knick-knack, paddy whack

Homemade Dog Biscuits

2 3/4 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. powdered milk
1 t. salt
1/4 t. garlic powder
1 egg
6 T. vegetable oil
8-10 T. water
2 small jars strained baby food (beef, chicken, lamb or liver)

Preheat oven to 350°.

Mix all ingredients together in large bowl and knead about 3 minutes. Roll out on a floured surface to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut out with cookie cutters and place on ungreased baking sheet.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

This recipe comes from my friend Lora, who likes to cut hers in the shape of dachshunds. While the thought of her little pooch scarfing down his fellow mutts without a care in the world cracks me up, the shapes make it a bit confusing for us hungry humans. The first time I saw a bag of these treats on her desk, I mistakingly thought they were cookies and had just about shoved one into my pie hole when she let me know they were dog biscuits. This didn't stop Little Scarlet however. She does not discriminate when it comes to biscuits of any kind and likes them all most as much as our friends' doggies do.

Perfect! I'll make some for late Christmas gifts. Call 'em Epiphany gifts. :)
