Subject: Cookie Recipes



Having just made a disasterous dog biscuit mess, I was hoping we could exchange some recipes (tried and true) for dog biscuits, bait, etc. Now this recipe passed with flying colours on the taste scale, as no one spit it out, but it was hard to get off the cookie sheet and didn't have the hard texture of a biscuit. Perhaps it was my method as well as substituting ingredients for ones that I didn't have in my pantry. :-)

I am especially interested in recipes that would be good for dogs with food alergies to beef, pork and dairy. Of course, I'd like others too.

Just in case - here is the recipe - maybe someone else will have better luck.

2 cups of whole wheatflour, 1 cup of cornmeal, 2/3 cups of brewers yeast, 2 teaspoons of garlic powder, 2 egg yolks, 3 boullion cubes dissolved in 1-1/2 cups of boiling chicken broth or water.

Mix all ingredients in large bowl. Roll out half of the dough at a time into 3/8 inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes and sizes. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 20 minutes at 375 F. Turn off oven and leave the biscuits in oven until cool. Yields about one pound. If placed in an airtight container, will keep for weeks.

Thanks

Hi all,

I once had a dog with allergies and sorta made up my own receipe for treats cooked in the microwave. I'm not a gourmet cook so things have to be really simple, easy, and fast. The ingredients are all approximate and substitutions can be made fairly easily - peanut butter did not work well though!

4 cups flour (potato or rice flour can be used for wheat allergies) 3 jars baby food (turkey, veal, chicken, beef, ham, lamb) 4-6 eggs (these can be left out)
Lots of garlic powder
Milk to hold it all together like a stiff pie crust dough Vegetable juice from canned veggies can be used here too or just water

Knead into a really stiff dough similar to pie crust dough, and roll out onto floured surface (be sure to save enough potato or rice flour if used In original recipe). Roll dough about 1/8" thick (it puffs up when you cook them) You can then cut into small shapes (I used the "hole" part of a donut cutter to make round treats the size of a quarter) Place on a microwave proof dish and microwave one side about 4-5 minutes (this will vary of course) turn over then finish cooking 3-4 minutes on other side. I used regular dinner plates to cook them on. The only caution is sometimes if there is an air bubble inside one treat - it sorta really burns (no flames though, just gets black and smokes) Keep an eye on your oven!! Experiment till you get times and such right. I've been making treats for years - your house will smell really good too and it drives the dogs nuts!!

Bone appetite,

the all time easiest cookie
becktel@cris.com (Marianne Becktel)
Mon, 14 Aug 1995 00:15:32 -0600


Couldn't find this one right away, so after some rummaging around, here it is!

Super easy cookies

3 cups oats
1/2 cup vegetable oil or pan drippings
1 cup flour
1 cup broth or tomato juice
garlic powder or granules if you want (1T at least)

Mix it all up, spray a pan with some Pam, spread this mix, bake at 350 for about 15 minutes, score with a knife or pizza cutter, bake for another 30 minutes, break up the cookies. If they are still soft, bake another 15 minutes. If not, leave them in the oven while it cools, preferably overnight.

Another Dog Cookie Recipe
Barbara Flook

Sandy, et. al. -

Here's another dog biscuit recipe which takes a while to make, but the dogs love em! (Another way to identify a "dog person" - spends the day making dog cookies before doing any people cookies!)


Mix together:
3.5 cups white flour
1.0 cup rye flour
1.0 cup cornmeal
2.0 cups wheat germ (in cereal section at the store) 0.5 cup powdered milk
1 pkg dry yeast
3 to 4 cups chicken or beef stock (I use the salt free chicken stock)

You'll end up with a rather sticky batter. Use lots of flour to roll out dough, cut out shapes, and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Brush tops with 1 to 2 beaten eggs.

Bake 40-45 minutes at 300 degrees (More or less depending on your oven, thickness of cookies, and hardness desired. If dough is too thick it will take a while longer to cook.)

I store most of the cookies in the freezer or refrigerator, taking some out and leaving uncovered at room temperature (I actually leave a bunch of them in a colander - I had my first batch mold in an airtight container left at room temp)

Makes a nice, healthy cookie that they'll love - just takes some time! (My puppers first got some as X-mas presents from another pupper - now I have to do hours of cooking for all their friends.)

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!

