Thank you Jeannie!! And thank you for being so persistent so you could share this recipe with me (I'm the one who was helping you on the sidelines LOL). I will try yours too.

I made the first batch today. Angel eats them, but she wasn't quite sure of them at first, obviously they have a different taste that the commercial brands.

By the way, I did use the homemade chicken broth, so I'm glad I did, thanks for the tip about the salt! Just for fun, here's the ones I made today LOL

LMAO I was down to the end of the dough so I made a dog too I also rolled a bone shaped one. I'm waiting for the cat lovers to tell me that cat shaped dog biscuits are inappropriate and it's cruelty to animals. Hey! I'm a cat lover too!

Dog Biscuits

Hi, Here's a dog biscuit recipe I've had good luck with.

2 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. self-rising flour
1/2 t. salt
3 T. dried milk
1 T. honey
1 egg beaten
1 T. chicken boullion
2 cloves of garlic minced
3 T. canola oil
1/4 c. + 2 T. water
Mix thoroughly and roll into a ball, cover with plastic and chill for 30 min. Roll out to 1/4 " thick and cutout with a cookie cutter. Bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes.

from the book "Dog Crafts" by Bobby Needham

Works well as gifts for the person who has everything and a dog too!

I have a reliable recipe for "Bowser Biscuits" also "Kitty Kookies"
"Bowser Biscuits"
21/2 Cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup powdered nonfat milk
1 tablespoon margarine
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt (optional)
1 egg
Optional ingredients: 3 tablespoons (your choice) dry beef or chicken boullion, dried soup greens or dry soup mix.

Mix ingredients with 1/2 cup cold water and knead for 3 minutes. Dough should form a ball. Roll to 1/2" thickness and cut. Bake on lightly greased cookie sheet for 30 minutes at 350. Many specialty shops sell cookie cutters in the shape of a dog bone, if you care for that "realistic" touch.

"Kitty Kookies"

1/2 cup powdered nonfat milk
1/2 cup wheat germ
7 Oz. mashed sardines
Optional ingredient: Try adding a bit of anchovy paste for a fishier flavor.

Mix ingredients together and roll into 24 small balls. Put onto a greased cookie sheet. Flaten with a fork. Bake at 350 until brown, about 15-20 minutes.

dog bisquits

Hi, I'm new. I make this for my dogs all the time. They love it.

Dog Treats Your Dog Will Love!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1 cup flour
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup quick cooking oats
1/4 cup wheat germ
1 Tsp. baking powder

Mix all of the above all the above, then add 1/2 cup flour more. I use a food processor. It's a lot easier!

Roll out to about 1/4 inch thick. Use a cookie cutters to cut out shapes. I use a small heart and a bone shape. Bake 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Turn off oven and leave inside for 15-20 minutes. If your dogs are like mine they'll be waiting at the oven door.

I work in a pet clinic and we have many pets on restricted diets. If you have a pet on a restricted diet, here is a recipe for treats using your pets "special diet food".

Homemade Treats for Pets on Special Diets

Grind the kibbles into flour using a blender and mix with enough water to form a dough. Shape into "cookies" and bake them on a cookie sheet for approx. 30 minutes at 350 or until crispy.

All homemade treats need to be stored in the refrigerator no longer than 5-7 days to maintain freshness and prevent spoilage.

As you know it is very important for your pet to stay strictly on the prescribed diet and this will allow them to feel special and spoiled.
