Doggy biscuits

All ready to go into the oven.... dog biscuits for our Mabel.

From a great book Doggie Biscuits - Healthy Homemade Treats - Seasoned with Affection. There's some really unusual recipes in here but, most importantly, a bit of info about the stuff your dog should and should not be eating. Had no idea that dogs cannot eat garlic or onion, which I'm sure many owners scrape off their dinner plates into the dog bowl.

Well, just for a taster, here's the recipe for the tuna and oat 'bone' biscuits:

1 can tuna
4 tbsp olive oil
1 egg
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried oregano
9 oz cornflour
5 oz rolled oats
2 oz plain flour

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment.

Drain the tuna in a sieve, then puree it with the oil and the egg in a blender. Mix the puree with the other ingredients to make a dough. Add a touch of water if it is too dry.

Roll out the dough to about 1 cm thick and cut it into shapes with your cookie cutter. Place the biscuits on a baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes. Store in a biscuit tin.

The cookies will keep for about 2 weeks if they last that long!
