Jezzie and Bruti just love treats like pretty much any dog does and I get a special satisfaction out of making them homemade treats so here are a couple of yummy recipes – Pooch Approved!!

Cheesy Dog Biscuits

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/4 cups grated cheddar cheese
1/4 pound margarine — corn oil
1 clove garlic — crushed
1 pinch salt
1/4 cup Milk — or as needed

Grate the cheese into a bowl and let stand until it reaches room temperature. Cream the cheese with the softened margarine, garlic, salt and flour. Add enough milk to form into a ball.

Chill for 1/2 hour. Roll onto floured board. Cut into shapes and bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until slightly brown, and firm.

Makes 2 to 3 dozen, depending on size.

An Apple a Day Dog Treat

1/2 cup unbleached flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 apple — chopped or grated
1 egg — beaten
1/3 cup vegetable oil
