With Thanks to E.Rabbit

For those of you who have asked for the recipe for the bisscotties...Here is most of what my sissie posted.

The recipe comes from the Rachel Ray feeds your pets site, and originally had carob chips in it, but E.Rabbit did not have carob chips on hand, so she modified the recipe to make. . . .George's Peanut Butter Pug-scotti

You will need: milk, whole wheat flour, chunky peanut butter, baking powder, and cinnamon. You start off by taking all the dry ingredients and combining them in a bowl.In another bowl, microwave about a cup of peanut butter for 5-10 seconds, just so it gets soft. Whisk in a cup of milk. This is going to take some doing -- the peanut butter was pretty stubborn, and didn't break down without a fight.

Then you add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and mix them together. You're probably going to have to get in there with your hands, and you're going to get dough under your fingernails. Don't eat it. I know it sounds like it's just flour and peanut butter, and it'll be fine, but it's completely unsweetened and pretty gag-worthy.

Take that ball of dough and shape it into a long, flat log. Yes, I know that making something into a long, flat log sounds horribly unappetizing. Sadly, that's pretty much the way every biscotti recipe describes it, and that's what it is. And then you bake it for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.

Take it out, and then let it cool for 10 minutes. Then cut it into one inch slices on an angle, put them back on the baking sheet, and bake them for another 10-12 minutes.

Pop those suckers out and let them cool completely so your dog doesn't burn his or her tongue. And for god's sake, if you're going to try a piece yourself, don't do it now. Because if you do, twenty minutes later you'll find yourself thinking "maybe they're not so awful when they're scorching hot." But they are.

For humans, that is.

Here is the original recipe for anydoggie who wants it: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/food-network-specials/peanut-carob-isabooscotti-recipe/index.html

You're supposed to melt the carob and dip the biscotti in it, but a) we didn't have carob, and b) George was in no mood to wait for that extra step before eating his pug-scotti.

Gussie we're in Sterling which is about 20 miles NW of Dee See, right close to the Dulles Airport. Richmond's a 2 hour drive, but we come down to Fredericksburg now and then to show at the new soccer center. Maybe we can get together there sometime!
