Beefy Dog Treats For Gifts

Saw this recipe in Taste Of Home Magazine thought it would make a nice gift.
1 package active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water(110 to 115)
1 teaspoon beef bouillon granules
2 tablespoons boiling water
2 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 cup nonfat dry milk powder
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup cooked long grain rice
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1 jar (4 ounces) veg. beef dinner
baby food
1 egg
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In another small bowl, disolve bouillon in boiling water. In a large bowl , combine the all- purpose flour, milk powder, wheat flour, rice and gelatin. Stir in the baby food egg, oil, yeast mixture and bouillon mixture until combined, knead until mixture forms a ball.

Turn onto a lightly floured surface, roll to 1/4 in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2 in. bone-shaped cookie cutter. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake at 300* for 25-30 minutes or until set. Remove to wire racks to cool. Let stand for 24 hours or until hardened. Store in a airtight container. Yield: about 3 dozen.

I've made these--the dogs love them. I've also substituted different veggie baby foods--mainly because I had so many lol. I've taken to making all my dog treats for the same reasons I make my own kids' treats--if you look at the labels you'll wonder exactly what the heck you're feeding your dog lol!!

I made our dogs treats back when we were butchering beef with a friends family and used bone meal in place of the powered milk. We had plently as no one else wanted any after the saw was cleaned so I'd freeze it in cup size portions for future batches of bones.
