The Best Cookies You’ll Never Eat

by Heather on January 7, 2011

I know you guys are wondering, “What the heck?  This girl uses butter, sugar, bacon, and flour in amounts so obscene she needs massive glass jars just to hold it all!  What’s not to like?”


Like I said, I know.  It felt weird for me to bake cookies that I would never eat.  Cookies with lots of beef broth and cornmeal.  Cookies with yeast thrown in the mix.  It was weird.  But I did it.


I did it for love.

See?  After seeing that recipe aren’t you GLAD that I warned you ahead of time? :)

So, getting down to business here, dog biscuits are super easy to make using this recipe.  Mix all the dry ingredients then pour in the broth.  Voila!  Doneskies!

Well, that is unless you live at a high altitude…then you have to add some extra flour to the mix to make it roll-able.  Otherwise you should be good to go!  Just ignore your dogs hanging out in the kitchen, drooling all over your legs.  You can always shower, and you’re doing it for love.





The recipe came with a really cute cookie cutter set that I got for Christmas, but you could certainly just roll the dough out and cut it into squares if you don’t have a cookie cutter.  I promise your dogs (or your neighbor’s dogs or whoever’s dogs you’re baking these for) won’t care what shape they’re in as long as they can eat them.


And eat them they will!

Just ask the critics!  Don’t these faces look like they know a thing or two about dog biscuits?

Don’t let them fool you…they’re connoisseurs!

And that whole drooling-on-my-leg thing?  Yep, didn’t make that one up.  But that’s how you know it’s good ;)

Happy Friday y’all!

15 Rebekah January 7, 2011

We have 5 rescue dogs – I have been wanting to make them some homemade goodies – these look perfect and I can look forward to the leg drool and happy munching that will follow! :)


16 Heather January 7, 2011

17 Natalie January 7, 2011

18 Heather January 7, 2011

19 Dorry January 7, 2011

You are the best mama to those pups! Lucky dogs. :)

Happy Friday!


20 steph January 7, 2011

Let’s be real – did you try one?? I have a friend that has no shame in admitting she has tried a dog treat of two and I always just laugh. Cool idea though!

My beast has a sensitive stomach so there’s not a lot I can give him, but show him a Greenie and he’ll do tricks in hyper speed without any commands (shake, shake, lay down, roll over, sit back up and puppy eyes).


21 Heather January 7, 2011

ha! no i did not…but i have tried other treats of theirs before ;)


22 Shanna, like Banana January 7, 2011

What a good dog mommy you are!

My dog would go nuts for these I’m sure =)


23 Heidi January 7, 2011

I love making homemade dog biscuits for my dog, Winston! Over the Christmas holiday I made some peanut butter flavored ones and he loves them! I’ll definitely try your recipe.


24 Heather January 7, 2011

ooooh, what’s that recipe? we could save a ton of money making our own doggy treats!


25 Mauimandy@The Grains of Paradise January 7, 2011

26 janetha January 7, 2011

27 Lisa @ Thrive Style January 7, 2011

Cute doggies! I love the idea of making dog treats…I’m sure they can tell how much you love them :)


28 Megan January 7, 2011

I haven’t made my dog any treats in ages. I know he would sure like these!


29 snackgirlgoeshealthy January 7, 2011

I think its so adorable to make them little treats! :)


30 sassymom January 7, 2011

Somehow, I knew those wouldn’t just get tossed in a drawer and never used! So glad you/they liked them! (You=the cookie cutters and recipe; the pups=the treats!) Have a great weekend! Hugs!!!!!


31 This Italian Family January 7, 2011
