Dog biscuits

I saw these being made two years ago on Kirstie Allsopp’s Handmade Christmas. They are a great, very easy thing to make for your dog, or as present for someone who has a dog. We don’t have a dog, but I’ve made these many times for my sister’s dog and he loves them. If you are usually a bit nervous of making biscuits these need hold no fear as even if you overwork them, it doesn’t matter because the doggy won’t mind.

This is what you need:

350g plain flour

120ml of hot water (plus extra later)

A low-salt chicken stock cube

One egg

Two tablespoons of dried parsley (for fresh canine breath)

This is what you do:

Dissolve the stock cube in the hot water, then pour into a bowl and mix in all the other ingredients, adding more water if necessary, to make a soft dough.

Roll out on a floured surface until quite thin (about half a cm) and cut out (I use bone cutters of course). Place on a baking tray with baking parchment and bake at 200C for 20-30 mins. Mine take about 22 mins.

Let cool and give to a lucky doggy!
