National Dog Day: Homemade Dog Biscuits

Today is National Dog Day, so in celebration I thought I'd post a recipe for Homemade Dog Biscuits. This particular recipe is also good for fighting plaque build up. And, needless to say there is no chocolate in these biscuits. Chocolate is dangerous for dogs, often life-threatening.

HOMEMADE DOG BISCUITS

Ingredients
3/4 cup powdered skim milk
1/2 cup stone ground cornmeal
1/4 cup bulghur wheat
1-1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 chicken bouillon cube
1-12/ cups boiling water
1 cup quick cooking rolled oats
1 egg, beaten

Directions
In mixing bowl, combine powdered skim milk, cornmeal, bulghur wheat, and flour. Set aside
In large mixing bowl, dissolve bouillon cube in boiling water. Add rolled oats and let stad about 5 minutes. Stir in beaten egg.
Slowly stir in dry ingredients, half cup at a time, until well blended. Blend last few cups with hands.
Divide dough into 2 balls.
Knead each dough ball on floured surface (5 minutes)
With rolling pin, roll dough between 1/4" to 1/2" thickness
Cut with Bone shaped Biscuit Cutter (or another cookie cutter) and put on baking sheet lined with foil.
Bake 50 minutes at 325.
Turn of oven and let biscuits cool for several hours or overnight, in the oven.
