  • 1 4-ounce jar of baby food

Preheat oven to 350º

  • In a large bowl, mix one cup of flour with the jar of baby food and stir to combine.
  • Add more flour and knead your dough until it’s no longer sticky.
  • Roll out your dough on a floured surface and cut out treats, placing them on a cookie sheet.

For an extra-crisp cookie, turn off the oven when cookies are done, but leave them to cool inside the oven to remove any excess moisture.
