We can't forget about our hairy little friends this time of year! Winters here in WI get pretty cold so we let our dog, Quinn, come inside throughout the winter, but he truly loves being outside. He's got a top of the line dog kennel that includes a heated, insulated dog house. He's one happy camper out there! We recently made him some homemade treats and some extras for his friends.
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp. brown sugar
1/2 cup powdered milk
6 Tb. meat drippings or liquid smoke
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup ice water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly oil a cookie sheet.
Combine dry ingredients. Add liquid smoke and mix until it resembles corn meal.
Add egg and enough water so dough forms into a ball.
Pat out dough 1/2 inch thick and cut with cookie cutter (we used a bone) saving scraps.
Bake 25-30 minutes.
Remove and cool.
