Original recipe makes 4 1/2 pounds biscuits Change Servings


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease a cookie sheet.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine white flour, whole wheat flour, cracked wheat, cornmeal, garlic powder, brewer's yeast and instant milk. Stir in 2 cups broth. Mix the ingredients well using either your hands or an heavy duty electric mixer. The dough should be very stiff. Gradually mix in the remaining 1 cup broth to make a bread-dough consistency.
  3. Roll the dough out to a 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch thickness on a floured board. Cut out biscuits into any shape you please. Place the biscuits on the prepared cookie sheet. Brush the tops of the biscuits lightly with milk.
  4. Bake the cookies 45 minutes; turn oven off completely but do not remove the biscuits. Let the biscuits sit in the oven overnight (for 10 hours). Store biscuits in an air-tight container.

These are great -- my dogs love them. My first batch did mold so the second batch I omitted the milk and cooked them a little longer. All the dogs in my family got them for Christmas! I have already made them several times.

Garlic is poison to dogs, milk is bad for dogs, most dogs are allergic to any kind of wheat or corn product. It causes skin problems. I am a Veterinary Technician

This recipe worked well for me, with a few changes. As with some other reviewers, I couldn't find Brewer's yeast or Cracked wheat (I have since). I substituted oatmeal for the cracked wheat and added 2 T. peanut butter to hot bullion to supplement for the lack of Brewer's yeast. I also omitted the milk "topping". My hound loves them...and she's 16 and pretty darn fussy!! I roll and cut them out different shapes to give her a bit of variety. Thanks for the recipe--got anything with carob for my chocolate lovin' girl?!

I've been paying outrageous prices so that my two little cockapoo darlings can have treats. With all my grandkids, great nieces and nephews around, they're inclined to be on sugar highs most of the time because they're just the right size to grab a cookie from a little one. I decided to try this doggie bone treat. They really seem to enjoy it. I make the bones with chicken broth sometimes. They seem to prefer the beef more. After ten hours in the oven, they tend to be pretty darn crunchy! Good jaw and tooth exercise! Thanks Juanita.

My dogs love these biscuits! They bake nice and hard, so smaller dogs have to work at it a bit to eat them. The biscuits give them plenty of chewing enjoyment!

I made these biscuits according to the recipe with just one small alteration.... instead of adding 2 cups cracked wheat, I added 1 cup cracked wheat and 1 cup of couscous. The mixture was very plentiful!!..... I should have used my very largest bowl for mixing. I baked them for 45 minutes and cooled them down completely before storing them in several air-tight biscuit tins. My dog and friends' dogs absolutely loved them! For Xmas I cut the dough into Xmas tree and ginger bread man shapes. They were fun. On the ones which I cut with a round scone cutter I put a small piece of dried liver before baking. The biscuits ended up very hard and crisp, and should be very good for the dogs' teeth.

I also discovered the benefits of leaving milk out of the recipe (regarding spoilage), due to my pet’s food allergy. I have spent a fair share of money on treats for my border collie, Sophie, and she craves these above all others!! Because of these yummy snacks, she is more spoiled than ever!

I made these for Christmas treats for our dogs and friends' dogs. The brewer's yeast in hard to find, but someone told me not to put bread yeast in it as a substitute because it might hurt the dog. I ended up going to a health food store to find it. My dogs really liked these, and I think it was worth the extra effort!
