Einstein is sharing his meemaw's classic Carob Chip Cookie recipe in honor of Chocolate Chip Cookie Day this week! In place of chocolate chips, Einstein used carob chips, which are dog-friendly and taste sweet too.

What you'll need: 

1 1/2 cups Brown Rice Flour
1 1/2 cups Oat Flour
3/4 cup Carob Chips
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 egg
3/4 cup water

How to make them:

1) Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Farenheit.
2) Combine all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and use a spatula or large spoon to fold over the dough to moisten it throughout. Continue until you have a stiff, dry dough.
3) Press the dough down onto a flat surface and use cookie cutters to create fun shapes. 
4) Place in the oven and cook for about 20 minutes. 
5) Let cool and enjoy!

 

Einstein Pro-Tip: Be careful if you choose to cut the dough into shapes; since the dough is dry you may find that it breaks apart when transferring it from the cookie cutter to the baking sheet. This dough does not expand when as it cooks.

3) Slice the apples thinly and evenly, about 1/4 inch thick. Using a mandoline slicer can make the process faster and easier (the pieces will be more uniform).

4) To prevent the rings of raw apple from browning, dip them in a solution of 1/4 cup lemon juice mixed with 1 quart of water. Pat them dry. 

5) Sprinkle the slices with a light dusting of cinnamon and then arrange them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. 

6) Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake the apples for 60-90 minutes, or until they're dried and shriveled, but still tender. The time will vary based on your oven, the temperature, humidity levels, apple varieties, slice thickness, etc.

Einstein offers his take on a Labor Day favorite with his mouthwatering Strawberry Shortcake Biscuits.

What you'll need:

1 cup White Whole Wheat Flour or  Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup Baker's Special Dry Milk or nonfat dry milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1 cup diced fresh strawberries
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup + 1/2 tablespoon cold water, enough to make a cohesive dough
6 oz. Plain Greek Yogurt
1 1/2 tablespoons of Honey

How to make them:

1) Preheat the oven to 300°F. Lightly grease a couple of baking sheets, or line them with parchment.
2) Blend the oats in a food processor or blender to a fine powder.
3) Mix together the flour, oats, dried milk, and salt.
4) Add the egg, peanut butter, and strawberries, stirring to combine; the mixture will be crumbly.
5) Add enough water to bring the dough together; depending on the season, you may need to add a bit less (summer), or a bit more (winter).
6) Roll the dough about 1/4" thick, and cut with the cookie cutter of your choice. Gather and re-roll the scraps, and continue to cut biscuits until you've used all the dough.
7) Bake the biscuits for about 45 minutes. When finished, the biscuits will be golden brown.
8) Remove the biscuits from the oven, and cool right on the pans.

 

For the icing:

 

1) In a small mixing bowl, combine yogurt and honey. Whisk to thin out the yogurt.
2) Use a spoon to pipe yogurt mixture into each biscuit.

 

Place in an airtight container and keep up to a week. If you add the yogurt, be sure to store in the fridge with wax paper between each layer of treats. Biscuits will get softer and yogurt will harden in the fridge.
