I made these dog biscuits (no they're not made from dog or in the shape of a dog Rod) from a recipe sent to me by Snuva. I had no problems with a crumbly mix or the bacon bits being hard to get the cutter through like Snuva did because what I actually did was put the bacon bits into the stock fluid first before adding the flour, egg, oil etc. I also added a 2nd egg after reading Snuva's comments about a crumbly/dry mixture. Mine look a different colour to hers and I didn't have a bone shaped cutter so used cat, pig and person ones (sent to me by nocas, thanks Ana).
1 beef stock cube (I used 2)
1/2 cup hot water
2 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 3.5 oz jar bacon flavoured bits (my jar was 75 g)
1 tablespoon brown sugar (I used raw brown sugar)
1 egg (I used 2)
Preheat oven to 150
In medium sized bowl, break up stock cube and dissolve in hot water. Add the bacon bits to soften. Add other ingredients and stir until blended.
On a lightly floured surface using a rolling pin, roll out dough to 1/8" thick (I thought that was too thin, just did it to what seemed a reasonable thickness)
Cut out into little shapes with cookie cutters.
Place onto baking paper (I didn't have any so lightly greased the tray instead) and bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until firm.
Cool on a wire rack.
These were a hit with my 2 dogs Ceri and Dimi. Doggy seal of approval.
Snuva made a batch for the RSPCA cupcake day fundraising.
