Doggie Bone Treats :
• 1 cup all-purpose flour
• 1 cup whole wheat flour
• 1/2 cup wheat germ
• 1/2 cup nonfat dry milk
• 3 tablespoons vegetable shortening
• 1 teaspoon brown sugar
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1 egg
• 1/3 cup water
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Coat a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine both flours, wheat germ, nonfat dry milk, shortening, brown sugar, and salt; mix until crumbly. Add the egg and water; mix well.
On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough until smooth. Using a rolling pin, roll out to a 1/2-inch thickness. Using a dog bone-shaped cookie cutter or a knife, cut out biscuits. Place on the cookie sheet and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Of course, beware of any of your dog's possible allergies to wheat, eggs, or dairy products.
NOTE: I know dogs love these treats because we tested them with real dogs, who couldn't get enough of them! And don't worry if the kids (or even adults) get into them. They're perfectly edible - but not very tasty - for humans.
