Mary's StoryThese 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.
hot water;iuse beef or chicken broth
powdered milk or coffee creamer
whole wheat flour
1In 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.
2Bake at 325 degrees for 50 minutes.Cool on cooling rack. They dry out quite hard.
3Makes about 1 1/4 pounds.
4I make a double batch of beef and chicken,also use Walmart coffee creamer in place of powdered milk because it costs less.
5HOPE 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!
