  • In a medium bowl, stir together the whole wheat flour, powdered milk, wheat germ, and beef bouillon granules. Stir in the bacon grease and egg. Add ice water 1 tablespoon at a time until dough is wet enough to stick together. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/2 inch thickness and cut with cookie cutters. Place biscuits 1 inch apart onto an ungreased baking sheet.

  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm. Cool before serving.

My Corgi goes after these biscuits like she was starved (believe me she isn't). I made the mistake of putting them in a zip lok bag and they became soft and almost mouldy. Now I put them in a brown bag and all is well Read More

You can replace the bacon grease with canola oil and just brush the top of the baked treats with a little of the bacon grease. They still love them but the treats are much healthier. Read More

I asked my vet about the garlic. It is such small amount it will not hurt your dog. Plus fleas hate garlic! Read More

Crispy and toasty tasting. All I can say is: WOW!! Since we have 2 dogs I wanted to double the recipe (and since they're going so fast I'm glad I did!) I only had 4.5 cups of whole wheat flour so I added 1/2 cup of self-rising yellow cornmeal to equal the 5 cups called for and since we had baked ham for dinner last night I trimmed off the fat cut it into little bits and rendered fat from it on top of the stove in a pan on medium-low instead of using the bacon fat. Since the fat rendered was a little under the amount of fat called for I added some vegetable oil and then mixed in the crispy left-over bits of ham fat into the dough too! Our dogs have been following me around all morning for more of these treats! These will be baked up for our friend's dogs as Christmas presents this year! One hint though after you cut the treats ( I used a round cutter that was 1 inch in diameter) use the flat bottom of a bowl to flatten out the treats to a thinner treat (1/4 inch) and extend the baking time to 40 minutes to make them crispier. After placing the cut out cookies to the baking sheet and into the oven I gathered up the remaining dough added a drop or two of water mixed it in to the dough sprinkled a little more flour on the counter and rolled out the dough again and continued to do this until the last bit of dough was used! OUR DOGS CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF THESE!! Five Stars! Read More

A good recipe. It turned out well and my dog loved them. Not a crumb was left! Next time I think I'll try using olive oil instead of the bacon fat since I always have olive oil on hand but usually don't have bacon grease. Read More
