Ginger Basil Dog Biscuits

There are a few herbs that are good for both humans and dogs alike. So, I got to thinking about combinations that sounded like something I would eat and I came up with these.

Since I used fresh basil, garlic, and ginger I only used small amounts.

Anyway, here’s the recipe.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 cup 2% milk
P1000886 1 tsp. fresh basil, finely chopped

P1000885 1/2 tsp. fresh ginger, grated and 1 small clove of garlic, minced.

P1000887 The dough will be sticky. Roll the dough out, using flour as needed to help keep it from sticking to the rolling pin and table.

P1000889  I used a small flour shaped cutter and a small star shaped cutter. I dipped them in a little flour before each cut to keep it from sticking too.

P1000890 Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes. Here they are!!!

I made small treats because our dog is small and she has to have a treat every time she comes back in from being outside. (Yes– she’s sneaky that way!!) I did eat one of them (so did my husband). We both couldn’t believe how good they tasted. I’m actually thinking about using this combination in a biscuit, it would definitely be delicious with beef stew this Winter.

Hope your four legged friend enjoys them as much as mine!! ~ Bam
