Countdown to Kickoff: Tasty Tailgating Treats

Countdown Treats 1 edit thek9harperlee

Who says college football tailgating is just for humans? Dogs enjoy a tasty treat before the game just as much as anyone, so my human mommy and I whipped up a little something for me to share with all of my canine friends before the big LSU Tigers season opener this Saturday.

To make these tasty tailgating treats, we turned to a couple of recipes that we’ve used before: Happy Hip Bones Treats from 3mbakery and cream cheese frosting from Wear.Wag.Repeat. (You can click here and here for links to the recipes.) I was in charge of quality control, and a I can assure you that the combination of oat flour, peanut butter, turmeric, ginger, and apple cider vinegar more than met my very high standards.

While I supervised watched, Mommy cut the rolled out dough into footballs, football helmets, and of course L-S-U. And then we popped the treats into the oven and waited for an eternity 30 minutes.

I let Mommy decorate the golden cookies with purple cream cheese frosting . . . perfect colors for an LSU tailgate. Now Mommy would have you believe that she planned for the treats to be gold, but it was just a happy coincidence thanks to the turmeric. She thinks that might be a sign of good things to come for our Tigers this Saturday. She thinks funny things like that when it comes to football.

But I won’t make too much fun of Mommy’s silly football superstitions because she made this extra special cookie just for me, HL. It was gone in one bite. Yummy!

We’ve packaged our canine tailgating treats and will deliver them over the next few days so that all of my doggy friends will have a little something to enjoy before the big game. Just a word of caution for my friends: Saving these tasty treats for Saturday may prove to be a bit of a test!

    Whoa! You’re in Louisiana? Did I not know this? I’ll be traveling through in late October and again in early November, carrying treats. I’ll be coming through Shreveport, Alexandria, Baton Rouge and New Orleans. We should have lunch!

    Those look great! I think it’s definitely a good sign that they turned out just the right color…superstitions are very important when it comes to sports. 🙂

    • My humans are hilarious during the games. They have to sit in very specific spots on the couch and sometimes when things aren’t going well they stand up to give our teams a little help. Ok, now that I think about it maybe they’re a little more crazy than hilarious!

    Tumeric and ginger, interesting. We will check the icing. Sugar will love it, its purple. DELISH! Happy Tasty Tuesday

    • Turmeric and ginger are both anti-inflammatories so they’re good for our joints and the icing is just cream cheese and food color. Mommy used the light cream cheese, of course!

  13. MyDogLikes says:

    • Well now that you know what tailgating is all about, I insist that you indulge. The treats taste delicious too. It’s funny that my human mommy has never ever decorated human cookies, but for me and all my doggy friend . . . anything!
