Cookie Dogs

The idea for tonight's snack came from The Happy Homebaker. Her cookie dogs were cuter - a little more round, and apparently crunchy. But, she used Milo, and Horlicks (powdered drink mixes, I'm guessing) in her dough, and a cereal called Koko Krunch, for the ears, none of which I had available.

So, it was back to sugar cookie dough.

With, a little baker's cocoa added into the last bit, to make brown, for the ears. It's truly amazing, how many different cookies can be made, using a combination of plain, and chocolate sugar cookie doughs.

We finished them up with chocolate sprinkle eyes, and chocolate chip noses.

And, when they came out of the oven, I was reminded almost instantly, of The Poky Little Puppy, which clearly, I'm going to have to pick up, from the library, in the morning.

It's great to be a homeschooler.

Those are way too cute, and the Poky Little Puppy would go perfectly with it.

These are really cute. I will have to keep them in mind if I do a Pokey Little Puppy week.
