Bacon Biscuits-for Fido

My dogs are my faithful companions and are often (okay ALWAYS) under my feet when I'm cooking. If you here yelps, obscenities, and other war like sounds from the direction of my kitchen? Yea, its my dogs getting stepped on, tripping me, or otherwise causing themselves or me harm. They are AWESOME floor cleaners when I make a mess though!

So to be fair, I decided to start making them treats. (and lets face it, I need to use that whole flour up for something because its frankly not that great in people food. LOL)

This is the first recipe I've tried and while the dough is a bit dry and the "biscuits" are not very pretty, my dogs think they are the greatest things on the planet and have not left my side in two days. I also find them staring at the green bowl on the table and drooling.

Bacon Biscuits
Ingredients:
2 eggs
1 1/4 cup milk
1/2 c. water
10 tbsp bacon fat
5 cups whole wheat flour

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray cookie sheet.

In KA Mixer with paddle attachment, mix ingredients to a thick dough. Use a small cookie scoop to create biscuit balls on the cookie sheet. Bake for 35 minutes till crispy.

Makes about 2 dozen.

Hi I'm visiting from Lady Bloggers Tea party too. I should maybe make these for my dog so I can finally get him to like me better than he likes my husband.

I actually have all the ingredients! I think I might make them, even though I'm sure it will start a fight between my husband and dogs over who gets to eat the bacon fat. Lol
(yeah he's gross like that)
