Homemade Dog Cookies

June 1st, 2010 at 06:22 pm

A twitter follower asked for a good homemade dog biscuit recipe and I have three (will send her the link to this post).

Meat Lovers
Dogs are carnivores face it, and can't resist the flavor. You should never pour the bacon fat, beef trimmings or chicken drippings away again.

Ingredients:
2 1/2 C whole wheat flour
1 tsp brown sugar
1/2 C powdered milk
6 Tbsp meat drippings
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 C ice water

Steps:
1. Lightly oil cookie sheet.
2. Combine flour, powdered milk, salt, garlic powder and sugar in a large bowl.
3. Cut in meat drippings.
4. Mix in egg.
5. Add enough ice water so mixture forms a ball.
6. Pat dough to 1/2" thick.
7. Cut with cookie cutter (I have a dog bone shape!).
8. Bake 25-30 min @350 deg F.
9. Cool. Store in refrig.

Cheese Lovers
If you have cut way back on the red meat but still want to make irresistable treats, this one's for you.

Ingredients:
4 C whole wheat flour
3/4 C vegetable oil
3 tsp garlic powder
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/4 C shredded cheese
1 1/4 C milk

Steps:
1. Lightly oil cookie sheet.
2. Combine flour and garlic powder in a large bowl.
3. Gradually stir in oil, cheese, egg and milk.
4. Blend well.
5. Roll out dough gently. (Don't worry about making a tender flaky dough, the dog will eat it anyway!)
6. Cut with cookie cutter.
7. Bake 25 min @400 deg F. Time may vary due to thickness.
8. Cool. Store in refrig.

Peanut Butter Dog Cookies for the Vegetarian Homes
Yes, you can please just about anyone!

Ingredients:
2 1/4 C whole wheat flour
3/4 C white flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 C peanut butter
1 C milk

Steps:
1. Line a cookie sheet with foil.
2. Combine flours and baking powder in a large bowl.
3. Combine milk and peanut butter in a separate bowl and mix until smooth.
4. Gradually stir peanut butter mixture into flour mixture.
5. Knead by hand and roll out on a floured surface. (Don't worry about making a tender flaky dough, the dog will eat it anyway!)
6. Cut with cookie cutter.
7. Bake 15 min @400 deg F. Time may vary due to thickness.
8. Cool. Store in refrig.

My dog loves all three.
TIP: GREAT easy fun for kids to do by themselves. Yes, the dog will eat them no matter what!!

TIP: GREAT for gifts at winter holidays (NO ICING). Fill cello bags and tie with happy dog bone tags.

Thanks and happy dog cookie days.
