  • In a large bowl, stir together the whole wheat flour, cornmeal and salt. Mix in the oil, egg and water to make a soft dough that is not too sticky. You may add more flour if needed. Roll teaspoonfuls of dough into balls, and place on the prepared cookie sheet. Flatten slightly.

  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until nicely browned and firm. Cool completely, then store in an airtight container.

My dog loves these treats! I lined up all of her treats and she chose one of these! I added a few tablespoons of parsly and garlic powder. I also added some peanut butter. I recommend cooking a lot longer to make a texture similar to other dog treats. Thanks for the recipe! UPDATE I have found that the shelf life of these treats are about 2 weeks or less. But don't let that stop you from trying this great recipe! Read More

I added a beef boulion cube to the hot water.My 15 week old shi-tsu loves them- cant get enough. They were easy to make and fast. However my German Shepard doesnt care for them at all- he took them in the yard and burried them. The rat terrier ate one- only because my shitsu had one.Maybe I will add another cube or two to the water next time. Read More

Four paws up from my Ridgeback who seems much more excited to get these treats than the ones from the store. I ended up with 100 treats making them about 1.5 inches around (along with some tiny Pomeranian bites too). I added peanut butter to the second half of the batch. Thanks for sharing this easy no roll recipe! UPDATE: In case you're new at this I wanted to remind people that these treats will get moldy since they have no preservatives. Keep a close eye out so your pooch doesn't get sick! My frozen treats have thawed out quite nicely. Read More

Love this recipe! Read through all the reviews and ended up adding reduced sodium beef broth instead of water a dash of garlic (for the fleas) then a dash of parsley (for their breath). Mixed in a touch of food coloring for red and green Christmas Canine Cookies! This is a great BASE recipe for your pup - I am going to add some peanut butter next time (salt-free of course)!

My basset hound loves these! I omitted the salt and substituted fat free low sodium chicken broth for the water. I put the dough in the fridge for about 10-20 minutes and then took it out pressed the dough into a cookie sheet and then used cookie cutters to make Christmas trees and stars. I simply peeled away the extra dough and pressed it into another cookie sheet and repeated the process. The biscuits are really cute! I took them to a cookie swap for girlfriends with dogs and I gave some to my vet for Christmas (along with people cookies!) A recipe! Read More

My chihuahua/terrier mix is going WILD for these. I added a chicken bullion and some cheddar cheese. I break them into smaller pieces for training. I even made some in long skinny shapes to fit in his Kong! Read More

This was really easy. I liked that you didnt have to roll out the dough and cut with cookie cutters this was much quicker. I rolled into balls and let my 2 1/2yr old press them with a fork(like for pb cookies)Instead of veg. oil I used bacon grease and instead of water I used meat drippings...I have a george foreman grill and I usually save the juice to pour over the dogs food. I also added 1/2t garlic powder. I'm not sure if I'll put in the whole tablespoon of salt next time...not sure why it needed so much. I would never use that much in a recipe for people. Anyway..my dog loved the cookies. We will make again for sure. Read More
