Add enough water, mixing continuously, until you get a thick, doughy consistency.

Lightly flour a surface. Roll the cookie dough out to create a 1/4 inch thick sheet.

Use a cookie cutter to cut shapes. Place the cookies onto a greased baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes.

    I have two spoiled rotten little dogs. I’ve printed these recipes. Since I have two sweet potatoes that have been sitting too long on my counter, maybe I’ll eat one and fix the other for them. Thanks for the idea.
