Cookies & Bars

Budgie Cookies!
Ok, perhaps this is going too far. I made this recipe once, in such a way that it was welcome to a wider audience. I tested it on several birds and a dog and they all liked it. This recipe originally titled Haute Doggie Biscuits. This is my modified version, for the birds. (I eliminated the liver powder, for instance!)
Preheat oven to 350° F. Combine dry ingredients, add butter and apple sauce until well blended. Add the egg and stock. Knead the dough for a few minutes. If you are adding any "goodies" (hot peppers, veggie flakes, etc.) add those now. Roll out the dough to about 1/2" thickness (sprinkle flour on table top first!) and use cookie cutters to create whatever shapes you like. Or, roll dough into thin rope, cut bits off it into treat sizes. Place cookies on oiled cookie sheet. Re-roll scraps and make more cookies. Bake biscuits for 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven, cool, store.

Note: I tried rolling some bits of dough in amaranth, the dough isn't sticky enough to hold the grain and it falls off after baking, so you are better off in mixing any seed you may want to use INTO the dough.
