This recipe was found in Tasty Treats for Demanding Dogs by Gregg R. Gillespie. I made this recipe because it was a lower carb, higher protein treat.

You get 6 votes of a 5 star review from my gang. The baby pups loved these. The only one of the 6 that hesitated was Betty, but once she saw the others eat their treats, she gobbled it down. I'll have to keep these on hand for a special treat. Thanks for sharing and my 6 dogs thank you for posting.
