Doggy doggy, where's your bone?

It was the next thing he picked from the bored jar... one I have been putting off for a long time (only because it requires effort on my part).

Our next door neighbors have a German Shepherd, Ty, that Case watches everyday from our kitchen window. He desperately wanted to make him a treat.
Then he started naming all of his doggy friends.
So we got to work.

He delivered them to all of the neighbor dogs. Word is that they all loved the treats and want more.

Doggy Treats
Martha Stewart

2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for surface
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup brewer's yeast
2 teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons canola oil
1 1/2 cups homemade or store-bought low-sodium chicken stock

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment. Combine flour, wheat germ, brewer's yeast, and salt in a large bowl. Place canola oil in a large bowl. Add flour mixture to oil in 3 additions, alternating with 1 cup stock; mix until combined.

  2. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface for 2 minutes (dough will be sticky). Roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out shapes. Transfer to baking sheets. Freeze for 15 minutes. Bake for 20 minutes, rotating sheets and lightly brushing with remaining 1/2 cup chicken stock halfway through. Turn oven off, and let stand in oven for 40 minutes.

Makes about two dozen.
Can be stored at room temperature for up to one month.