Here's another recipe that's simple and my dogs love it:

Dog Biscuits for the Pampered Pet

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Flour (unsifted) 1/2 Cup Non-fat Powdered Milk
1 Teaspoon Brown Sugar (I use more) 1 Teaspoon Salt
3 Tablespoons Powdered Bouillon (Beef or Chicken) 6 Tablespoons of Margarine or Bacon Grease 1 Egg
1/2 Cup (approximate) Cold Water

Mix dry ingredients (flour, milk, sugar, salt, bouillon) in a large bowl. Add margarine and egg. Slowly add up to 1/2 cup of cold water while kneading the dough with your fingers. When the dough forms a soft ball, roll part if it out ot 1/4"-1/2" thinckness (thinner will be crisper) on a surface covered lightly with flour. Use cookie cutters to make dog bone shapes. Then bake bones at 350 degrees for 30 minutes on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Let cool for 2-3 hours. The quantity will depend on the size of the bones.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I got this recipe at the Old Dominion Kennel Club Dog Show in Northern Virginia. The SPCA was selling bones at their bake sale and Bogen loved them (although he prefered the chocolate brownies). They gave me the recipe and I have passed it on to many dog lovers.

My dogs love these, even while they are still warm, just be careful they don't burn the dog's mouth. I add extra brown sugar because my dogs seem to have as bad of a sweet tooth as their mother. Also great for those all natural diets. I make them at Christmas and Bogen and Bianca give them to the neighborhood dogs. Very easy to do and most ingredients are household items. This recipe usually makes about 4 doz. - 4 inch long- 3/4 thick bones.

Molly, Bogen, and Bianca - We really love these bones. Yum yum! Mom is such a good cook!

Grief and Biscuits
"Mary Ann E. Sontag"
Mon, 18 Mar 1996 08:15:21 -0600 (CST)


Although I am relatively new to the story of Sophie, I am very sorry to learn of your very difficult decision, Brian. I can only imagine how hard that was to decide and to carry out. It does sound as if you were thoughtful about the decision, and made the best choice that was available to you -- but still, I am sorry :(

Difficult to transition from such a sad thing to something as mundane as biscuits but here it goes...

I am a big fan of Dr. Pitcairn (Natural Health for Dogs and Cats). In fact, I make my own dog food from his recipes -- another reason my kids think I love the dogs more. Anyway, here are a couple of recipes for biscuits:

2 cups whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup soy flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
1 t bonemeal
1/2 cup sunflower or pumpkin seeds
1-2 cloves minced garlic
1 T nutritional yeast (OPTIONAL)
2 T melter butter or other fat or oil
1/4 cup unsulfured molasses
1 t salt
2 eggs mixed with 1/4 cup milk

mix the flours, cornmeal, bonemeal and seed together. Add garlic and yeast (if desired). Combine the butter/fat/oil, molasses, salt and egg mixture and then combine woth flour mixture. Add more milk as necessary to make a firm dough. Knead a few minutes and then let rest for 1/2 hour. Roll out to 1/2 inch thickness, cut into desired shapes. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until lightly toasted. To make them harder, leave in the oven with the heat turned off for another hour. The biscuits keep longer if you do not use butter.

Here is a less complicated one:

1 cup whole-wheat or rye flour
1/4 cup soy flour
3 T fat or oil
1/2 t bonemeal
1 clove garlic
1/3 c water or broth

Combine dry ingredients. Add water or broth and mix well. Roll out on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 until golden brown. Break into bite-size chunks.

I have found that one can be quite liberal with substitutions if there are allergies/preferences. Also, I use a variety of things for dog treats. My two love grapes, raisins, banannas -- really any fruit. Since I train a lot with food, I try to be creative to keep it interesting to them. I also make regular waffle batter and bake the waffles a long time so I can cut them into bite-size crunchy pieces.

Oh -- an idea! Use peanut butter in place of the fat -- I bet that would be fine! Good luck!

Biscuits

Hi all

This biscuit recipe is similar to the first one Mary Ann Sontag offered - I suspect a variation from the same source.

2 cups wholewheat flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup soy flour
1/4 cup sunflower or pumpkin seeds
1 teaspn kelp powder
1/4 cup molasses
2 tabspns oil or melted butter
2 eggs mixed with 1/4 cup of milk

Mix dry ingredients together. Add molasses and all but 1 tablespoon of the egg mixture. Add more milk if needed to make a firm dough. Knead for a few minutes and then let stand fo 1/2 an hour or more. Roll out to 1/2 inch thick and cut into shapes and brush with rest of egg mixture. Bake on cookie sheets at 350F (180C) for 30 minutes or until lightly toasted. To make biscuits harder, leave in oven with heat off for an hour or more.

