Well, I don't have any kids at home. I have a new mixer AND a new eating plan, so this gives me the satisfaction of baking for an appreciative audience! They NEVER complain! (Of course, they have been known to eat their own poop...)
This recipe came with the dog-bone cookie cutters I bought at Bella (www.bellabakercity.com). I saw them and thought they were a fun novelty. The recipe is easy, and I like knowing exactly what I'm feeding my dogs. There's no 'mystery product' or excess fats.

|Classic Christmas photo - they all look like I've just beaten them!|
• 1 cup rolled oats
• 1 cup unbleached white flour
• 1/2 cup corn meal
• 1/4 cup wheat germ
• 1 cup beef, chicken or vegetable stock
• 1/2 cup non-fat dry milk
• 1 egg, beaten
• 2 tsp. instant dry yeast
• 3 TB vegetable oil
• 2 TB molasses
• 1 tsp. salt
• 1 tsp. garlic powder
• 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped (OR 2 TB dried)
Mix in heavy duty mixer, food processor, or by hand. Knead in the last bit of flour by hand. Cover dough and let rest for 1 hour.
Heat oven to 300º.
Roll out dough until it's 3/8" - 1/2" thick. Cut into shapes with cookie cutters and place on a greased cookie sheet. Continue to do this until all cookies have been cut.
Bake for 1 hour, turn off the oven and let biscuits remain there for another hour until very hard. Keep in an airtight container...out of paw's reach.
Your dogs will thank you!
