2 1/2 cups
whole wheat flour
beef bouillon granules
My Corgi goes after these biscuits like she was starved (believe me she isn't). I made the mistake of putting them in a zip lok bag and they became soft and almost mouldy. Now I put them in a brown bag and all is well
Garlic is NOT good for animals!! Please OMIT this ingredient!
You can replace the bacon grease with canola oil and just brush the top of the baked treats with a little of the bacon grease. They still love them, but the treats are much healthier.
Crispy and toasty tasting. All I can say is: WOW!! Since we have 2 dogs I wanted to double the recipe (and since they're going so fast, I'm glad I did!) I only had 4.5 cups of whole wheat flour so I added 1/2 cup of self-rising yellow cornmeal to equal the 5 cups called for and since we had baked ham for dinner last night, I trimmed off the fat, cut it into little bits and rendered fat from it on top of the stove in a pan on medium-low instead of using the bacon fat. Since the fat rendered was a little under the amount of fat called for I added some vegetable oil and then mixed in the crispy left-over bits of ham fat into the dough too! Our dogs have been following me around all morning for more of these treats! These will be baked up for our friend's dogs as Christmas presents this year! One hint though, after you cut the treats ( I used a round cutter that was 1 inch in diameter) use the flat bottom of a bowl to flatten out the treats to a thinner treat (1/4 inch) and extend the baking time to 40 minutes to make them crispier. After placing the cut out cookies to the baking sheet and into the oven, I gathered up the remaining dough, added a drop or two of water, mixed it in to the dough, sprinkled a little more flour on the counter and rolled out the dough again and continued to do this until the last bit of dough was used! OUR DOGS CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF THESE!! Five Stars!
I asked my vet about the garlic. It is such small amount it will not hurt your dog. Plus fleas hate garlic!
I have two dogs and buying biscuits from the store was really adding up. Thanks so much for posting this recipe, I have made it at least a half dozen times already and they LOVE it!
A good recipe. It turned out well and my dog loved them. Not a crumb was left! Next time I think I'll try using olive oil instead of the bacon fat since I always have olive oil on hand but usually don't have bacon grease.
My dog LOVES these. He seems to know when I am making them and eagerly awaits them. I do add 1/4-1/2 cup peanut butter to it b/c he LOVES PB.. I made a batch for my dog and my future mother in law and brother in laws dogs this year.
