Mary's Story

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.


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.
Makes about 1 1/4 pounds.
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 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.
