DOG BISCUITS


Time for a cute little treat for your pooch! These biscuits are a hit amongst even the fussiest of dogs, so give them a try on your best friend & let me know how they like them! And the best part is they'll stay fresh in an airtight container for one month!


Prep Time: 20 mins
Cooking Time: 25 mins
Drying Time: 8 hours
Makes approx 2 Dozen Biscuits


Ingredients: 

1 1/4 Cups Plain Flour
1 1/4 Cups Wholemeal Flour 
1 1/4 Cups Polenta
1 1/4 Cups Rolled Oats
1/2 Cup Wheat Germ
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar 
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1 1/2 Teaspoons Salt
170 grams Cold Unsalted Butter cut into Cubes
1 Cup + 1 Tablespoon Water
1/2 Cup Chopped Flat Leaf Parsley
1/2 Cup Chopped Fresh Mint Leaves 
1 Large Egg
1 Dog Biscuit Cookie Cutter

Method:

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius.

Using a Food Processor pulse flours, polenta, oats, wheat germ, brown sugar, baking powder & salt until combined. 

Add the butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal with pea size butter lumps.

Gradually add 1 cup of water while pulsing until a coarse, dense dough forms. 

Turn out the dough onto a floured surface and knead in the chopped parsley and mint until well distributed. 

Gather, then halve the dough & roll out 1 half at a time with a lightly floured rolling pin. Remember to rotate the disc of dough as you roll it out to prevent it sticking to the bench. Roll it out to approx 5mm thick and cut out the biscuits with the dog bone cookie cutter. Transfer these onto a lined baking tray leaving 1 cm between each biscuit. Repeat until all the dough has been used.

Whisk together 1 egg & 1 tablespoon of water to form an egg wash & brush each biscuit. 

Bake for approximately 25 mins or until golden brown. 

Once all biscuits are cooked, turn off the oven & leave them in the oven overnight to dry out. 

Place them in an airtight container & enjoy fresh biscuits for up to 30 days!

Enjoy! xxx
