Homemade Dog Biscuits or Treats

 For the most part all of these recipes are for dog biscuits only.... but this first recipe was for babies/toddlers. 
I decided to make them for our new pup when he was small.... Need I say more! 
He just Loved them!

Teething Biscuits
2 cups whole wheat flour, plus extra, for rolling
1/4 cup skim milk powder (optional)
1/2 cup water, milk or apple juice
1/4 cup canola or other mild vegetable oil
1 large egg
Preheat oven to 350° F.
In a large bowl, stir together the flour and skim milk powder. In a small bowl whisk together the water, oil and egg; add to the dry ingredients and stir until well blended.
Gently knead the dough a few times on a lightly floured surface, and then roll it out 1/4″ – 1/2″ thick. Cut into desired shapes, in sizes suitable for your baby (ensure there are no sharp corners), with a cookie cutter or knife. Transfer to an ungreased cookie sheet and prick each a few times with a fork.
Bake for about 20 minutes, depending on the size and thickness of the cookies, until pale golden and firm. Turn the oven off but leave them inside for a few hours to harden as they cool.
Makes 2-3 dozen cookies, depending on their size. Store in a tightly sealed container.
 Note: regardless of what type of teething biscuit you choose, make sure you’re close by to keep an eye on your child – no teething biscuit is resistant to crumbling or breaking.

My grand daughter, Gracie and I were searching the other day for dog biscuit recipes, so she could make cookies for her puppy which is now 4 months old.  We found several recipes that we will try over the next couple of years.
