Alaskan Mutt Muffins
This makes a small batch-double or triple if you like. I give these out at Christmastime, clearly marked for doggies or kitties.
1 1/2 cup wheat flour
1 cup white flour
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3 Tablespoons Dark Molasses
1 teaspoon of beef bouillon
1/2 teaspoon bone meal
1/2 cups cornmeal
2 Tablespoon used fat- bacon fat, lard, butter or oleo. Do not use oil.
3 Tablespoons of liquid drained off canned salmon, OR *
3 Tablespoons of cheap tuna in a can.
1 to 1-1/2 cups warm water. Dough should be pliable and not sticky.
Roll out 3/4 inch thick, on floured counter and cut into doggie bone shapes or in oval or small round shapes for kitties. Bake at 350 degree for 15-20 minutes, until they lose the shininess. Cool completely. Package in small baggies with two or three holes punched in bag. Tie and make cute labels. Because they do not have preservatives in them, keep stored in refrigerator on in a cool-cold place.
*Actually one pint of canned salmon goes a long way, if you want to part with one jar!! OR Save all your salmon skin and scraps and freeze until you need them for this recipe.
And now you know all my secrets!
Raisin, Spice, Oatmeal Cookies
Grandma hand wrote her recipes on a ruled recipe card and never wasted a space. I am going to copy this like she did.
Raisin, Spice, Oatmeal Cookies: 1 cup flour,1/2tsp soda,1/2tsp salt,1tsp cinnamon,1/2 tsp nutmeg.Mix all together. 1/2 cup soft shortening (she used lard) 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup granulated sugar,1 egg,2 Tblsp milk,1 cup raisins, 2 cups oatmeal. Mix. Drop by tsp.full on greased cookie sheet.Bake in 375 degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes.
My note: So good with a tinge of “coal oil” — kerosene — taste from her coal oil stove. Always had to have a glass of milk with her cookies. Grandpa slurped and smiled and so did we.
2 can of whole kernel corn-drain
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
2 cups flour
Mix all together.
Batter should be thick. If necessary add more flour.
Drop by tsp into hot fat. Cook 2 to 3 minutes.
Serve this with butter and maple syrup.
My note: Sometimes I add diced red,green bell pepper, jalapeño, onion.
