    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.

    But then
    I have gourmet dogs,who prefer people cookies
    to Milk Bone ones.

    PLAQUE BUSTER BISCUTS

    This biscut has a very hard, crunch texture that will help scape the build-up
    of plaque off your dog’s teeth. Makes about 70 cookies.


    3/4 cup Powdered skim milk

    1/2 cup Cornmeal, stone ground

    1/4 cup bulghar wheat (bulgar) - Looks like ground up sand
    Health food store should have it.

    2 1/4 cups Whole wheat flour

    1 cube chicken bouillon cube

    1 1/2 cups boiling water

    1 cup quick cooking rolled oats

    1 egg beaten


    1. In a mixing bowl, cobine powdered skim mild, cornmeal, bulghar wheat and
    flour and set aside.

    2. In a lare mixing bowl, dissolve bouillon cube in boiling water. Add rolled oats and let
    stand, about 5 minutes. Then stir in beaten egg.

    3. Gradually stir in dry ingredients, half a cup at a time, until well blended. The last few
    cupfuls, blend with your hands.

    4. Divide dough into 2 balls, Knead each dough ball on floured surface for about 5 minutes

    5. Roll out dough in 1/4” to 1/2” Thickness. Line baking sheet. Cut with cookie cutter or in
    pieces with knife.

    6. Bake 50 minutes at 325 F (160C).

    7. Turn oven off and let bisuits cool several hours or overnight in oven.

    8 Store at room temperatures in a container with loose fitting lid.


    WAN NA spoil your pet.

    XMAS PEANUT BUTTER

    HOLIDAY SHORTBREAD

    Dough is a little trick to work with at first, but makes a perfectly formed
    golden doggie shortbread. Makes about 55 cookies


    1 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Flour

    1/2 cup All Purpose Flour

    1 Tbsp Baking Powder

    1 cup Peanut Butter ( smooth or crunky)

    3/4 cup Milk


    1. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour and baking powder.

    2. In a small bowl, whisk peanut butter and milk until smooth.

    3. Make a well in the flour mixture until well blended.

    4. Use hands to work dough into 2 pliable balls. The warmth from your hands will help make the dough more workable.

    5. Knead each dough ball on a floured surface, about 2 minutes.

    6. With a rolling pin, roll out to 1/4” and 1/2” Thickness.

    7. Cut with cookie cutter. Line baking sheet with foil

    8. Bake 15 minutes a 400 F (200 C)

    9. Cool on rack and store in sealed, plastic bags in the refrigerator.

    Thank you so much...I've wondered about making my own dog biscuits for years....ever since Providence was on tv....one of the characters baked doggie cookies and bars! I can't wait to try these....I just have to find bulgar and brewer's yeast. We make our own sorghum molasses here on the farm...that tastes so much better than blackstrap...I know my little LadyBug will love these.

    I found Brewers Yeast at the Drug Store/Pharmacy in the health food section.. Bulgar wheat was easy to find at a bulk food store and at my supermarket in the organic section. So far all the receipes I have tried, my Fritzie likes them. as for cats liking them, I think they would be too hard for them. Have fun making them. They all make up quick, but take a while to cook.

    They would make great Christmas gifts for your dog lovers and wouldn't be to expensive.

    Koda, Scrappy, and Patches are thrilled you thought of them. Now mom needs to get busy. Thanks for the recipes. Does anybody have any recipes for cat treats? The rest of the furbabies are asking.

    Holly and Heidi are both happy you sent these-particularly Heidi, since they have no poultry in them-she's so allergic!
