Dog biscuits are now around $4.00 a box in our local store. I found this recipe several years ago at an Amish store in Indiana, and bought some of their metal dog bone cookie cutters with it. I found I can make the same amount for around 57 cents. This is the basic recipe, I usually do it times 4, as we have 4 dogs. I have also found they keep longer in the freezer than it states in the recipe.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Add oil, broth, eggs, and milk. Mix until thoroughly combined. Whisk together wheat flour and cornmeal, and add to the above.
Roll out dough on a floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut with cookie cutters. Gather remaining dough and roll flat. Cut as many dog biscuits as you can.
Brush the egg wash onto each cookie.
Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool completely on a wire rack.
Yield: Approximately 2 dozen dog biscuits using a 2 inch cookie cutter.
Storing: These chicken broth dog biscuits bake hard and will last 4 weeks in the refrigerator or 6 months in the freezer.

Try this for an easy, inexpensive dog biscuit recipe. My dogs loved it! I also add little scraps of meat, cheese or eggs and peanut butter to it.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix all ingredients together well. Roll out to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutter. Bake 35-40 minutes, let cool and store in tightly sealed container.

Mix all ingredients together; roll out to 1/2 inch thick. Use cookie cutter or glass to shape biscuits. Bake 10-12 minutes or until bottom is golden brown at 350 degrees F. Remove from cookie sheet and let cool. Store in covered container. (Actually for dogs)

I have to ask if all that sodium in the bouillon is good for a dog? (11/08/2005)
