Dog Biscuits

Taking a finger walk through my overstuffed recipe box brings back lots of good memories. Today I spotted this recipe for "Dog Biscuits" that my sister gave me about 25 years ago.  I made the biscuits for our dog, then people started asking for them, and then I sold them at a few craft shows.  The hardest part was rolling out the dough and cutting the biscuits with a bone shaped cookie cutter.  Wow, that was a lot of work for a few bucks.  Once the kiddo's came along, our poor puppy didn't get any more home baked biscuits :(  If you are feeling adventurous, these make great gifts for your canine friends. 

Dog Biscuits

Mix and let sit 5 minutes:
1/4 cup warm water
8 chicken boullion cubes
1 package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1 1/2 cup tomato juice

In a seperate container mix:

2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups wheat germ
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon garlic seasoning

Add the yeast mixture then knead until combined and makes a smooth ball.  Roll dough on floured surface and cut with a cookie cutter.  On greased cookie sheet, bake at 300 degrees F. for 1 hour, turn oven off, then let sit in oven for 4 hours.
