I made yummy dog treats for pills

I think I've found a great substitute for "Pill Pockets"

It is very similar to pate a choux (cream puff dough) without the eggs.

1 small jar of strained baby food, 'chicken' meat,
then add enough water to make 8 oz
1 stick of butter
a few pinches of sugar or dribble of honey

look up how to make cream puff dough for the method, but basics are:

bring to a boil in sauce pan

1 cup of PEA flour like: http://www.bobsredmill.com/green_pea-...

Dump all the flour at one time and stir. cook and stir for about 3-5 minutes until mixture forms a ball and looks somewhat smooth.

Remove from heat, when cool enough to handle, I used a small mellon baller to scoop up bits of the dough and rolled into small balls between my palms.

Quick freeze Individually and then store them in zip lock freezer bags.

I put up to a weeks worth in the fridge (14 balls, 2 pills a day) and when I need to give my dog his pills, remove 1 cold one, let it warm up for just a few minutes and push the pill into the playdough like treat. I just smash it around in my hand to enclose the pill.

The dog loves them.

Next time I make them I'll add just 1 egg to make a smoother, less crumbly texture.
