Sourdough Doggie Biscuits

"What a great way to use up some of that extra sourdough starter and that little dab of canned pumpkin that's always left when your recipe calls for 1 cup. I created this recipe and I think it turned out really good. My dog, Clyde, thinks so too!"

Ready In:
1hr 10mins
3 1/2 dozen large bones




  • Combine the first 5 ingredients with an electric mixer.
  • Add the oats and as much of the flour as you can until the dough is too hard to mix.
  • Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead in the remaining flour.
  • Dough should be stiff, but not crumbly.
  • Roll out dough about 1/2-inch thick and cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters, or for a quicker version just cut 1/2-inch wide strips with a pizza cutter or knife, and then cut strips to 2-inch lengths.
  • Place on ungreased cookie sheets and bake at 325°F for 20 minutes.
  • Turn biscuits over and bake another 20 minutes.
  • Turn off oven and open door so it's ajar to let out excess heat for a few minutes and then close door and leave biscuits in oven until all the heat is gone.
  • If there is still moisture in the biscuits, let them air-dry until they are completely hard and crisp before storing.

Questions & Replies

  1. How long can these be kept after baking?


  1. My doggies love these and it's become a staple.
  2. I agree, an awesome way to use up excess starter. Both my dogs LOVE it, stored in an airtight container in the fridge, and now the dogs both sit at attention whenever I open the door. No worry about how long they keep, they won't last that long with my two
  3. How long will these keep? Open air/fridge/freezer, etc. I am thinking about substituting sweet potato for the pumpkin.
  4. Made these a few times. Our dog loves them. One time I substituted sweet potatoes for the pumpkin.
  5. Our greyhound just loves these. I used some of my new sourdough starter and they turned out great. I didn't quite have enough starter so added water to make up the difference. The dough was easy to form and cut into dog biscuits.
