"These are so good that we even eat them...ok...maybe just one, because after all they really are for the pooches. You can cut them however you like. I make mine 1/4" thick and bake them for 15 these are for my wee fur babies."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Line rimless baking sheet with parchment paper or grease. Set aside.

Step 2

In bowl, whisk together the flours, oats, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt.

Step 3

In separate bowl, beat butter with peanut butter; beat in eggs, 1 at a time.

Step 4

Stir in flour mixture, mint and parsley to make a soft dough.

Step 5

Divide in half; wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. (Make ahead and refrigerate for up to 2 days).

Step 6

On lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/2" thickness.

Step 7

Use a cookie cutter of your choice. I use a small 2" round or star cutter because I have 3 small dogs.

Step 8

Arrange on prepared sheets.

Step 9

Bake 325 degrees until golden and firm -- about 35 - 40 minutes. But I found that for our altitude -- 1/4" thick...15-20 minutes does the trick for us.

Step 10

Transfer to rack; let cool.

Step 11

Store in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

Step 12

**The serving size is dependent on thickness you cut the dough and the size of the cookie cutter you use.

This was a tag team effort between my husband and me. I used all purpose flour and substituted bread crumbs for the cornmeal. I just had to add some extra water. They turned out fine. I left them in the oven about thirty minutes. It was a last hurrah for my mint plant for the year. My dogs said thanks and that they'll be looking forward to more!

Very easy to make and much cheaper than buying the Breath Busters at the pet stores!! They must be tasty as my little poochy just about bit my fingers off when I was trying to snap the picture. Bosco says Woof..... Made for the Billboard Recipe Tag game.
