Homemade treats for your dog

These make PERFECT gifts for giving that special pet or a friends special pet. You can get a tin and line with colored tissue paper, then layer the treats inside. You can make up a cute label on your computer with the Dog's name on it and Doggie Treats as a title or go to your local craft store and get some clear cellophane bags, place dog treats inside, tie bag with pretty colored ribbon.

I hope that your dogs love these as much as mine do. Dogs are man's best friend, they love you unconditionally and ask no questions. They are a member of your family and you love them very much so it's OK to Pamper and Spoil them.

3/4 cup flour (wheat preferably)
1 egg
2 Tbs honey
2 Tbs peanut butter
1/4 Cup Vegetable Shortening
1 Tsp baking soda
1/4 Tsp salt
1/4 cup oatmeal
1/2 Tsp Vanilla
In a large glass bowl, heat honey and peanut butter in the microwave until runny. About 20 seconds, depending on your microwave. Next add all other remaining ingredients together and mix well. Dough will be thick. Drop onto an UN-greased cookie sheet by 1/2 teaspoons.
Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. If you have a bigger dog, make these by the teaspoon.
3-1/2 Cups White All Purpose Flour
1 Cup Corn Meal
1/4 Cup Milk
1 Package Unflavored Gelatin
1/4 Cup Corn Oil
1 Egg
1 3-1/2 Oz. Jar Strained Beef Baby Food
1 Beef Bouillon Cube
3/4 Cup Boiling Water
Dissolve Bouillon cube in boiling water. Sift your dry ingredients together
in a large glass bowl. Add milk, egg, oil, and beef baby food and beef
bouillon. Stir until well mixed. Dough will be thick. Roll out on a
floured surface to 1/4" thickness. Cut in 1/4 inch strips by 3" strips,
twisting each stick 3 turns before placing on cookie sheet. Bake 35 to 40
minutes at 400 degrees. These can be stored in refrigerator.
1-1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
1-1/2 Cups Bisquick
1/2-Cup Fresh Mint Leaves-lightly packed
1/4 Cup Milk
4 Tbs Margarine
1 Egg
1/2 Tbs Maple or Corn Syrup
Combine all of your ingredients into a food processor. Process until well
mixed. A large ball will form. Pour out dough on a floured surface and roll
out to a thickness of 1/4" to 1/2". Cut into 1" x 2" strips or use
different shaped cookie cutters or dog bone cookie cutters.
Place biscuits on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees or until lightly browned. Cool and store in an airtight container
LIVER TREATS (these make the house smell terrible but the dogs LOVE them!)
1 Pound Liver (Beef or Chicken)
1-1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
1 Cup Cornmeal
1 Egg
1/2 Tsp Garlic Powder
Chop up the liver and put it in a blender and blend slightly. Add remaining ingredients and blend well. Spray a flat cookie sheet with PAM and pour mixture in it. Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes. Take out of oven and cut into squares while warm. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator.
(I sometimes add ground carrots to the mixture and thicken it by adding more flour then drop by teaspoons/tablespoons onto the greased cookie sheet)
1-1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
1 Cup oatmeal
1 Cup Oat Bran
2 TPS Baking Soda
1 TPS Cinnamon
1 Egg Slightly Beaten
1/4 Cup Honey
3 TBS Vegetable Oil
3/4 Cup Milk
Apples/banana's blended together
Shredded zucchini and carrots
Shredded cheddar/jack cheese
Cooked chicken
Mix all dry ingredients in a large glass bowl. In a separate bowl mix egg, honey and oil. Mix the milk with the dry ingredients blending well. At this point you can mix your OPTIONAL ingredients into the honey mixture, then mix the honey mixture with the flour/milk batter. Line a muffin tin with paper/foil muffin form. Pour mixture into each Muffin paper about 1/2 full. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes at 425 degrees. Cool.
These can be placed in an airtight container and placed in your freezer.
Mix together
3 1/2 cups unbleached flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup skim milk powder
1 tablespoon (or 1 package) dry yeast
3 1/2 cups lukewarm chicken or meat broth
Dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm chicken or meat broth. The richer this broth is, the better your dog will like the biscuits. Let yeast broth mixture set 10 min. Then stir in flour mixture. Roll resulting dough out 1/4" thick. Cut dog biscuit shapes from dough. Brush biscuits with egg wash. Bake on greased cookie sheets at 300* for 45 min. Then turn off oven and leave in overnight to finish hardening. Makes 60 medium-sized biscuits. recipe from a newsgroup post by: Jill Faerber May 28, 2000.

**Garlic and Onions can be toxic to dogs. Typically the problem is with large quantities not "seasoning portions". You should seek the advice of your veterinarian to find out if any garlic use is appropriate for your pet. If in doubt, leave the ingredient out.
