Dog Biscuits

dog bics1For the last few years I’ve been making these biscuits for my parents dog Charley for Christmas. He’s a fussy little beggar but he seems to really like these! I usually put them in a jar and they will last for several weeks that way.

Dog Biscuits

200ml Very hot water (not boiling or you may burn yourself)

80g soft butter or spread

65g milk powder

1/2 tsp salt

2 tsp granulated sugar

1 beaten egg

435g wholewheat flour

Preheat your oven to 170°C (fan 150°C) GM3

Dog bics cutoutsPlace the butter in a large bowl pour over the water and stir briefly with a wooden spoon. Add the milk powder, salt, sugar & egg. Then add about a third of the flour mix well, then add half of the remaining flour and mix again, then the rest of the flour. Bring the mixture together with your hands and knead for 3-4 minutes on the work surface.

Shape into a ball then flour your work surface and roll out the dough until it’s 1cm-1.5cm in thickness. Cut out the shapes with cookie cutters and place on a greased/lined baking tray.


Bake for 30-40 minutes (depending on the size you cut) until they are firm to the touch and starting to turn golden.

Cool on a rack then bag up or place in a jar. The bone shaped cookie cutter I used was approx 7cm at the widest part and I made 18 biscuits with this quantity of dough. Hope your dog enjoys them! ♥
