Today marks the Chinese New Year as we welcome in the year of the dragon. It’s been a while since I made Arie some treats, so I decided to put a fun twist on it: Let’s make fortune cookie treats for the new year! Fortunately, someone had already had that creative genius . The Doggy Dessert Chef had a recipe and a game plan ready for use! I put to to the test tonight in the kitchen.
You’re going to need whole wheat flower, two eggs, chicken broth, butter, and baking powder.
Get your ingredients ready to mix. You’ll need a cup of butter, 3 and 1/2 cups flower, 1/2 cup chicken broth, and 1/2 tsp. baking powder.
You’re ready to make the cookies!
I love my rolling pin. It’s so much better than the empty wine bottle I used to use (no joke).
Okay okay, so the inspiration cookie isn’t an actual step. Still, I did find that having this cookie (preserved from the Chinese we ordered a few nights ago) was helpful, even though the Doggy Dessert Chef’s directions were simple and easy to follow. Also, who doesn’t love fortune cookies? This little baby was set to be my reward while the pet-friendly ones were in the oven.
While the cookies baked, I wondered if Arie would enjoy them as much as she was thinking she would. My inspiration cookie had the answer.
The cookies cooled after coming out of the oven. While not as pretty as the Doggy Dessert Chef’s, I still think they were a valiant effort.
Answer to my question and the smart ass fortune? Arie loves the treats. This is a recipe I have to use every Chinese New Year, otherwise there might be a strike on White German Shepherd cuteness in my apartment. Happy New Year everyone!
