These are easy to make and very inexpensive.Makes 1 1/4 pounds of biscuits for about 40 cents a pound.I use a small size bone shaped cookie cutter.Our dogs love them.They even sit by the stove while I'm baking them.

pinch tips: How to Knead Dough


3/4 c
hot water;iuse beef or chicken broth
1/3 c
1/2 c
powdered milk or coffee creamer
1 pinch
3 c
whole wheat flour

Directions Step-By-Step

In a bowl pour hot water or broth over margarine.Stir in powered milk,salt and egg. Add flour 1/2 cup at a time.Knead for a few minutes to form a stiff dough.Pat or roll to 1/2 to 1/4 inch thickness.Cut into bone shapes.
Bake at 325 degrees for 50 minutes.Cool on cooling rack. They dry out quite hard.

I make a double batch of beef and chicken,also use Walmart coffee creamer in place of powdered milk because it costs less.
HOPE your dogs enjoy them as much as mine do.

I know they'll like them.I use either chicken or beef broth when I make them.My dogs sit in front of the oven waiting for them to get done.Next time I make them my daughter is going to take pictures so I can add them to the recipe.

That would be great...pictures are always good, aren't they? I am guilty with a lot of my recipes not to have pictures but try to get them on as soon as I make a recipe too...

I am going to make these though for my little guys...they 'love' the word treats...but what dog doesn't right? This will be fun as now I can cook for them... :) Thanks Mary...

besides being cheap, the point of making your own is to know exactly what our pets are eating. using coffee creamer is really not the best choice of ingredients if the latter is why you're making them. always use real milk!

How long will these last? Do you need to refrigerate or freeze them?

Carroll,These dog bones store well in an airtight container in a cool dry place.Two months in the refrigerator and eight months in the freezer.In my house they are gone in 2 or 3 days,we have 4 dogs.
A good reference site is dogtreatkitchen.com:there are recipes galore for dog treats and homemade food.

I love this recipe. My 2 german shepherds also love this recipe and would eat the whole amount at one time if I let them. The only difference I do is I use a freeze-dried butter powder which I ordered in a tall can and I didn't like the taste so I use it here. I also use beef or chicken bouillon cubes for water and no salt as the bouillon is already salty. I always make a double batch and I just use one egg.I also use the Walmart coffee creamer.all in all this is a great recipe just about any way you make it.
