Cheesey Dog Treats

Yesterday was Rocco's 4th birthday and I made a batch of treats to celebrate.

Makes 4 to 5 dozen (depending on size and thickness)
1 1/2 cups  wheat flour
1 cup (135 grams) rolled oats
1/2 cup cornmeal
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup shredded parmesan, or similar cheese
2 eggs
3/4 cup water or chicken broth

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all of the dry ingredients. Stir in the wet ingredients until thoroughly combined.  Add more water/broth if too dry. Roll out small batches of the dough to about 3/8 of an inch thick. Use cookie cutters to cut shapes. Place cookies about a 1/2-inch apart (they will not spread very much) on a a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or Silpat mats. Bake for 12 to 17 minutes, until firm and the edges are golden brown.

The hubs tried them and said they tasted like a Cheese-it.
