Homemade Dog Biscuits

A while back, I mentioned a dog biscuit recipe that Mom had misplaced. Well, now we've found it and would like to share it with all our doggie friends. They aren't as fancy as the gourmet treats, but they're easy to make in your kitchen.

Homemade Dog Biscuits
3/4 cup hot water
1/3 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup powdered milk
1 teaspoon salt (optional -- if you have a heart problem, dont add this one!)
1 Tablespoon beef or chicken boullion crumbies (for flavor)
1 egg
3 cups whole wheat flour
In a bowl, mix hot water and margarine. Stir in powdered milk, salt and beaten egg. Add flour, a little at a time. Knead for five minutes. This will make a stiff dough, but keep working it. Roll it out to about 1/2 inch thick and use cookie cutters to cut out shapes. We like to make dog bone shapes, but you can make bunnies, cows, reindeer, whatever. Bake on a cookie sheet at 350 degrees for about 45-50 minutes. Be sure to let them cool before you sneak one, they come out of the oven HOT.
So there you are, blogger friends. Make up a batch and keep them handy in a basket or jar. You can feel good about these snacks because you know just what's in them and how fresh they are. Just remember, pace yourself and don't eat too many at one time.
