Snack Time

Now one thing you might not know about me is that I a great fan of treats. I'll do anything for a biscuit, paw, sit, lay down, stay, I'll do them all for a lovely tasty biscuit.

Sometimes I'm extra lucky and my Mummy bakes me homemade dog biscuits just for me. She asked that I share my two favourite recipes with the world so all my doggy pals can try them too.

Unfortunately I don't get them too often as Mummy says they make the house stink. which is true, but if you ask me it makes it stink lovely!

Beefy Biscuits
  • 320g flour (plain or whole wheat)
  • 65g powdered milk
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg
  • 120ml beef stock cooled*
Take your cooled beef stock and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix round until a dough is formed and knead slightly.

Roll dough until 1/2" thick; cut into shapes. Bake on lightly greased baking try at gas mark 4 for 30 minutes.

(*Mummy sometimes adds a little yeast extract to the beef stock for extra beefiness - Mmmm Marmite...)

Cheesy Biscuits
  • 125g flour (plain or whole wheat)
  • 125g grated cheese
  • 1 tablespoon margarine (or softened butter)
  • 120ml milk
In a large bowl mix the flour and cheese together. Add the margarine and then slowly add milk until a dough forms. Knead the dough slightly on a floured surface.

Roll out to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into shapes and place on a baking tray. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes on gas mark 4. Leave them in the oven until they have cooled. These should be kept in the fridge to stay fresh, that is if you don’t scoff them all as soon as they are made!


  1. YUM! I will need to remind my momma that she does know how to cook for ME!


  2. Something tells me we will have to give one of these a spin this weekend. Yum!!
