Milkbone Biscuits

Wanting to find something healthier for our dog, we decided to make our own doggie treats. These taste really good. I sampled one myself.

These biscuits only cost about .30 cents a pound. Just think how much money you'll save with healthy homemade treats, and the kids will have fun making these too.

Pamela made these tonight and we had a huge batch! Sheba loved them.

These biscuits are puppy tested, and mother approved!

Milk Bone Dog Biscuits

3/4 cup hot water
1/3 cup margarine
1/2 cup powdered milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
3 cups whole wheat flour

Variation: increase margarine to 1/2 cup and add 2 teaspoons sugar
In large bowl pour hot water over the margarine. Stir in powdered milk, salt, and egg. Add flour, 1/2 cup at a time. Knead for a few minutes to form stiff dough. Pat or roll to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into bone shapes. Bake at 325 degrees for 50 minutes. Cool. They will dry out quite hard. Makes about 1 1/4 pounds of biscuits.
