Dog Biscuits

Labels: , ,

My food blog has gone to the dogs. ^.^ . I wanted to get my son's dog Sonoma a bag of duck jerky treats for Christmas and I found out almost ALL of them come from China. And we know dog food from that country are toxic. So I baked biscuits instead and if I still have time next week I'll make chicken jerky treats. 

My recipe is adapted from the one on the card that came with the giant bone dog biscuit cutter replacing less than half of the flour with all-purpose and the bacon dripping with duck fat and coconut oil. I used rabbit, duck, bird, elephant, cat, star, and of course the bone cutters. 

Dog Biscuits
1½ cups whole wheat flour
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon raw sugar
½ teaspoon sea salt
4 tablespoons duck fat, cold
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 egg, lightly beaten
½ cup ice water
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flours, sugar, and salt. Work in the fats with fingertips. Stir in egg and sprinkle ice water. Knead lightly a few times until smooth. Pat or roll into a ½ inch-thick rectangle. Cut into desired shapes; transfer into a sheet pan and bake in preheated 350° F oven for 25 minutes. Turn off oven and leave biscuits in for another 10 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer cookies on the kitchen counter. Keep in airtight container.

They're very crunchy and tasty although need more salt but good enough for us too. I'll add peanut butter when I make them again. Thanks.:)

Is there a substitute for the duck fat?

Coconut, grapeseed, or very light olive oil would be good substitute.
