Homemade dog treats!

13 Jul
I came across this recipe at About A Mom and I had to share it! She makes her own doggie biscuits. The recipe looks pretty easy, no crazy weird ingredients or anything. Even though we don’t have a dog, I may have to try these and bring them to a friend who does!
Ingredients
1 cup rolled oats (I have used quick cook oats and they work just fine)
1/3 cup margarine
1 cup boiling water
¾ cup cornmeal
2 teaspoons white sugar
2 chicken bouillon cubes
½ cup milk
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 egg, beaten
3 cups whole wheat flour
Directions
1 Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Boil water with bouillon cubes. In a large bowl, combine rolled oats, margarine, and boiling
water. Let stand 10 minutes. Grease cookie sheets.
2 Thoroughly stir in cornmeal, sugar, milk, Cheddar cheese, and egg. Mix in flour, 1 cup at a time, until a stiff dough has formed.
3 Knead dough on a lightly floured surface, mixing in additional flour as necessary until dough is smooth and no longer sticky.
Roll or pat out dough to ½” thickness. Cut with cookie cutter and place 1 inch apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
4 Bake 35 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown. Cool before serving. Store In a loosely covered container.

Thanks About A Mom for the recipe.

    Hello! Stopping by from High on Life Thursday blog hop. I copied this recipe down. We have six dogs (we live on a farm) and they love treats. I think these would be cheaper than store bought, and much better for them! I followed, and would love to have you come visit too! http://klcmaher-themorethemerrier.blogspot.com

    We thought about making our own dog treats when our dog was alive. Maybe some day when we have a new dog in our lives.

    Oh! My dogs will feel so special! I told my husband just last night that I wanted to bake, but didn’t want to eat it all myself, so I suppose this would fit the bill LOL
