2 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup powdered milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
6 tablespoons vegetable oil
8-10 tablespoons water
2 small jars strained baby food (beef, chicken, lamb, or liver)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients together (except water) in a large bowl and stir until combined. Add the water in a tablespoon at a time until the dough comes together and is workable. It will be a little stick. Knead the dough for about 3 minutes until the dough is smooth. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 min.
Place the dough on a floured board. Roll out to about 1/4 inch thick.
Cut with bone-shaped cookie cutter and place biscuits on an un-greased baking sheet.
Makes approximately 2 dozen doggie biscuits. Please note that 3" dog treats are pretty large. You may want to use a smaller cutter if you have a smaller dog.
Storing Dog Treats
In general you should store dog treats the same way you would homemade people cookies. That being said, there are two main variables that determine storage time - the amount and type of fat in the recipe and your local weather conditions. If your recipe uses fats such as butter, or meat bits or juices then it will be more prone to rancidity than a recipe that uses some vegetable oil or shortening. Your treats may mold or spoil much faster in humid or very hot climates.
Refrigeration and Freezing - Refrigeration will prolong the life of more fragile dog treats. Make sure to store in a tightly sealed container or zip lock bag. You can also freeze most treats in zip lock freezer bags. Allow to thaw completely before use.
