Dog Biscuit Recipe

You don’t have to own a dog to know how much they love peanut butter (I don’t, but my girls are working on me). This recipe should endear you to all your neighborhood canine buddies.

4 ounces water or chicken stock
4 ounces vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 1/2 ounces peanut butter
11 ounces all-purpose flour
2 1/4 ounces cornmeal (substitute rye flour if you prefer)
2 1/4 ounces oats

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Combine the water, oil, eggs and peanut butter and whisk together. Whisk dry ingredients in a separate bowl and combine them with the wet ingredients. Stir together until a rough dough forms, adding more water if necessary. Knead a little by hand, then roll the dough out to a thickness of 3/8″ and cut into desired shapes. Transfer the biscuits to a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake 20 minutes. Turn the oven off and allow the biscuits to bake until they’re dry and firm. Cool completely and store in an airtight container.

  1. Just catching up on all things Joe P and puttering around the revamped site (p.s. liked it when search was on the static side menu…extra clicks to open search are…well…I’m not getting any younger).

    Two alterations and a hard-earned dog biscuit tip:

    1. Peanut butter is sticky and takes extra utensils to get it off the spoon and well…I’m not getting any younger. I substitute about 1/2 cup coarsely-ground peanuts for the p.b.

    2. Add a 1/2 -3/4 bag of REAL bacon bits (what’s that, about 2-3 oz?) to the dry ingredients, and nearly every pup will want to adopt YOU.

    TIP: If using chicken stock and/or bacon bits, keep the biscuits in the fridge in humid regions…dogs won’t touch fuzzy moldy biccys, and you won’t want to either.

    Now what about a good cat biscuit, Joe? Our dogs smugly pant bacon-breath in the cats’ faces…the tension is thick here…
