Mary's Cookie Recipe!

We often get asked about Mary's cookie recipe. Here it is!

Kayla & Ruby’s Awesome Cookies

2 jars of chicken (or turkey) & gravy baby food
1/2 cup raw wheat germ
3/4 cup powdered skim milk

Directions: Grease cookie sheet. Mix all ingredients until well blended. Drop by small spoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes. Cool completely before serving.

Mary's notes: I keep them in an air tight container in the refrigerator. These can be frozen, too. I have made them without the powdered milk and moistened the mixture with water.
