Last Minute Gift Idea: Doggie Biscuits in a Jar

My Phoebe Darling

We are a large dog-loving family. Between my daughters, sisters, mother and myself; we always have a pup or two under foot. Our family pups include Boston terriers, labs, Lhasa apsos and rescue beagles. Each holiday season I bake a lot of Chick-Beef Doggie Biscuits. This year I decided to batch the ingredients in a gift jar.  The recipe is pretty simple and the pups LOVE these biscuits.

INGREDIENTS

2 1/2 cups flour, 1 cup steel cut rolled oats, 3/4 cup of canned beef consommé soup, 1/2 cup powdered low-fat dried milk, 1 egg, 3/4 stick margarine, 1 tsp. garlic powder, 1 chicken bullion cube.

RECIPE

Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Then add the egg, margarine and crumpled chicken bullion cube to the dry ingredients until creamy. Slowly add the consommé soup (don’t want the dough to become too watery). Roll out dough 1/8″-1/4″ thickness and cut out shapes using cookie cutters. Bake at 350 F degrees for 15 minutes. Let cool for two hours. These biscuits last up to 3 weeks. Or, they may be frozen. Our pups like them right out of the freezer!

CHICK-BEEF DOGGIE BISCUITS: IN A JAR

Layer dry ingredients in a quart size canning jar in this order: flour, oats, powdered milk, garlic powder, chicken bouillon cube. It’ll fit, you just have to tap it down a little. If there is too much room left over at the top of the jar, add a little more oats.

DOGGIE BISCUITS RECIPE TAG

I created computer-generated recipe gift tags on the computer (which included the rest of the needed ingredients) and printed them out.  I traced the flat seal of the canning jar lid onto a scrap of gift wrap. This I cut out and inserted into the lid, then set the flat seal inside to secure it.  After using a small hole punch on the corners of the tags, I tied the tags, a doggie bone cookie cutter and a candy cane to the jar with colorful holiday ribbon.
