St. Patrick's for the Dogs

Hope you all had a great St. Patrick's Day.  
My dog got into the green with some homemade 
green dog biscuits. 

They are Bailey approved as you can see, 
he did not leave a crumb in site.  
Not too bad since this was my first go at dog treats.  

Homemade St. Patrick Dog Biscuits

1 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup corn meal
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup oat meal
1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken stock
1/4 cup low-sodium chicken stock for basting.
Green food coloring

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large mixing bowl combine whole wheat flour, corn meal,
pumpkin and 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken stock and vegetable oil. Mix well.
Now add a drop or two of green food coloring until you get your desired color, mix well.
On a lightly floured work surface, roll out your dough about 3/8 inches think and take a dog bone cookie cutter and cut out your shapes.
If you like a fuller plumped bone biscuits you can transfer you biscuits to the cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.   

To keep your biscuits flat, take a toothpick or fork to the center of each bone biscuit and transfer your biscuits to the cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake your bone biscuits for 10 to 12 minutes then basted with chicken stock, bake another 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool, your looking for a dry crunch biscuit. 

Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

Hope your four legged friends enjoy them as much as mine did.
