I changed some things with this recipe but it's a good base. I cut the shortening down to 3 tablespoons omitted the salt and used 1 jar of beef baby food instead of the ground pork. Pork allergies are common in dogs and they also don't have a taste for salt like humans do. Instead of the water and dry milk I used 1/2 cup of 1% milk since that's all I had on hand. Also don't bother putting them 2 inches apart on the cookie sheets... I pack mine on there almost touching. They do not expand during baking they shrink if anything. My Patterdale Terrier went bonkers for these!:)
This is absolutely the best dog biscuit recipe. My dog loved it and so did my friends' dogs. In an albeit not too scientific experiment my dog chose this biscuit over cooked chicken and store bought dog biscuits. I thought the ground meat was going to be messy but it wasn't at all. I did leave the biscuits in the turned-off oven overnight to dry them up. My dog gained 4lbs in two weeks after I made her these because she wanted them so much that I kept on feeding her. I tried all the other dog biscuit recipes on this website and this is by far the best.
I BAKE EVERYDAY AND SOME OF THOSE DAYS ARE MAKING DOG TREATS. THESE WENT OVER AS ONE OF THEIR FAVOTITES ( GERMAN SHEPARD BLACK LAB TN WHATCHAMACALLIT DOG AND A NEW DACHSHUND PUPPY). THE ONLY THING THAT I CHANGED WAS TO USE BABY FOOD ( BEEF CHICKEN ) FROM JARS IN PLACE OF THE MEAT. IT WORKS OUT GREAT. YOU REALLY ONLY NEED ONE ( 2.5 OZ. )JAR BUT I USED TWO. DO AS MANY AS YOU WANT JUST ADJUST THE AMOUNT OF FLOUR. I ALSO PUT SOME CHOPPED PARSLEY IN A COUPLE OF TABLESPOONS IS PLENTY TO HELP THEIR " DOGGEY " BREATH.
Fabulous recipe!! My dogs asked for hunks of the dough while I was making them and loved that too. They wait by the oven until it dings and then dance for the treat!! The question was should they be frozen or refridgerated. I asked the All Recipes Staff and here is their answer: We recommend that you freeze your dog treats if you don't think they will be consumed within a few days. The fat in the beef can get old fairly quickly. If your dog does not like cold treats heat them in the microwave for about 15 seconds. Thanks for your feedback to the Allrecipes.com(r) network. Great Staff great recipe!! BJ

My dogs (poi maltese and labs) really love these biscuits. I usually buy 1/2 lb. of ground beef when it's on sale at the market and fry it up after I've cooked bacon thus eliminating most or all the shortening. I crumble a beef bouillon cube into the hot mixture after it has cooked and mix well. I cut out hearts and call them my California Hearts. Usually I cut out a pan of mini hearts and 3 pans of the regular size. They are wonderful! I do store them in the fridge. However one time I found a package in a tote bag after a month and it seemed ok. I really like these.
I made these today with the following modifications: for the meat I used 1 jar of chicken w/gravy baby food and 1 jar of chicken w/vegetable... Threw in a teas. peanut butter and T of shredded cheese. No salt no boullion... I also didn't have milk powder so I used milk and less water... I know the recipe is quite different but hey she loved them!:)
