Reroll scraps and continue cutting out biscuits.

  • Space biscuits 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes until nicely browned and firm.

  • Transfer biscuits to a wire rack. Turn off oven and place biscuits on wire rack in oven overnight. Remove from oven and store in an airtight container up to 2 weeks.

It was a hit with my dogs and easy to make, so they are the real reviewers for this.

Fantastic! All natural ingredients, no sugar or wheat...what's not to love? We tasted them and know why our dog loves them! Yummy! We substituted the cheeses for cottage cheese.

I have the mixture in the bowl and it is FAR FAR too dry. I'm not sure how to even attempt to roll this out. Wondering what I'll have to add to make it roll-able.

the batter is too dry.. way too dry, i added more water and olive oil.. like almost 2 extra cups of liquids i needed to add. i also used coconut flour instead of barley flour.. im sure the dogs will love them, but the recipe needs updated.. i wish i added more applesauce in hindsight..

It is great recipe for my precious Atom:) I think the best thing we can do for our dog is to give them healthy homemade food. There are lots of great recipes in this website . You should see how they prepare great recipes for us.

I believe the recipe may be a bit off. Maybe too much flour? I found the dough incredibly dry and it would not form a dough, so I added extra applesauce. I would also recommend rolling out the dough in two batches unless you have a really large counter. I ended up with 37 biscuits.

My dog Bella. LOVES these. I put one of these in one hand and a store bought one in the other hand and she always goes for these over the store bought. I also love that i actually know whats in them.. and to be honest. If i know that i can eat these, i feel much better as a pet owner. :)
