1 t. sugar
1/3 cup shortening
1 egg slightly beaten
1chicken bouillon, cube disolved in1/2 c. hot water)
Mix dry ingredients, cut in shortening, then stir in egg, then stir in the buillon. When all is moistened, form dough into a ball and knead on floured board 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Roll out the dough to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes you want (little rectangles would do). Arrange on a microwave safe plate and microwave at 50% (medium) for 5 to 10 minutes (I do 5 minutes), or until firm and dry to the touch. Rotate plate every 2 minutes and turn shapes over half way through the cooking time. Cool on a wire rack (I just use paper towel!). Shapes will crisp as they cool.

Dog Biscuits
3 1/2 cups flour, all-purpose
2 cups flour, whole-wheat
1 cup flour, rye
1 cup cornmeal
2 cup cracked wheat -(bulgur)
1/2 cup dry milk powder -(non-fat)
4 teaspoons salt
2 cups chicken stock
1/4 oz dry yeast, active -(one package)
1 egg
1 tablespoon milk
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Combine, in a big bowl, the flours, cornmeal, milk powder and salt. In a separate bowl, dissolve yeast in about 1/4 cup lukewarm water; let it sit for a few minutes, until it bubbles. Add the chicken stock to the yeast mixture. Mix well. Add the liquid to the dry ingredients. Knead about 3 minutes. The dough should be stiff. Flour a board with cornmeal and roll out the dough to a thickness of about 1/4 inch. Cut out biscuits with cookie cutters in appropriate shapes, and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Mix the egg and milk and use to brush tops of biscuits (for shine), then bake the biscuits for 45 minutes at 300 degrees F. Turn off the heat and leave biscuits in the oven overnight. This will make the biscuits bone-hard. Though these are intended for dogs, people find them better tasting than many health foods.
* Homemade meatless dog biscuits -- This strange and wonderful recipe appeared in our hometown paper's consumer column, for making doggie Christmas presents! Although they are meatless, they are not vegetarian, as they contain chicken broth. However, your dog is quite unlikely to be a strict vegetarian.
Yield: Several dozen.
* These make a dandy birthday or Christmas present for your favorite friend's dog.

Dog Bisquits
3/4 cup hot water or meat juices
1/3 cup margarine
1/2 cup powdered milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon sugar
1 egg; beaten
3 cups whole wheat flour
Pour hot water or juice over margarine. Add powdered milk, salt, sugar, and egg. Gradually add flour, about 1/2 C. at a time till you have a stiff dough. Knead 3-4 minutes. Roll out 1/2" thick and cut into shapes. Bake in 325 degree oven for 50 minutes. P.S. I use a food processor with plastic blade.

Glazed Dog Biscuits
1 envelope dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1 pinch sugar
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups cracked wheat; or
1 cups cornmeal & 1 cup rye flour

1/2 cup nonfat dry milk
4 teaspoons kelp powder
4 cups beef or chicken broth
1 large egg
2 tablespoon milk
Place 2 oven racks in the upper & lower thirds of the oven. Preheat oven to 300. Sprinkle the dry yeast or crumble the compressed yeast over the water (110F if dry, 100F if compressed). Add the pinch of sugar & allow yeast to sit in a draft-free spot for 10-20 min. The mixture should be full of bubbles. If not, the yeast is too old to be useful. Stir well to dissolve the yeast. In a large bowl place all the dry ingredients & stir well to blend them. Add the yeast mixture & 3 c broth. Using your hands, in the bowl, mix to form the dough, adding more broth if needed to make the dough smooth & supple. Half a batch at a time, knead the dough briefly on a lightly floured counter. (Keep the 2nd batch of dough covered with a moist towel while shaping and cutting the first.) Roll out the dough into 18 x 13 x 1/4-inch rectangle. Cut into desired shapes using 3 1/2 inch bone cutter or 2 1/2 inch cookie cutter. Reroll the scraps. Repeat procedure with remaining dough.
For an attractive shine - lightly beat together the egg and the milk. Brush the glaze on the cookies. Bake for 45 - 60 minutes or until brown & firm. For even baking, rotate the cookie sheets from top to bottom 3/4 of the way thru the baking period. Use a small, angled metal spatula to transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temp. -cracked wheat & kelp are available at most health food stores -Use 2 cups of bran cereal (not flakes) in place of the cracked wheat, if desired. If your dog is large, make larger cookies Allow the cookie sheets to cool completely before using for the next batch. Distribute cookies evenly around sheet.

Mr. Food's Doggie-Bone Treats

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup nonfat dry milk
3 tablespoons vegetable shortening
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/3 cup water

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine both flours, wheat germ, nonfat dry milk, shortening, brown sugar, and salt; mix until crumbly. Add the egg and water; mix well. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough until smooth. Using a rolling pin, roll out to a 1/2-inch thickness. Using a dog bone-shaped cookie cutter or a knife, cut out biscuits. Place on the cookie sheet and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
Note: I know dogs love these treats because we tested them with real dogs, who couldn't get enough of them! And don't worry if the kids (or even adults) get into them. They're perfectly edible - but not very tasty - for humans. Of course, beware of any of your dog's possible allergies to wheat, eggs, or dairy products.
Yields: about 1 dozen biscuits

1 ripe banana
4 oz. plain or vanilla yogurt
2 oz. water

Whirl all together in a
blender til smooth, then put

the small size "Dixie Cups".
