Cheese and Garlic Bones

These biscuits are simple to make and dogs go crazy for them.  You can use any shape cookie cutters but I like to use bones of different sizes so they can have a big chunky one on Christmas morning when we’re opening presents and the smaller ones are perfect as training treats.


They are just right to put on the tree for your own dogs (don’t leave them unattended) or to give as gifts to dog loving friends.  As a special bonus they can be eaten by humans as well.  Many a time they have made our mouths water.

The quickest way to make these biscuits is in a food processor but you can just as easily do it by hand if you prefer.

Cheese and garlic dog biscuits:

  • 250g plain flour (use any flour or a mixture of flours)
  • 2 free range eggs
  • 150g cheese grated (I use a mixture of cheddar and Parmesan)
  • 3 cloves garlic (or use easy garlic, garlic powder or garlic granules)
  • 80g fat (I use lard)
  • Water
  1. Using a food processor, mix garlic and cheese, then add flour and fat.
  2. With the machine running, add eggs, and enough water to form a ball of dough.
  3. Knead lightly by hand and roll out on a floured surface to about 3/8-inch thickness, cut out with the cutter of your choice and place on a non-stick baking sheet.
  4. Bake at 200° for 15 mins, then turn over and cook for a further 10/15 mins.
  5. Turn out onto a rack to cool and harden.

Note:  Different flours absorb different quantities of liquid so if it is dry, add more liquid, if wet, extra flour – your dogs will love them anyway!

Makes an ideal gift for dogs or dog owning friends
