Best in Breed DIY Dog Biscuits

Here's a great DIY recipe we found on, have fun making these for your pups and enjoy!

Best of Breed Dog Biscuits.

Preheat the oven to 300°F. Lightly grease a couple of baking sheets, or line them with parchment.

Put the following in a mixing bowl:

2 cups King Arthur White Whole Wheat Flour or Premium Whole Wheat Flour 1 cup rolled oats, regular or quick 1 tablespoon dried parsley or 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley 1/2 cup Baker’s Special Dry Milk or nonfat dry milk 1/2 teaspoon salt

Stir to combine.

Add 2 large eggs and 1 cup (9 1/4 ounces) peanut butter, crunchy or plain.

Stir to combine; the mixture will be crumbly.

Add 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon cold water, or enough to make a cohesive dough. Depending on the season, you may need to add a bit more (winter), or a bit less (summer).

To make dog cookies, drop the dough in walnut-sized balls onto a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet. Flatten to about 1/4” thick.

I’ve used the pusher tool from a Cuisinart food processor, which makes a nice imprint on top.

To cut out dogbone biscuits, roll the dough about 1/4” thick. No, it’s not pretty; it’ll develop cracks all over, and very ragged edges. No worries; trust me, your dog won’t care about looks.

Cut with a 3 1/2” cutter (or the size of your choice). Gather and re-roll the scraps, and continue to cut biscuits until you’ve used all the dough.

Lay the biscuits close together on the prepared baking sheets. Since the biscuits don’t include any leavening (baking powder, yeast, etc.), they won’t spread much.

Bake the biscuits for about 40 to 60 minutes, baking the smaller cookies for the shorter amount of time, the larger biscuits for the longer amount of time.

When finished, the biscuits will be dark golden brown, and will be dry and crisp all the way through.

And yes, it’s OK to break one open and taste it. If it’s good enough for Man’s Best Friend, it’s good enough for you!

I only baked the round cookies in the center for about 25 minutes; they should have baked longer. They were somewhat soft inside. No worries; if you find your biscuits are soft, just store them in the fridge, and use them up sooner.