You can also make a variation with peanut butter and honey instead of seeds and molasses - good enough for people biscuits!!!


Or alternatively, a very Australian-flavoured biscuit:

2 1/2 cups wholemeal flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup brown rice
1/2 cup canola oil (rape seed oil)
1 dessertspn crushed garlic
1 tablespn honey
1 teaspn Vegemite (the Australian bit - basically any savoury spread, this stuff is SALTY)

Mix all together. Roll onto board and cut into shapes. Bake in moderate oven 30-45 minutes, or until hard. Cool and store in an airtight tin or jar.

I haven't tried either of these myself, but apparently the first recipe goes down a treat, even with fussy eaters.

Happy cooking

Beren's birthday! (longish)
ecologue@camtech.net.au (Ecologue Information Services)
Wed, 7 Aug 1996 22:50:39 +0930


Hi all

I haven't posted in ages, so this is a sort of catch up, say hello post. Beren turned 7 yesterday, which I consider a milestone given his mast cell cancer time bomb. Since his tumour was removed in February he has been even brighter and cuddlier than he was before (if that's possible!). He is in now way slowing down - I don't know if he just likes cold weather, but he was skittling about like a pup when I took him out tonight. He's such a darling - never happier than when in someone's lap (blame my husband for encouraging that - I take my cuddles with Beren on the floor!), or at least leaning against you, preferably on the bed. Even with the tiny amount of obedience training I've done with him, his behaviour has improved out of sight (what sort of idiot starts outdoor obed. classes in mid-winter, which here is marked by rain!?). So I don't know how many more birthdays we'll share with Beren, maybe one, maybe two if we're really lucky, but I cherish every moment he's with me. I can understand those who can't bear to replace a loved and lost Berner with another because the first was too special, but we will always have one of these tri-colour love bundles in our family. My deepest sympathies go to all those who have lost their friends recently - it always seems to happen in swathes, across the world.

As an aside, Beren also is prone to eye trouble, although not droopiness. He get allergy problems in spring, and goes on drops and ointment for a week or so, which clears it up quickly. The main symptom is weeping eyes, with red inflammation of the whites. This is about the only recurrent health problem we have with him - joints not x-rayed, but never any lameness, although he had some diet-related skin trouble years back, which we fixed by avoiding all artificial chemicals in his food.

Gael Goldsack's Kiri (Sydney, Australia), sent Beren a present for his birthday of some wonderful treat recipes, which I am taking the liberty of sharing with you all. These ones are definitely human treats too!

Little Salmon Snackers

1 very small can of pink salmon, 1 egg, 1 tablespoon chopped parsley, 1 cup wholemeal flour

Drain excess liquid from salmon and reserve. Combine all other ingredients, with extra salmon liquid if the dough is too dry and more flour if too moist (should be like bread dough) - give excess salmon liquid to the hungry hoard around your feet!

Pinch off little pieces of dough and roll into marble sized balls. Place on a greased baking tray and bake at 375F for about 30 minutes. Turn off oven and leave to dry out.

A word of warning - don't put these in your pocket and forget them! (I think a little cheese might go nicely with these too.)

Peanut Butter Biscuits

1 cup wholemeal flour, 3/4 cup crunchy peanut butter, 1/2 cup water, 2 tablespoons honey, 1 teaspoon cinnamon.

Place peanut butter, honey, water and cinnamon in a bowl. Microwave until all ingredients are warm and will combine on stirring. Slowly fold In flour.

Roll out and cut with cookie cutters into desired shapes (bone shaped if you can!). Bake at 350F for about 25 minutes (watch they don't burn!). Turn off oven and let biscuits harden.

Humans can eat them without the hardening stage. Kiri likes the peanut butter ones best.

Thank you so much to Gael for sharing these with me, and I hope you don't mind me sharing them further.

Enjoy!

Kiri's cup cakes
Gael.Goldsack@uts.edu.au (Gael Goldsack)
Thu, 15 Aug 1996 07:35:30 +0800


I have been told that onions are not good for dogs, although one recipe I posted uses onions and my two have ever had ill effects from eating small quantities of onion.

The onion can be safely replaced with garlic - so not only will the dog have a treat, but will be flea-free as well!!

