I didn't like the original recipe at all!! the texture was almost impossible to really work into any shapes! I basically changed the whole recipe. I did two jars or baby food, 1/4 cup warm water and about 1/2 a cup of wheat flower until it became a dough. As far as the treat, my puppy loved it once I changed it. He didn't like the original with cream of wheat and milk powder.

the first time imade this it was way too soft, but the second time I used one jar of food to the 1/4 cup measurements & that worked out fine, My neice & nephew love to make this for their dog & he LOVES them! We put the mix in a baggie & pipe out logs of the dough( it is soft) & then slice them into bites(he's a small dog)

I haven't made these yet, but I have a question! Is the Cream of
Wheat supposed to be raw or cooked?

The recipe mixture was a little loose so I added some dry ingredients. I also used the drop method because I couldn't roll it into balls. The up side is that I used turkey and sweet potatoe baby food which my dogs went crazy over. The cookies drops were fine and they loved it!

I definitely agree with the other two comments. I was not happy with the consistency with this recipe. I was looking for something quick and simple and with things i thought my dogs would like and i thought i found it with this recipe. GUESS NOT!!

I agree with the first comment. I've seen this recipe verbatim on other sites too. The recipe is clearly not correct. I more than quadrupled the amounts of powdered milk and farina and still did not have a consistency that could be rolled into balls. I made a drop style cookie instead. I picked this recipe because it was easy and had few and easy to find ingredients. I should have known it was too good to be true. We'll see if the dogs like it, but I'm not impressed at all.

There was way too much moisture in the recipe. I added a lot more of the dry ingredients. Just didn't turn out well at all.
