Step 1: Ingredients

For 12 mini-pies

For the Pie-crust :

(g= gram for europe )
7 Oz  (200g) wholemeal flour (rye)
1,8 Oz (150g) oatmeal
1/2 cup ( 50g) wheatflour
1 egg
1 tbs hacked chives
1/2 grated Carrot
milk

Filling:
2 tbs wet Dogfood
1/2 grated carrot
1 grated potato
1 egg

variations:
Tuna
cheese
bananas
or whatever your dog loves

you'll need a bowl and a normal-sized baking tin for 12 cupcakes

Step 2: The Crust

heat your oven to 392°F

during the heating-process mix the ingredients for the crust.
add as much milk as needed to get an not-crumbling and yet  -not sticky dough.

take a golfball-sized doughball and fill the cupcake-tin with it.
-see pictures.

the left-over dough is for the top-cover.

when your done place the tin in the oven for about 10 to 15 mins ( time is not that important)

Step 3: The Filling

while the crusts are in the oven:

mix all ingredients for your filling.

maybe your dog has a taster ;) - if she's satisfied - fill the crusts.

Step 4: The Top

take the leftover - dough and add some water - it should be easy to work with it
again : it should not crumble

flatten a small amount and lay it on the crusts and press it slightly down on the edges to close the pie.

You may decorate them with a little grated cheese ( ask your dog about it)

when your done - place the pies in the oven for about 15 to 20minutes.

Step 5: Do the Dishes and Wait


Step 6: Decorate

if you like you can decorate your pies with dog-friendly treats.
i decorated a special one with banana-chips.

The pies are ment as a treat - so don't give your dog more than 2/day the left-over pies can be stored in the freezer.

Step 7: Finally!

after the pies are cool ( of course!)
they are ready to serve!

as you see on the pictures Saruman does everything for it and it's a birthday pie :)

Warning: Don't use candles unless your dog is well-trained and comfortable with it!
PS: the pies are a good way to learn your dog that trick ;).

    It is wonderful recipe thank you for sharing with us and Saruman is so cute:) I think dogs should eat healthy homemade dog food like this not the commercial ones. Commercial dog food are really unhealthy. What should dogs eat is very tough question for somebody because buying commercial dog food and giving their dogs is very easy but many of them know that this is wrong. What you should do is to prepare them healthy food. It is not that hard.

    Regularly feeding grain to an obligate carnivore is liable to produce serious health problems. If you care for your pet, you should try to limit this to occasional treats. I managed to cure my dog of crippling arthritis by removing the grain from his food.

    Dogs are classified as Opportunistic Carnivores, not Obligate Carnivores. Dogs can synthesize their own taurine.

    The point still stands: don't feed your dog on grains.

    I'll feed MY dogs what I want. I've managed to cure my dog's arthritis by feeding grains.

    Not grain. This line of conversation is ridiculous, don't you think?

    That all depends on whether you care for dogs or not. If you are concerned for their welfare, then it is important to feed them appropriately. My experience was that removing a substance from his diet cured his arthritis, whereas yours was that adding that same substance to your dogs diet also cured it. This would seem to require some sort of explanation. Were you also giving your dog lots of junk type food, table scraps, vegetables, etc ?

    Just a quick reminder-when you grate the potato, make sure to peel the skin AND the greens off first. NO exceptions. The greens are highly poisonous. For more info on doggy no-nos, go to dog treat kitchen .com. They have awesome recipes and things to not feed your dogs. By the way, I am not in any way connected to this web site at all. I am merely trying to keep your dogs safe and give a forewarning. I use this website because I happen to own a dog treat company. And yes, I am 12.

    If only I could get my dog to let a pie sit on her nose. -__- She'd just scarf it down.

    Hey there
    try to train first that the dog only eats treats on your command - thats quite easy :)
    have a treat on your opened hand/palm, every time she tries to get it without command, close your hand.
    wait until she sits nice and quiet -then allow it with a chosen word.

    Now the dog knows if he sits nice and quiet, there's a chance for the treat :)

    if that works fine even with treat is laying somewhere out of your reach then you can go to the nose- balancing part :)
    try something like a cheese-slice or sloppy bread, which doesn't fall off that easy!

    Good Luck!

    You have a very handsome dog. I like this idea. I can't treat my poor dog with it though, as she is stuck on a very boring diet of hypoallergenic hydrolyzed protein (yuck) until we can figure out to what she is allergic.

    Thank you!

    Saruman is a swedish breed called "Jämthund" (you can google it)
    it's a moose and bear hunting dog.
    they learn quick so it's very easy to train them.
    Australian cattle dogs look very nice ( just googled it =) )