Below is the new version:

Hamburger cup cakes

500g (1lb) mince
4 crushed garlic cloves
1 tablespoon Vegemite (Marmite, Bovril or beef stock concentrate for the non Aussies) 1 egg
Packaged breadcrumbs
Cheese slices

Mix the first 4 ingredients together, add the breadcrumbs until the mixture is no longer wet and can be rolled into balls. Shallow fry the meatballs until cooked. Top with pieces of cheese slices and melt cheese under grill. Cool and set in cupcake papers.

Any type of mince works too, chicken, veal, even kangaroo!

Burp!!

JANIE WANTS A TREAT

Anne Albaugh

This is my first attempt at posting here and I trust that I am doing it properly. I am new to the wonderful digest and am enjoying it thoroughly. I have a three year old Berner -- Guido -- who is the light of my life. Guido is 115 pounds of love! I make these cookies for him and he adores them. If I dont use a cookie cutter I just make small (dime size) drops on the cookie sheet and that's it! The dough does NOT run so you can keep the cookies close together. I hope that Janie likes these. gertgoldman@juno.com

Happy 7th Birthday Kiri!
Gael Goldsack
Sun, 20 Jul 1997 19:17:03 +1000 (EAST)


My littlest hearthound, Kiri turns seven tomorrow. It is hard to belive - the time has just gone so fast! Fluffball one day, big dog the next!

Kiri had a very busy pre-birthday weekend. Firstly, a dog show on Saturday where we watched Nocole take out both dog and bitch Challenge with Woody and Pol and win Best of Breed with young Pol. Then we met 2 of Nicole's 8.5 week old puppies, who were just sooooo cute. We then had a pre-Birthday lunch with some friends and their dogs of course (including 2 Berners) with special Birthday Salmon Dog Cookies (recipe follows), then off to obedience class. Today Kiri had a bath so she will be clean for her big day, then a lovely walk through the spring flowers (early I know!) in the bush. Now she is lying contentedly at my feet as I type this. Getting a computer at home was the best present for Kiri. She can come and spend some time with me alone as our Irish Wolfhound will not enter the study as the floors are polished and she slips on them.

Thankfully Kiri is still in good health. The only signs of ageing are her brownish "spectacles" around her eyes and her black coat is a little sun bleached. We keep her arthritis at bay with monthly Cartrophen shots. Kiri is still full of bounce and always smiling - still a puppy at heart and a delight to own - I'm hooked on Berners forever.

Happy Birthday my beautiful little barrel dog - may you have many more!

Birthday Salmon Dog Cookies

1 medium can pink Salmon
Half cup roughly chopped parsley
1 egg
1 cup rice flour

Blend the salmon (including juice and bones) with the egg in a blender or food processor. Add chopped parsley and flour and mix well (should be a moist sticky dough). Roll out between 2 sheets of cling film. Cut out fish shapes using a cookie cutter. Place on a greased oven slide and bake at 180C (350F) for about 15 minutes. Turn off the oven, crack door open and leave to harden for another 20-30 minutes. Cool and store in airtight container (if they last that long) Makes 20

When we had a birthday party for our pups their 1st birthday, we made the "cake" out of a meat loaf recipe and baked them in small, 1 cup size pans (1 lb. size coffee cans work well too). When cooked, we turned them out and decorated them with Cheese Whiz in the pressurized can - it made nice rosettes and fluted edge trim. We sat the four puppies at the kitchen table on chairs, put on their party hats (held on by the elastic under their chins) and let them eat their cakes off paper party plates on the table. Each guest received a "goodie bag" of bisquits and dog treats, along with their own little cake and a rawhide. Those dogs were better behaved than the children at most of my kids' parties! I still have the photos from that day and I laugh every time I see them.

I made a birthday "cake" that was a great hit when one of my dogs turned one year old. I took it to a show and shared it with her Mum, Dad, some littermates and other assorted relatives:

Make a meatloaf with one pound (500 g) of ground meat (beef, veal, ckicken or whatever you fancy). Add some crushed garlic and whatever grated vegetables you like (carrots, potato, parsnip, zuchini(corgettes), etc) Add a small handful of chopped parsley, a beaten egg, a teaspoon of stock powder (or Marmite or Vegemite) and some packaged breadcrumbs (or cooked rice or pasta). Mix well and shape into a "cake" and cook in a greased cake tin in a moderate oven for about 1 hour. You may need tip off some fat half way through the cooking if the meat is very fatty. Cool and "ice" with mashed potato. Decorate with kibble bits or raw carrot shapes. Serve cold. Guaranteed the plates will be licked clean and everyone will want seconds.

