Vegetarian Dog Biscuits

2 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup dry milk powder
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tbs. brown sugar
2 vegetable bouillon cubes, dissolved in 3/4 cup boiling water
1/2 cup carrots (optional)
1 egg

Preheat oven to 300F. Mix all ingredients into a ball and roll out to about 1/4" thick. Cut with bone-shaped cookie cutter, or strips, or a cutter shape of your own choice. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake 30 minutes at 300F.

 


In a food processor, mix 1 lb. (or a little more) beef liver, 2 eggs, 2 tbsp. oil, 1 tsp. garlic powder (or more if they like it), a handful of ground bacon bits (optional), and 1/2 cup instant powdered milk (optional). Mix for a full 5 minutes, until mixture resembles thick malted milk.

In another large bowl, mix 3 cups whole wheat flour - a little more if the mixture is too juicy - 1/2 cup pure powdered cheese, available from a health food store.

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease two cookie sheets.

Mix the two mixtures together, using a spatula or wooden spoon. It will be fairly gooey, so don't use your hands yet. Please note that you will want to clean the food processor very thoroughly
NOW as the liver dries very fast.

From now on, when working with the mixture, keep your hands slightly wet so the dough won't stick. Divide dough into two parts and spread it evenly on two cookie sheets. Run a knife across the dough to score the dough in half-inch widths. Then run the knife around the edge of the pan so the dough doesn't stick to the sides.

Put pans in oven and cook for exactly 20 minutes. Take out and use a spatula to lift the dough from each pan in one piece. Then, with a knife score the cookies lengthways. Cool for at least 10 minutes before breaking the cookies into 1/2 inch squares and place in a large bowl to air dry.

When completely cool, place in freezer bags and store in the freezer. Take one bag out at a time from the freezer as needed and refrigerate. Note that the dogs do not like the cookies cold or frozen. For a crunchier cookie, set cookies out in a bowl for a day or so.
