Bone Turks*

Waiting for the Bone Turks to come out of the oven
From the Kitchen of Lainey, Emma, and Weetzie Zee

4 cups of flour, some may be whole wheat
1 tsp. salt
½ cup corn meal
4 eggs
¼ cup molasses
¼ cup olive oil or leftover bacon fat, depending on how your dog feels about cholesterol
Enough milk to make a stiff dough

Optional: ¼ cup peanut butter

Mix all ingredients together.
Knead a bit on a very slightly floured board.
Form into a long roll.
Flatten to about ½ inch thick.
Cut crossways into strips, and then cut each strip into small pieces.
Put pieces on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375° for 25 minutes.
Turn off oven but leave cookie sheets in until oven cools so that the bone turks will harden.

Store in a covered jar and use as rewards for very good dogs. Or dogs who are at least trying to be good. Or dogs who you love very much who may have no idea about the concept of “good.”

*You’ll have to ask Beez about the origin of the name Bone Turks. I really have no idea how he comes up with these things.
