouring all those yummy smells emanating from the kitchen all day, wishing we could have some morsel share in human food. Yes, we did put on our saddest 'poor-me-expression with hopes wrangling ourselves some tasteful treats'... the Chief went on to surprise us with carob star cookies, made with the carob Suzuki's mommy so kindly sent from Australia.

The end result

Wooo! We'll let the pictures tell you what we thought about our carob star cookies.

BIG SMILES... & ...

...Paws up for cookies!

Like all good things, the Chief says must be shared (though this TOP DOG here would rather have all the cookies for himself!)!
So here be the very simple recipe of our yummy cookies.

1. 340g flour (can be mixed with wholemeal for more wholesome-ness)
2. 210g butter
3. a table spoon of lemon juice
4. some cold water to combine
5. carob buttons (which can be substituted with either bacon, liver, sausage - anything of pup's choice!)

Method :

Rub in butter (#2) into flour until resemble bread crumbs. Add in lemon juice and cold water until form dough. Leave to stand for 20 mins

Roll out dough and use cookie cutter to cut into shape (The Chief only had 'Star' cookie cutter). And stick carob buttons in middle of star. Bake at 150-180 C for 20 minutes.
