Doggy Biscuits You will need: 1 large egg 1/2 c. shredded sharp Cheddar cheese 1/4 c. grated Parmesan chees 1/4 to 1/2 c. or more hot chicken or beef broth or very hot water optional, additional flour and hot water
Position rack in center of oven. Preheat to 250. Place mix in a medium size bowl. Add the egg, Cheddar and Parmesan cheeses, and hot broth. Make a dough that is very heavy, but not sticky. Add more flour or water, 1 teaspoon at a time if dough is too moist (use flour) or too dry (use hot water). Turn out dough onto a floured pastry cloth and knead 8 to 10 times until elastic. Let dough rest for 5 minutes. Roll out 1/2 of an inch thick and cut with a dog-bone shaped cutter. Place cookies close together as they will not spread. Bake for 1 hour. Rotate the baking trays in the oven (turn tray around 180 degrees), and bake them another half hour. Cool the cookies in the pan for 1 minute, then transfer to a wire cake rack to cool completely.
