Ingredients

1/2 cup chopped apple
1/2 cup chopped carrot
1/2 cup applesauce
1 t. baking powder
1 cup rye (or general purpose) flour
1 egg
parchment paper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Chop up apples and carrots to 1/4 inch cubes. Carrots do good in a food processor. Apples, not so much.
  3. Add all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Mix everything together well with a spoon or by hand.
  4. Sprinkle pastry mat or countertop with some extra flour so your dough doesn’t stick.
  5. Put dough on pastry mat or countertop. Begin to flatten out by hand, sprinkling more flour on top of dough as needed (to prevent stickiness)
  6. Use rolling pin to roll out dough until it is about 1/4 inch thick.
  7. Using a cookie cutter, begin cutting out individual treats. Place them on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.
  8. Put in oven and cook for 30-35 minutes. Treats will be firm but not hard when done.

Store in refrigerator.
