Introduction: DIY Dog Biscuits

Recently, I made some frozen dog treats for my puppy Charlotte. She enjoyed them so much and I had so much fun making them so I decided to try my hand a making dog biscuits. This is a quick and easy project that your canine companion is sure to love.

Step 1: Ingredients

What's great about this recipe is how quick and simple it is, requiring 20 minutes and a few supplies. You will need...

  • 1 Cup Bisquick
  • 1/2 Cup peanut butter
  • 3/8 Cup milk
  • Flour (can be substituted with more Bisquick)
  • Cooking spray
  • Cookie cutter
  • Oven
  • Cookie sheet
  • Rolling pin (optional)
  • Measuring cups
  • Spoon



Step 2: Preheat Oven

Since this project goes by pretty quickly, you will want to start the oven right away so it will be preheated by the time your ingredients are mixed. Preheat the oven to 400°, and start preparing your ingredients.

Step 3: Mix Ingredients

While the oven is warming up, start by mixing the Bisquick and milk in a large bowl. You can just mix the peanut butter in as well, but do yourself a favor and out your measured peanut butter in the microwave for 30 seconds or until it is gooey and runny. Doing this will make mixing much easier. Once its heated, mix it thoroughly with the other ingredients. As you mix, it should begin to gain a doughy consistency. To give the dough just a little bit of volume, knead the dough a few times. You are now ready to cut out the biscuits.

Step 4: Roll and Cut the Biscuits

Before you can cut the shapes out, you need to roll the dough out first. If you have a rolling pin, feel free to use that to make the thickness of the biscuits more uniform. However, you can just as easily hand press the dough and get the same result. Whichever method you choose, put a pinch of either flour or some dry Bisquick down on your rolling surface to prevent it from sticking. Roll until the thickness is about a quarter of an inch. Once you are done rolling, you can use your cookie cutter to cut out the biscuits. You should depart this process until the dough is used up.

Step 5: Bake

Now that the treats are cut out, you can put them on your cookie sheet. Be sure to grease the sheet first so none of them sick. Place them on the sheet with about a quarter inch of space between the treats. When ready, put the treats in the oven for 8 minutes, watching them carefully since they can burn pretty easily. Once done, they should have a nice golden brown color to them and should be taken out of the oven. Let them cool.

Step 6: Finished!

Once the treats have cooled, feel free to reward and spoil your dog with the tasty biscuits. If your dog is anything like mine, they are sure to love them. A batch this size made 15 biscuits for me so feel free to adjust measurements as necessary. Thanks for reading!
