Your dog would love a batch of homemade cookies just as much as you do. She might be happy to munch on the boxed biscuits you bought at the pet store but she'll really appreciate fresh-from-the-oven dog treats you made yourself. They're healthy because you know all the ingredients that you put into them and they come in handy during training sessions. You'll be surprised at how easy it is to make up a batch of dog biscuits with beef broth. It's just like baking cookies.
Heat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix the flour, peanut butter and beef broth together to form a stiff cookie dough. Add milk a tablespoon at a time if the dough is too stiff.
Roll the dough to a quarter-inch thickness on a floured surface, and cut into shapes with the cookie cutters.
Spray the cookie sheet with the cooking spray and then place the biscuits on it.
Re-roll the dough and keep cutting out cookies until you've used it all.
Beat the egg and 1 tablespoon of milk together, then brush the mixture over the biscuits.
Place the dog biscuits into the preheated oven and bake for 35 minutes.
Remove the biscuits from the oven and allow to cool before feeding them to your dog.
