Dog Treats

Revised, 3-2017

During an emergency don’t forget about your dog’s treats, after all they are just like kids and live for cookies. A day may come when money is scarce or we are in the worst of times and the dog may have to live without treats. Well maybe not, these dog biscuits are very easy and quick to make using white All Purpose flour from your stored foods. Young children would love this as a baking project. Actually, this is similar to hardtack recipe from the Confederate days only with a little sugar added.

3 cups of milled whole wheat flour (2 cups of kernels milled)
1 tbs sugar
1 tsp salt
3 cubes beef bullion
9 oz water
1/3 cup oil

Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl then add the water, mix and knead into a stiff dough.

Roll the dough ball to about a 1/4 inch thickness. Place entire rolled piece of dough onto a greased cookie sheet.

Use a pizza cutter or a knife and cut into ½ x 1-inch rectangles or a size appropriate for your dog. Leave the dough alone after cutting, they will easily break apart when baked.

Bake at 400f degrees for about 25 minutes, centers may be soft.

To make crunchy throughout, reduce temperature to about 225f for 1-3 hours. During this drying time remove a couple treats every hour and cool them then test for soft centers or crunchiness. This may only take 1 hour or maybe 3 or more depending on the thickness of the treat.
