I've been baking for Pierre and all the dogs that visit The Boulevard Market this week, and this recipe is super cute and Pierre loves them! It's a baked Cinnamon Bun for dogs.
Pierre likes a softer treat, so these were super fun and easy and stayed a little soft after baking. This yields about 24 small-ish treats. While the photo shows the entire batch of dough rolled out into one rectangle, half way through, I cut the rectangle in half length-wise or the buns would have been huge. Great for a big dog, but WAY too much for my terrier! My rolls ended up measuring abut 2 inches across. These were super easy and fun to make! You will want to refrigerate them for up to 3 weeks, or toss them in the freezer for up to 3 months.
PUP CINNAMON BUNS
1/2 cup cornmeal
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2/3 cup chicken stock
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 egg, separated
Stir filling ingredients to combine. Beat the reserved egg white and set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until combined. Knead until a soft, shiny dough forms,picking up all bits of flour, about 3 minutes. Divide dough in half.
Roll dough out 1/3 inch thick, on a parchment paper into a square about 6X6. Spread with filling and roll up into a log. Cut log into 1/2-3/4 inch thick slices and lay them flat on a parchment lined baking sheet. Repeat with other half of dough. Brush rolls with beaten egg white and bake for 30 minutes.
You could add a drizzle of frosting, yogurt or leave shiny and plain!
