Beef and Carrot Home Made Dog Treats

You can make these yummy dog treats in any shape you like. If you don't have a dog biscuit cutter you can roll them into balls or use the top of a small glass or jar to cut rounds.

Ingredients:

These yummy dog biscuit recipies make some delicious treats for your dog!
  • 2.3 cups (300 grams) sifted whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup (65 grams) of powdered milk
  • 1/2 cups (110 grams) of cooked ground beef
  • 1 beef stock cube
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 medium sized grated carrot
  • 1/4 cup (75 grams) of lard or butter
  • 1 medium sized egg
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) cold water

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F/180 Degrees C/Gas Mark 4 and lightly grease a couple of large baking trays.

  2. Sift the flour into a large bowl, add the powdered milk and salt, and stir.

  3. Crumble the beef stock cube into the bowl and stir again. (If it's not the crumbling sort, melt in a little boiling water).

  4. Add the ground beef, grated carrot, lard or butter, and the egg and mix thoroughly.

  5. Continue mixing while slowly adding the water to form a stiff dough.

  6. Roll the dough out onto a lightly floured pastry board and roll until the dough is approximately 1/4 inch thick.

  7. Cut into biscuit shapes using either a cookie cutter or a knife and place them onto the prepared baking trays and bake in the oven for 25 - 30 minutes.

This dog biscuit recipe makes around 60 treats using a 2 inch (5 cm) biscuit cutter.

If you want the cookies to harden, simply leave them in the oven until they cool.

If you don't have any ground/minced beef to hand, simply crumble in an extra beef stock cube. If you do use an extra stock cube, don't add the salt because you won't need it.

I usually freeze most of the biscuits in a zip-lock plastic freezer bag and keep a week's worth of treats in another bag in the refrigerator.

Tips For Baking Our Tasty Dog Biscuits

  • Before you begin, I recommend you measure out all your ingredients - be organized!
  • Always preheat the oven before you start your preparation for your dog biscuit recipes.
  • If there are any scraps of dough left over after cutting out the biscuit shapes, gather them up, roll out again, and cut more biscuits!
These homemade dog biscuits are not only a tasty treat for your Cocker, they're easy to make too!
  • When the biscuits are cooked, switch off the oven and leave them inside overnight to cool. This will help to make the doggie treats crispy and crunchy - they'll also keep longer too!
  • Store the cookies in an airtight container to keep them fresh and crunchy.
  • Refrigerating the biscuits will help them to stay fresh longer.
  • Home made dog treats can also be frozen and may be kept for up to 6 months.
  • The number of treats our dog biscuit recipes make will vary, depending on how thickly or thinly you roll your dough and the size you cut your biscuits.
