My sister has become obsessed with agility training for her 2 English Cocker Spaniels. She likes to give them something special after a hard workout. So for all the dog lovers in and around Cambridge, NY, my sister sends this recipe for homemade dog treats.


2 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
3 Tbsp. canola oil
6 Tbsp. honey
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup unsalted peanuts, chopped


1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a baking sheet with non-stick spray.

2. Stir together the flour and baking powder in a large bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together the oil and honey until well blended. Add the eggs, one at a time and then the vanilla, stirring to combine.

3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir to form a smooth dough, Mix in the peanuts

4. Divide the dough in half and form each half into a log, about 12" long and 4" wide.

5. Place the logs on the baking sheet and bake 14-16 minutes or until golden brown.

6. Transfer the logs to a cutting board and cool for 5 minutes. Slice at a 45 degree angle, about 1/2" thick. Place the slices on the baking sheet and bake for an additional 10-12 minutes to slightly dry.

7. Transfer biscotti to wire racks to cool. Once cool, store in an airtight continer for up to one week or in the freezer for up to 2 months.

Yields: 4 dozen biscotti
