Rosie’s Voodoo Pecan Pie
Rosie Delacroix grew up an only child in a small bayou town. After her father’s death, she and her mother moved to the quarter to start a new life. Although her mother taught her many things, like the family recipes, she kept one thing a secret…. That Rosie was a witch, one that was spoken of long ago. With the help of her magical Great Dane Guardian, Athena, she will find her way in this world and together they’ll grow into their powers.

Athena’s Magic Dog Treats
Athena comes from a long line of Great Danes that are infused with magic called Guardians. Guardians were bred to stand beside, and protect, the witches they were destined to bond with. She grew up in Germany in the 1600s, but after many hundreds of years traveled to modern New Orleans, La to meet her own special witch. She can often be found in the Quarter with her person, Rosie. When not eating lucky dogs in Jackson Square, she is off chasing ghosts in the courtyard. She is fierce and will protect those she loves at all costs.

Preheat oven to 300° degrees, lightly grease baking sheets; set aside.
Combine wheat germ, flour and rolled oats in a large bowl. Add peanut butter, oil, egg and water. Mix all ingredients together (I found if you do this with your hands or in a food processor it is much easier). On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/4 inch thick and cut with cookie cutter. Place biscuits on prepared baking sheets and bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Turn off oven, but leave biscuits inside until crunchy, at least 1 hour. Store biscuits in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
1/2 cup wheat germ
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/3 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup all-natural peanut butter
2 tablespoons oil
1/2 cup water
Yields 40 biscuits
*Lately I’ve found many books are featuring man’s best friend, and being a dog lover I only felt it was right that they received their own special recipe. This recipe does not contain chocolate and is meant to be for animal consumption.
