    i am looking for a good Dog Treat Recipe. Everyone in my family has a dog or dogs and I thought about making some dog treats for their pets for Christmas.

    If you have one post it here.

    I'd like one that you bake in the oven like cookies.

    This is one I have made.

    Everyday Biscuits

    2 teaspoons dry yeast
    1/2 cup lukewarm water
    2 tablespoons dry parsley
    2 tablespoons minced garlic 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
    3 tablespoons honey
    1 egg
    5-6 cups whole wheat flour

    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 350 ° F (180 ° C).

    In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in the parsley, garlic, broth, honey, and egg. Gradually blend in flour, adding enough to form a stiff dough.

    Transfer to a floured surface and knead until smooth (about 3-5 minutes). Shape the dough into a ball, and roll to 1/4-inch (6 mm) thick. Using small bone-shaped cookie cutters, make biscuits! Transfer to ungreased baking sheets, spacing them about 1/4 inch (6 mm) apart. Gather up the scraps, roll out again, and cut additional biscuits.

    Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and turn over. Bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until lightly browned on both sides. Let cool overnight. (After we finish baking all batches of biscuits, we turn off the oven, then spread all the biscuits out on one baking sheet and set them in the oven to cool overnight. The extra time in the oven as it cools off helps make the treats crispier and crunchier.)

    Makes several dozen small bones that keep and freeze well

    I'll have to try that one Terrie. Haven't tried one with parsley and honey. I don't suppose it would hurt to throw in some carrots as well. They [​IMG] carrots!

    ^^^ I gifted my girlfriends 5 Mastiffs at a Holiday Party last night and they ALL loved these treats.
    I'm making more today for my coworkers that I don't so much like anymore.
    I can genuinely feel good about giving their dog a treat and stay true to myself, and not give unkind people gifts because of tradition.
