Homemade Cheddar Dog Biscuits

December 17, 2013

Hello friends!  As many of you know I love my dog Bosco and I decided this year to make him some homemade dog biscuits for Christmas.  I went on a search for the perfect recipe on Pinterest and found the recipe HERE at the The Scrumptious Pumpkin.

Here is what the baked dog biscuits look like when baked.

My dog Bosco is so happy with them as you can see.

Cheddar and Applesauce Homemade Dog Biscuits
Total Time:  25 minutes
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
Yield: 30 treats
  • ¾ cups whole wheat flour (or rye flour or brown rice flour)
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese, grated
  • 3 tablespoons all-natural applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons water
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface and roll out to about half an inch thick. Cut treats with a cookie cutter and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until treats are firm to the touch.
  4. Before freezing or storing, allow cookies to cool and harden, about 50 minutes.
Adapted from the book Beagle: Smart Owner’s Guide

 NOTE: The treats typically last up to 1 - 1 1/2 weeks in the fridge.  If you don't plan to use up all the treats right away, they can be frozen.

The link to the blog and recipe I found on Pinterest is HERE.

I plan on baking more for Bosco and give them to my neighbor's dogs that I dog sit sometimes.  I love spoiling my dog and this is the perfect way with all natural dog treats.  They were so good my husband and daughter tried them too!  Lol.  I hope this has given you an idea if you can't think of what to give your dog for Christmas this year.
