My friend, Dawn, introduced me to the Pyramid Mat - it's meant for cooking meat but when you flip it over, it's got hundreds of little cavities that are perfect for filling with your favourite treat batter. I have made tuna treats (recipe below) a number of times now. It takes no time at all, clean up is easy and there's no cutting. This has quickly become my go to treat!;
- your cookie batter must be smooth. Dawn uses a food processor for this. I've tried a blender and a hand held stick blender. Both work with my preference being the stick blender.
- adjust the amount of water so that it's more like a batter than a dough.
- place the pyramid tray, cavity side up, on a cookie sheet before you spread the batter.
- use a spatula to spread the batter (it's not necessary to fill every cavity but do spend some time scraping off excess batter off especially between the cavities).
Tuna Treat Recipe
2 cans of tuna in water
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
Put ingredients including the water from the tuna in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth (I like to add a bit more water to this recipe). Use a spatula to spread the batter on the pyramid pan. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes. Let cool. Turn tray over to roll the treats out. Treats will be soft so it's best to store them in the freezer in an air tight container - they are small so defrost in no time at all!
