beef bouillon granules
shredded Cheddar cheese

My dog loves em. This one was recommended to me by a friend, and she suggested omitting the cheese and bouillon and adding 1 cup peanut butter. Makes for a better dough too. :)
NOTE: SHORT SHELF LIFE. Unlike the biscuits you buy from the store which are good indefinitely, these are more like people cookies. I made a full batch for my little dog and had to throw most of it away after a few weeks because it turned hard and mildewed. Cut the portions down, or else freeze some of the dough or biscuits.
I have used this recipe twice for fund raisers. The treats sold like hotcakes with the proceeds going to The United Way both times. The feedback I got from dog owners was STUPENDOUS! DOGS LOVE THESE TREATS!!! One lady told me she was given a few of these by a co-worker and took them home in her purse. When she got home, her dog literally dragged her purse across the floor trying to get to them. I substitute Jiffy cornbread mix for the cornmeal (& eliminate the sugar). I also have used chicken bouillon. To cut down on work for me, I always buy the large bags of sharp shredded cheese (Kraft). This is a little more cheese than the recipe calls for, but works great. This makes a large batch, so just divide appropriately and freeze the rest for later. Bow Wow!
Seemed to work out pretty well, but my vet told me that cornmeal isn't good for dogs, so I'm not sure if I'll make it again.
We made these and gave them to all our friends with dogs, everyone LOVED them! Did omit the milk and added 1/3 cup peanut butter and 1/2 cup chicken broth, makes a GREAT easy to work with dough. Stored in the refrigerator, and they are a GREAT inexpensive dog treat to make!
This was a very easy recipie to work with! The dough was great and not sticky at all!!! But caution, check cookies every 10 minutes. Certain different pans might cook quicker! You can find all sorts of cookie cutters (including bone shape) at Michaels Craft Store! I bake a few dozen for all my doggie clients every Christmas! (I'm a groomer!)
Winner! Our Samoyed, Herbert, loves these. We have done the side by side test with these against Breathbusters, pig ears, Snausages, roast beef with gravy, and pepperoni sticks and he chooses these treats every time! I use a little less flour (maybe 2 and a half cups) and just cut in squares rather than bothering with cookie cutters. Be careful though because some dogs have sensitivities to corn meal!!
My dog loved these cookies. The dough was easy to work with. They do not spread out in the oven - so I put as many as I could on one cookie sheet. Very easy to make!
