RECIPE: Recipe for dog biscuits/treats

Posted by deedeebaker (My Page) on

Would anyone have a "simple" T&T recipe that doesn't have a lot of ingredients but is good for your dog. I just want to try something simple to start. This is my first time having a dog as a pet. I also posted on the Craft forum for ideas as to what to put the treats in to give as gifts. Thank you...

These are all from Word of Mouth, friends of Humane Society of Knox County, Rockland, Maine.
CHASE'S CHEESE BONES (about 3 dozen)
2 cups flour
1 1/4 cups shredded cheese (your choice)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Approximately 1/4 cup water, more or less

Preheat oven to 400. Combine the flour, cheese, garlic & oil. Add water if necessary to form a stiff dough & knead well. Roll out on a floured surface to 1/2" thick & cut into shapes. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheed for 10-15 minutes or until the bottoms are lightly browned.~~ (I use parchment paper on the baking sheets when I bake these.

RUMPOLE'S ROCKS; A DOGGONE GOOD SNACK (makes about 30)
3 cups oatmeal
3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup powdered milk
1/2 cup bacon grease or leftover fat
2 eggs
2 tsp cod-liver oil
1 1/2 cups canned beef or chicken gravy

Preheat oven to 325. Combine all the above ingredients & drop the mixture by spoonfulls onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 50 minutes & cool the rocks on wire racks in a safe place. Store in a covered container.~~

NELLIE'S RYE CRISPS (makes 24 crackers)
2 cups rye flour
1/4 cup wheat flour
1/4 cup corn meal
6 TBL vegetable oil
2/3 cup warm water

Preheat oven to 350. Combine the dry ingredients & then stir in the oil & warm water. Form the mixture into a ball & then pat or roll it out to 1/4" thick. Cut into shapes & bake on a greased cookie sheet for 30-40 minutes.~~You can also make this with all whole wheat flour or 1/2 rye, 1/2 whole wheat.

Here's one....has an awful lot of honey though..
Snickerpoodles Dog Treats
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup honey
2 eggs
3 3/4 cups white flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup cornmeal
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Mix vegetable oil, shortening and honey together until smooth. Add eggs and beat well. Blend in flour, baking soda and cream of tartar. Knead dough until mixed well. Shape dough by rounded teaspoons into balls. Mix the cornmeal and cinnamon together in a bowl and roll balls in mixture. Place 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with a nonstick spray. Press the balls down with a fork twice going in 2 different directions or press with your favorite stamp. Bake 8 minutes at 400. Remove from baking sheet and cool on a rack.
And here are more....which are a bit more trouble:
What the doggies like is garlic and meat paste. I make my own meat paste, from leftover pot roast and canned beef broth, in the food
processor. For the picky-est of the picky eaters try cheese or cheese-and-bacon.
What you're going for is a thick, non-fluffy, very heavy dough that smells strongly like meat and garlic. And a low oven temperature, to
bake them hard and long-lasting.
BASIC RECIPE ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour, or any combination of heavy, whole-grain flours
1/2 cup nonfat powdered milk
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. Lawry's Seasoned Salt
1 large egg
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 cup hot meat paste (see notes above)
1/4 to 1/2 cup very hot water
Mix together well with an electric mixer. Turn out onto a floured pastry cloth and knead until elastic and "set." Cut with dog-bone
cutter, or with the edge of a drinking glass. Spray cookies sheets with Pam and place biscuits on them. They will not spread at all,
so you can place them very close together. Bake at 250 degrees F. for one hour, turn trays 180 degrees, and bake at least another
half hour.
FOR CHEESE BISCUITS ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
If you know that you're going to be making doggie treats, save up all the hard bits of leftover cheese. Grate them up and use them, in
place of the meat paste. If you do not have leftover cheese, then buy a bag of Kraft grated cheese, sharp cheddar, and use that.
Once the biscuits are on the cookie trays, you can sprinkle them with grated Parmesan.
FOR CHEESE-AND-BACON ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Add Hormel's Real Bacon Bits (they're in the salad dressing section of your grocery store)

Fido's Favorite Treats
Yield: 1 batch
1 c. Rolled oats
1/3 c. Margarine
1 c. Boiling water
3/4 c Cornmeal
1 tbp. Sugar
2 tsp. chicken or beef flavored instant bouillon
1/2 c. Milk
4 oz (1 cup) shredded cheddar cheese
1 Egg, beaten
2 c. To 3 cups whole wheat flour.
Heat oven to 325 degrees. Grease cookie sheets. In
large bowl, combine rolled oats, margarine and
boiling water; let stand 10 minutes. Stir in cornmeal,
sugar, bouillon, milk, cheese and egg; mix well.
Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off.
Add flour 1 cup at a time, mixing well after each
addition to form a stiff dough.
On floured surface, knead in remaining flour until
dough is smooth and no longer sticky, 3 to 4
minutes. Roll or pat out dough to 1/2 inch
thickness, cut with bone shaped cookie cutter.
Place 1 inch apart on greased cookie sheets. Bake
at 325 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes on until
golden brown. Cool completely. Store loosely
covered. Makes 3 1/2 dozen large dog biscuits or 8
dozen small dog biscuits.
