Spinach Green Yoda Dog Biscuits

It's about time we made some more dog treats around here.  I wanted to make little hedghogs crisps (they'll be next), but my 4 year old had another idea.  

"Mommy, can we please make Yoda cookies?!?"

How could I pass that up?  Yoda is one of my all time favorite dudes.  So we gave it a go and I'm really please with how they turned out!  Please note, these are biscuits and not cookies.  They are green and not toasty brown.  They are definitely the best dog treats in the galaxy.  

Yoda Dog Biscuits

1/2 Cup Butter
1/4 Cup Oil
1 Egg
1/2 Cup Cooked Spinach (wring out the water!)
2 Cups White Flour
1 Tbls Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda

In a blender (I used a Vitamix) pour 1/4 cup of oil and add the drained spinach.  Now, blend the star troopers out of it!!!  After 1 - 2 minutes add 1/5 of your room temperature butter.  Blend for an additional 4 minutes...I'm not kidding.  BLEND. IT.

In mixer cream the rest of the butter with the spinach mix and add 1 egg.

Mix together the white flour with the baking powder and baking soda.  

Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet mixture.  

Transfer to a lightly floured counter and knead for 1 minute.  

Roll out and cookie cutter out some Yoda shapes.  We used the Yoda from this set.

Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 10 minutes - do not over bake or your Yoda's will lose that nice green color!

These cookies pretty much take the cake on realistic touches... these Yoda treats come complete with Yoda hair and everything!

The best part is that Abby and Dewey LOVE them!  Snatched them right up!
