TOBY TREATS

Recipes

Peanut Butter and Pumpkin “Biscotti” Dog Treats (“Biswoofti”)

2 1/2 cups flour (whole wheat or regular)

2 eggs 


3/4 cup pumpkin purée (canned or homemade)


3 tablespoons peanut butter

            1/4 teaspoon salt 


1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Place all the ingredients (except the peanut butter) in a bowl. Mix until well combined. Flatten dough with a roller (or empty glass bottle) into a large rectangle (the size of a cookie sheet). Spread peanut butter on flattened dough. Roll up the dough on itself as if to make a “roll cake”. Press down on the roll cake so that it is no more than ½ inch in thickness (height). Slice the roll crosswise into 1/2inch slices. Place the slices cut side up back onto the baking sheet. Bake for 35 minutes in a preheated 350 degree F oven (175 degrees C).

 

Cheese and Beef “Quiches” Dog Biscuits (“Barkiches”)

2 ½ cups flour (whole wheat or regular)

2 eggs

1 ½ teaspoons beef bouillon granules (1 ½ cubes)

½ cup hot water

1½ cups shredded cheese (or left over bacon/meat or anything your pup enjoys).

Dissolve the bouillon granules in hot water in a large bowl. Add the eggs and flour. Mix until well combined. Add the shredded cheese. Knead dough until all the ingredients are well incorporated. Roll the dough into a long snake (about ½ inch to 1 inch in diameter). Cut the dough in ½ inch slices. Place the slices cut side up back onto the baking sheet. Bake for 40 minutes in a preheated 350 degree F oven (175 degrees C).
