How does this only yield one pound? Just the 4 cups of flour alone weighs more than 4 pounds. Add the remaining ingredients and you are at almost 2 lbs. do you really lose 50% of the dough weight after cooking? Impossible. Great recipe but the yield is way off.
This recipe is excellent. Never made dog treats before and they turned out great. Gave to about 10 colleagues of mine and all their dogs loved them. My dogs actually sat beside me while making them because I let them try some after the first baking. The only thing I did different was after the first 30 min. bake I cut in biscotti shaped biscuite, BUT then, Cut biscuits in half and cubed them from there. I wanted bite sized treats. They are perfect!
I made these as Xmas gifts from our beagle (who'll eat anything, so she wasn't much of a critic) to her pals...a great dane, in particular. Now, Angus refuses to come inside unless one of these cookies is in hand!! He's too funny about them- if it's not whole (and yes, he can tell) he'll spit it out until a whole one appears! I ADORE this recipe!!
I made these as a fun gift for some friends who have much-loved critters, and they were thrilled. Almost as mucb as the dogs were, who, I am told, loved them and very happily devoured them. Thanks for a fun, great recipe and for a cute gift idea.
These treats not only had the approval of my eat-anything Weimaraners, but my sister's super picky dogs ate them up and asked for more. I will be making this again: it's a healthy treat for the fur kids.
My Bichon loves these!!! They were fairly easy and not super messy like some dog teats I've made. I got about 54 large treats and 4 small ones. They make your house smell awesome like pumpkin pie!! I will make these again!!
Fairly recently we got two 3-yr-old rescue mini schnauzers, so decided to use this recipe for some treats! I can't testify to the taste myself, but the way the dogs devour them, I'd say THESE ARE GREAT TREATS! I did get around 50 of them since I cut each of the 'cookies' in half before baking them the 2nd time! Thanks for pleasing my schnauzers! [Tagged, made & reviewed in My-3-Chefs]
