Dog and Goat Treats.....

Okay, I know this isn't my recipe blog...but here is a recipe that was given to me by a dear friend (Hey Patty) that lives in Granite City, Il. and has one of the biggest "Dog Lover Hearts" I know of. Not only do the dogs LOVE them but my goats will literally knock you down if they know you have them in your pockets..Enjoy...have fun trying to find a Dog Biscuit Cookie Cutter..this one came from Target of all places.


1 1/2 Cups Unbleached Flour
1 1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 Cup Cornmeal
1/8 Cup Non Fat Dry Milk
1/8 to 1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder (NOT GARLIC SALT)
1 Egg Slightly Beaten
1 to 1 1/4 Cups of Water or Broth (I use Campbell's Beef Broth made per their directions)

1. Stir together the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add the egg, then add the water or broth gradually, stirring with a wooden spoon. The dough should be very stiff, if not, add a little more flour. Knead the dough with your hands to create a smooth texture.
2. Roll the dough 1/4 inch thick. (It helps if the "top" and "bottom" of the dough are lightly floured.) Use the cookie cutter to cut out the biscuits. Place the biscuits about 1/2 inch apart on lightly greased cookie sheets.
3. Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes to one hour**. The biscuits should be lightly browned and they should not be moist inside. Turn the oven off and let the biscuits stay inside without opening the oven door for five hours, or overnight, to let them harden.

Store the biscuits in an air tight container.
Makes: About 4 Dozen 3" x 1" Biscuits.

**In my oven they bake for 40 minutes.
