Man's Best Friend

Remember my culinary mystery love? Here's another Diane Mott Davidson recipe for you. Well, not for you, so much. It's for your dog. The four-legged member of your family. They need to feel the love too, right? Some pets are pickier than others, picky pets will like these treats. Un-picky pets will like them too. Even dogs like mine, who'll eat anything (seriously, anything) that you throw out to them, they'll lap 'em up too.

Jake's Dog Biscuits
by Diane Mott Davidson

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup powdered milk
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. brown sugar
6 tbsp. margarine or shortening
1 egg, beaten
3 tbsp. liver powder
1/2 cup ice water

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, combine flour, powdered milk, garlic powder, salt and sugar. Cut in shortening. Mix in egg, then add liver powder. Add ice water until mixture forms a ball. Pat out dough 1/2 inch thick on a lightly oiled cookie sheet. Cut with any size cutter and remove scraps. Bake 30 minutes. Cool before serving.

By the title I was a little worried what the main ingredient for the recipe was going to be.
