2 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup powdered milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 egg
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.  

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.

Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 min.

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.

This is an easy recipe and turns out great.  I'm not a cook, but I had no problem making these at all and the dogs at the animal shelter loved them, and so did my own dogs.
My dogs LOVED this recipe. They were waiting at the oven for me to pull them out which they don't normally do when I'm cooking. I sold them at our local farmers market and from all the feed back I got, all but one dog loved them.
I am making this recipe again today! My Chihuahua/Doxie mix loves these. I have made 2 different types with cheese but he likes these the best. Super easy to make also.
My Maltese is over the moon on these treats!  I made them for her 7th birthday and she has never sat so diligently by the kitchen.  She knows she won't get people food so doesn't beg but these biscuits really got her attention... and they were easy!  L O V E
These were really easy to make.  I made  a half recipe and I got 6, 3" dog bone, 7, 2" rounds and 1, 3" dog paw.  Another neighborhood hit!
