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
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!
