Transcript:Homemade Dog Biscuits

Hi, Cliff Wildman here with About.com. Today I'm going to show you how to make homemade dog biscuits. This is an easy cheap and fun recipe and you're dogs will be really happy to have a fresh treat afterwards.

Dog Biscuit Ingredients

For this recipe we'll need three quarters cup of chicken broth, 3 cups of whole wheat flour, a quarter cup of lukewarm water, one teaspoon of dry yeast, one tablespoon of garlic, one tablespoon of parsley, a tablespoon and a half of honey and one egg.

Mix Dog Biscuit Ingredients Together

First, pre-heat the oven to three hundred and fifty degrees. Take the quarter cup of water and dissolve the yeast in it. Once that is dissolved, we'll add the parsley the garlic, then pour in the chicken broth, the honey and the egg and mix that all up. Once those ingredients are mixed up, well we're going to gradually blend in the flour - we want to get this to the consistency of a thick dough, like you're making a loaf of bread.

Roll Out and Shape the Dough

Now flour the countertop and we'll knead the dough for about 3 to 5 minutes. And now we're going to roll the dough out - roll it out to about a quarter of inch thick. Now I have a bone shaped cookie cutter, so I can make the classic dog treat, but you can really use any cookie cutter you have. So now I'll cut out the dog treats and you'll take the unused dough here, roll it back out and cut again until you've used these all up.

Bake the Dog Biscuits

I'm going to lay these on an unbaked cooking sheet, about a quarter inch apart from each other. Bake these at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. You can bake these a little bit longer, you're looking for a nice golden texture all the way across the biscuit. And finally we'll need to let these cool a little while. I suggest at least a couple of hours but you can leave them out up to overnight.

Treat Your Dog

Your dogs are going to love these. Mine went nuts over them compared to the packaged store bought treats we usually get them.
