My friend Pat Rose loves dogs and has offered to baby sit whenever we needed someone. When I took Maggie over to meet Pat, there were homemade doggie bones for a treat for her. Now I knew for sure we had picked the perfect sitter! Maybe Maggie wouldn’t want to come back home!! I remembered I had a recipe for doggie bones. I got the recipe out of a Easy Bake Oven cookbook and also have a doggie bone cookie cutter. It doesn’t make a very big batch. I will have to make them and see if Maggie likes them as well as the ones she had at Pat’s house. If you’re motivated to treat your dog with a homemade treat, here is my recipe for homemade doggie bones!
1 unsalted beef or chicken bouillon cube or 1 tsp bouillon granules, dissolved in 4 Tbsp hot water
2 cups plus 4 Tbsp whole wheat flour
4 Tbsp nonfat dry milk
2 Tbsp beaten egg
4 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp. brown sugar
In a bowl, dissolve the bouillon in the hot water, add the rest of the ingredients, mix until it forms a soft dough. Sprinkle a whole wheat flour on waxed paper on counter and knead dough lightly for 2 minutes or until holds together well. Flatten with your hand then roll dough to a 1/4 inch thickness. Use cookie cutter to cut out biscuits. Place biscuits on ungreased cookie sheet; bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes depending on whether you want them soft or crisp. Store in air tight container. Pat said her recipe contains peanut butter so I may try experimenting with ingredients when I feel creative! Hope that your pup enjoys homemade treats. Have a great week!
