After sharing their home-made dog biscuits with their local friends, their friends have requested that Susie and Beau share the great dog biscuit recipe that their daddy bakes for them on a regular basis.

 

If you had a choice between cheap mass-produced cookies with lots of preservatives and chemical ingredients and a batch of home-made, fresh cookies, what is the obvious choice?  – The homemade cookies, which probably won’t last long enough to need any preservatives. In this light your dog will feel the same way about mass-produced dog biscuits and tasty home-made treats that require only minimal effort to provide a great treat for your best friend(s).

 

Home-made dog treats and biscuits are safer, healthier, cheaper and tastier than those you buy in the store. Natural treats made with good ingredients and without loads of chemicals will definitely please both you and your dog.

 

The recipe we found uses peanut butter as the main flavor ingredient and I have not met a dog yet who doesn’t relish it.

 

The recipe is for “Best of Breed Dog Biscuits”:

 

2 Cups White Whole Wheat Flour

1 Cup rolled oats

1 Tablespoon dried parsley (or 2 tablespoons fresh parsley)

½ Cup dried milk

½ teaspoon salt

2 large eggs

1 Cup peanut butter

½ Cup cold water (+1 tablespoon – more in cold weather)

(We use King Arthur Flour and King Arthur Baker’s Special Dried Milk)

 

Preparation:

 

Preheat oven to 300 F.  Lightly grease a couple of baking sheets, or line them with parchment paper.

Mix together the flour, oats, parsley, dried milk and salt.

Add the eggs and peanut butter, stirring to combine; the mixture will be crumbly.

Add enough water to bring the dough together; depending on the season, you may need to add a bit more (winter), or a bit less (summer).

To make biscuits using a dog bone cutter, roll the dough about ¼” thick, and cut with cutter of your choosing. You can find these cutters in different sizes to accommodate the size of your pooch. Gather and reroll scraps until used.

To make dog “cookies” drop the dough in walnut sized balls onto the prepared baking sheets. Flatten them to about ¼” thick.

Bake the biscuits 40 – 60 minutes, baking the smaller ones for a shorter time,etc. When finished the biscuits will be dark golden brown and will be dry and crisp through.

Remove the biscuits from the oven, and cool right on the pans.

 

Tip: Although this recipe doesn’t require refrigeration, store the finished product in a cool and dry place. We use a dog shaped cookie jar. Recently we tried to make a two batch recipe and placed the excess in a plastic bag. The bagged biscuits molded, by the time the jar was empty. If you bake two batches, you could always bag and freeze the excess or second batch.