Enjoy!!

To: berner-l@prairienet.org




I received many excellent ideas for my dog with food allergies. Thought I would share the best one for me since I am not much of a cook. Thanks to Stephanie for the idea:

Buy the canned food of the dry food your dog with allergies eats. Open both ends of the can and slide it out. Cut it in slices and then quarters, place it on a cookie sheet and bake at 325 degrees until hard. Let cool and they make the best treats and you never have to worry about the ingredients because they are in the food that your dog is eating.

Sorry sorry sorry sorry
"Amy Moffatt"
Thu, 28 Sep 2000 10:32:29 -0400


Hi! Amy Moffatt again- I wanted to apologize to everyone for infecting the list with the kakworm virus. I feel just terrible I had no idea we had anything like that! Everybody has been so nice and here I go and make a wonderful first impression like that. I wish there was some way to make amends- I'd send you all virtual chocolate chip cookies if I could, but since I can't I thought you all would like this recipe for home made dog treats I found in a Martha Stewart magazine and adapted for my family's pets. Here goes:

1 cup flour
1/4 wheat germ
1/4 brewer's yeast
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. + 1 1/2 tsp. canola oil
1 medium clove of garlic, chopped
1/2 cup chicken or beef broth, plus more for basting Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix flour, wheat germ, brewer's yeast, and salt in a large mixing bowl. In another bowl combine the oil and garlic. Alternate adding your broth and the oil mixture to the dry ingredients until well combined and a sticky dough forms, then knead for about 2 minutes. Roll dough out and cut into shapes and place on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, baste and bake for 10 minutes more, then turn off the heat and leave them in the oven to cool for an hour or so. I made these for the last couple of years for my sister's dogs and they loved them! Last year I basted them with some of that gravy mix you get in packets and they LOVED IT. I always feel so sorry for the pooches at holiday time, everybody gets presents and fussed over but them. Oh and this recipe is supposed to repel fleas, probably 'cause of the garlic, but I don't know if it's true or not.

Anyway- I want to thank everybody for all of the email and support you've sent my way! We lost all of our email messages before I got a chance to read them all when we cleaned up the virus ( oh yeah we now have a virus detecting program!) but your collective response to my posting was wonderfully overwhelming! My library is getting a book one of you recommended ( i'm sorry i can't remember who to thank them- all of my mail is deleted) so I can read some more about them, and I've been surfing the net getting all the info I can. I am a little sad about the life expectancy of the breed, but it's not enough of a drawback to set me off the berner. I have never met one in person yet but I think I may be hooked all ready. I lost all of the information Pat sent me however, so if anybody has any information on breeders in Southeastern Lower Michigan (I live in the Downriver Detroit area) I would appreciate it. Thank you all so much! I hope you can use the recipe and I am SO SORRY about the virus! Amy Moffatt

Oooooooops! Seems I'm full of mistakes lately! In the recipe I posted I forgot to put down that you need 1/4 cup each of wheat germ and brewer's yeast. Sorry again, and thanks for pointing it out Maria!

Shelley-

Here's the recipe I've always used and passed on:

1 lg. container yogurt (Fat Free Plain or Vanilla) 1-2 Bananas
3/4 c. water

Blend the ingredients in a blender until smooth and the pour into small Dixie cups and freeze. Just pop them out of the cups (or tears the cups away if they're being stubborn) and serve.

That recipe has gotten good reviews by friends and members of the list, both human and furry . Someone else forwarded me a recipe that includes Honey and Peanut Butter. The PB might be a good flavor variety, but I hesitate to use Honey. I don't think the added sweetness is necessary, and i can't see how it would really serve any other purpose. So i usually keep it simple. But if you're interested in that variety, I can email you that recipe as well.

Good luck and may the Berners have a very happy B-day!

Hi Jesse,

Here are two options for homemade frozen treats:

FROSTY PAWS

Dissolve a bouillon cube (beef or chicken) in three quarters of a cup of warm water. Mix in blender or food processor with two cups plain yoghurt. Freeze in ice cube trays sprayed with PAM.

PUPSICLES

Mix one cup plain yoghurt, one ripe banana, and one quarter cup of water in blender or food processor till smooth. Freeze in ice cube trays sprayed with PAM.

For variation add crumbly bits from bottom of dog biscuit box. Enjoy!


Cheers!
