FLEA FIGHTER FINGERS
This dough is very easy to handle. It makes a nice, dark biscuit and helps your pet repel fleas because of the presence of brewer’s yeast. Makes about 100 small cookies.
2 beef bouilon cubes ( I add 4 to combat the brewer’s yeast)
1 3/4 cups boiling water
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup rye flour
1 cup quick cooking rolled oats
1 cup cornmeal, stone ground
1/4 cup brewer’s yeast ( debittered)
2 tbps garlic powder ( I double this to combat brewers yeast.)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 egg well beaten
1. In a 2 cup measuring cup, dissolve bouillon cubes in boiling water and set aside until at room temperature.
2. In a large mising bowl, combine dry ingredients. Make a well in the flour mixture and gradually stir in oil, egg and bouillon until well blended.
3. Divide dough into 2 balls, so it is easy to work with. Knead each dough ball on a floured surface, about 3-4 minutes. With rolling pin, roll dough to between 1/4 and 1/2 “ thickness. Cut into bite size pieces or use cookie cutter.
4. Line baking sheet with foil. Bake 1 1/2 hours at 300 F. Cool on rack until hard and store at room temperature, in a container with a loose fitting lid.
My dogs (Nessie and Fritzie ) enjoy my additions to this
recipe. Without the doubling of beef cubes and garlic
they did eat them, but prefer the extra taste ones.
It seems to hide the brewer’s yeast.
I have gourmet dogs,who prefer people cookies
to Milk Bone ones.
