Homemade Grandma Treats – My Favorite Dog Biscuit!
If you love easy to make dog biscuit recipes that are yummy, look no further! My grandma
has been making these treats for my siblings and me for almost 20 years. And we love them! They’re great treats for Samoyeds like me!
I know most of you are familiar with my diary entries, but I love these doggie treats so much that I asked my grandma Carole if I could share her famous homemade “Grandma Treat” recipe instead of doing a diary entry. And she said yes! Dog biscuit recipes make me happy. 🙂 The best thing about this particular recipe is that this one includes bacon grease. And you know how I feel about that. BACON!!! Woo-hoo!!
Here are the steps for this quick, easy, and barkilicious recipe!
Recipe for Homemade “Grandma Treats”
- 2-1/2 cups whole wheat flour (Grandma says to use regular, NOT white whole wheat)
- 1/2 cup dry milk
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 Tablespoon wheat germ
- 1 teaspoon beef bouillon granular (Grandma prefers to use a beef cube, crushed)
- 6 Tablespoons bacon grease
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup ice water
First, combine all of the dry ingredients. Next, add bacon grease, egg and ice water. Mix well. My grandma uses her KitchenAid – 4.5 Quart Stand Mixer and it goes in seconds.
Roll to desired thickness and cut into desired shape. Grandma uses a cookie cutter to shape them into dog bones, my personal favorite! But you could use any shape you want like a heart or something else. If you’ve got knife skills, you could also simply cut them into squares and/or rectangles by hand.
Baking and Storage
Then, bake them in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, turning over half way through the baking time. Grandma says to allow them to cool overnight in the oven (probably best to turn the oven off first 😉 ). Store in a dry container and Voila (I believe that’s French for “Awesome Doggie Treats!”)! Does NOT need refrigeration.
There you have it! Best doggie treats ever! And pretty simple to make too right? I mean if I didn’t have big, hairy, white paws and could grow an opposable thumb, I’ll bet even I could do it!
If you have any questions about the recipe, please leave them for me below. But more importantly, if you make these homemade dog biscuits, please come back and tell me what you think!
Until next time!
