yoghurt-drop cookies Makes:

12 servings  
Difficulty:

Very easy  
Time:

15 minutes  
Description: Festive little yoghurt-drop cookies for ratties and other rodents.
  • 1 cup wheat flour
  • Tbsp baking powder
  • cup yogie chips (could substitute with carob chips as well)
  • cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
  • cup milk (any kind works, can alter depending on what you have on hand, etc)
  • 1 large egg
  • cup water
  • 1 Tbsp honey

Preheat oven to 375* F

Mix wheat flour, baking powder, peanut butter, milk, egg, water, and honey in a mixing bowl and beat until smooth.

Add yogies and mix well.

Scoop out tablespoon sized globs and roll in hands into a 1.5 inch diameter ball. If too sticky, add a bit more flour, if too crumbly, add a little bit more water or milk.

Put dough balls evenly spaced on an ungreased cookie sheet and lightly press down with a fork to create criss-cross pattern.

Put in oven on middle rack for 12-15 minutes or until done.

Let sit for 1 minute and then put on cooling rack.

Break into smaller pieces for individual ratties and store remainders in an airtight tub.

You can freeze extras to make them last longer.
