Homemade dog biscuits

Friday's Grand Connection Thought

Have you ever made homemade dog biscuits? Wouldn't it be fun to bake a batch or two of dog biscuits with the grandkids!

The June 2011 issue of the magazine 501 Life had a wonderful article about making homemade pet treats. The recipe below (by Don Bingham) sounds so easy.

Homemade Dog Milk Bone Biscuits
by Don Bingham

3/4cup hot water
1/3 cup margarine
1/2 cup powdered milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
3 cups whole-wheat flour

In a large bowl, pour hot water over the margarine. Stir in powdered milk, salt and egg. Add flour, half a cup at a time. Knead for a few minutes to form stiff dough. Pat or roll to half-inch thickness. Cut into bone shapes. Bake at 325 degrees for 50 minutes. Cool. They will dry out quite hard. Makes about one pound of biscuits. Costs around 30 cents per pound.

And here are some other recipes for homemade dog treats that I found on the Internet:
