Dehydrating cookie to extend shelf life?
I realize that most treats will last longer in fridge or freezer. Unfortunately, we have very little space...but I do have a dehydrator. I was told once that if food items are dehydrated, they would last longer at room temperature. If I bake the cookie and then put it into a dehydrator for say 8 hours, do you think it may last at least a couple months at room temperature?
Chef's Answer ~ I don't think that it would work very well. However, I've been wrong before! If you try this, please let me and other dog treat bakers know how it worked!
My suggestions would be to bake a half batch of the blueberry dog treats if you don't have much room in your fridge and freezer. If you bake a smaller batch, you would have approximately 10 dog muffins instead of 20. Then you could keep 5 or 6 in the freezer and keep 4 or 5 out for your dog to enjoy for about 2 weeks. If you have a friend or family member with a dog (and valuable freezer space) you could bake a full batch and keep them in their freezer! Their dog will get a few and so will yours! :)
