Found on internet, used to put dry ingredients in jar for gifting

Directions

  1. In large bowl pour hot water over the margarine. Stir in powdered milk, salt, and egg. Add flour, 1/2 cup at a time. Knead for a few minutes to form stiff dough. Pat or roll to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into bone shapes. Bake at 325 degrees for 50 minutes. Cool. They will dry out quite hard. Makes about 1 1/4 pounds of biscuits. Costs around 30 cents per pound.
  2. Variation: increase margarine to 1/2 cup and add 2 teaspoons sugar.

Really like the recipe very easy to make and my dog's love them! I do use beef or chicken broth instead of the water and also coffee creamer instead of the powdered milk, also add a bit more flour as it needs it in order to even be able to roll out and cut into shapes

HORRIBLE RECIPE, they stick like there is no tomorrow and they are NOT roll out biscuits. WAY too sticky I added an extra 2 cups of flour and STILL too sticky

Easy to make, and easy to afford to make! I use these on my paper route to ward off unfriendly pooches. Really works! Baked for the stated time and then left in the oven to dry overnight. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
