Fur Baby Holiday Treats

Today I'm working on fur baby treats for the holiday.  I've decided that if I'm absent of lots of babies around (my adored Granddaughter is in high school) I will treat all of the fur babies to a stocking stuffed with some goodies for the holiday.  At least I can make those treats ahead of time - I don't think they'll mind.

My finished pile of Doggie Treats
 
I've really been getting into the "earth mother" thing lately.  I actually wonder if that is a shoot off from working with the clay.  The whole getting your hands dirty things has royally rubbed off for some reason.  Baking bread has become a bi-weekly thing and the loaves are turning out  phenomenally.  My favorite is laced with asiago and cheddar cheese but no preservatives.  It's nice and filling.

Anyway, I digress.  Today's goodies are dog biscuits.  My favorite (Trudy's too) and super easy recipe goes like this:

2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
2/3 cup flavored liquid (bouillon, broth, etc.)
6 Tbs. vegetable oil


1. Mix the ingredients.   
2. Roll and cut into shapes.  I like to roll it out and use a pizza cutter to make squares.  I also
    use a dog biscuit cutter.
3. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 - 40 minutes.

There you go - that's all there is to it.
Trudy whole heartedly approves.

I'm pretty sure I've used this recipe to make treats for Cooper. He definitely loved them!

I need to try your recipe. I did this a couple of years ago for Christmas and Chase, our Shih Tzu, was not impressed. ;) However our daughter's dog, Bella, loved them.

You can see my recipe here:

Please ignore the McDonald's AD - no idea how that got on my old blog site. Ugh. I hate ADs.

I was worried about Trudy too at first. She's not one for new things. She'll take something new - roll it around in her mouth, spit it out and then if she decides it's cool - she eats. Once the inital "trial" is over with, then it's game on. This treat is definitely game on. Lela, I use beef broth and more than what the recipe says - maybe Chase would like that. I'll check out your recipe. There's always room for more goodies in the stockings!

Thanks for the recipe! I made it with bacon fat. Sparky loves them.
