I first made this recipe many years ago when we lived in our beloved farmhouse in the countryside of North Carolina. We had three dogs at the time and I had just begun doing much more baking at home.
“What!? Did you say Dog treats!?!?!?!?!”
My doggies got a taste of these, and have not left me alone since! Griff keeps sitting at the kitchen door staring at me with those big brown eyes!
When I baked them for the first time, my middle child Josh said they smelled really good and asked if people could eat them. I said yes, but I didn’t know if he would like them. Well…he tried one and decided that the dogs shouldn’t have them…he wanted them! So, I told him I would make him some “people ones” soon.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Combine all of the ingredients in your mixer bowl with a dough hook.
Mix it for a couple minutes until smooth.
Roll the dough out on a floured surface, to 1/4 inch thick.
Cut the biscuits with cute little cookie cutters if you like.
Or simply cut it into rectangles or diamonds with a pizza cutter.
Place the dog biscuits on cookie sheets and poke them in the center with a fork. Bake for 8 minutes, then keeping the oven door closed, let the sheets sit in the oven for 1-2 hours or until biscuits are hard.
And may your puppies enjoy!
