Buddy Biscuits

So I'm moseying around Cost Plus World Market earlier today, where I also picked up some sparkly apple-green earrings, when I came across a kit for making your own dog biscuits. I know I'm strange, but I've been wanting to make dog biscuits for a while, and this kit would be easy and give me the bone-shaped cookie cutter I've needed. And for only $5, how could I pass it up?

Buddy Biscuits!

Inside the burlap bag is a plastic bag with the mix (whole wheat flour, unbleached white flour, dried cheese, lecithin, rosemary powder, and parsley flakes) and the instructions for cooking. You add a cup of warm water and two tablespoons of vegetable oil, then mix and knead.

Then you roll the dough out to 1/4" and use the cookie cutter to make a ton of biscuits. Its supposed to make 48, but I didn't count how many I ended up with.

Cutting out the biscuits

Then you bake them in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes, flip and bake for another 15 minutes. I cut the baking time by ten minutes on each side and they turned out great! The dogs love them!

I tried part of one - they taste like crackers and not cheesy at all. They remind me of Wheat Thins. At least now I have the cookie cutter and can experiment making dog cookies. I'm going to have some well-fed pooches!
