Ingredients for Fire Hydrants Dog Cookies
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup unbleached flour
- 1/2 cup cornmeal
- 2 T. oat bran
- 2 T. organic soy flour
- 1 1/2 tsp. dry yeast
- 1 T. beef bouillon or beef base
- 1/2 cup cooked beef, chopped into little pieces
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- Place all the ingredients in your bread maker.
- Use the dough cycle.
- When the dough is ready, remove it and divide it into 3 equal portions.
- Roll the dough, using a non-stick rolling pin, into 1/4” sheets.
- Cut the cookies with a fire hydrant cookie cutter, dipping the cutter into a bowl of flour in between each cut. This keeps the cutter from sticking to the cookie, and makes your life a lot simpler!
- Place the cookies onto a greased cookie sheet or an ungreased silicone baking mat.
- Let them rise for about 45 minutes.
- Bake the cookies for about an hour at 275 degrees F. Check to make sure that they don’t get too brown!
- Turn off the oven and let the dog treats finish drying overnight. If you have a dehydrator, you can finish drying the dog treats by dehydrating them for 2-3 hours in your dehydrator.
You can store these cookies, as long as they are thoroughly dried and hard, at room temperature in your Fire Hydrant Ceramic Cookie Jar, for several months.
If you need to store them longer, place them in an airtight food storage container in the refrigerator or freezer.
