Chicken-Honey Dog Treats
THEME: JUST FOR PETS RECIPES
- 2½ t. dry yeast*
- ¼ cup lukewarm water
- 1 egg
- ¾ cup chicken broth
- ¼ cup honey
- 3 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 cup cracked wheat (see cook’s note)
Preheat oven to 325 F. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in lukewarm water. Add egg, broth and honey. Gradually blend in the flour and cracked wheat. Add enough wheat flour to form a stiff dough. Add additional water if necessary. Transfer to a floured surface and knead until smooth, about 3-5 minutes. Shape the dough into a ball and roll to a ¼-inch thickness. Using bone-shaped cookie cutters, cut out biscuits. Place on ungreased baking sheets, spacing them about ¼-inch apart. Bake for 45 minutes. Let cool overnight. Makes several dozen. They freeze well.
*Uncooked yeast-based products should never be fed to pets because they are harmful to their digestive system.
