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.

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.

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