DOG BISCUITS

1 Envelope Active Dry Yeast
¼ Cup Warm Water
1 Cup Warm Beef Broth or Bullion
2 Tablespoons Molasses
1¾ to 2 Cups All Purpose Flour
Cups Whole Wheat Flour
1 Cup Wheat Germ
½ Cup Cornmeal
½ Cup Dry Milk Powder
1 Teaspoon Salt
2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder
1 Large Egg
1 Tablespoon Milk

Combine yeast and warm water; let stand for 5 minutes.  Stir in beef broth and molasses.  Stir in 1 cup all-purpose flour and next 6 ingredients.  Mix until dough forms.  
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface.  Knead in enough remaining flour to make a very stiff dough (5-minutes).  Divide dough in half.  Cover and let rest 10 minutes.  
Roll each portion to ¼ inch thickness.  Cut with a cookie cutter and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Combine Egg and 1 Tablespoon milk, and brush over biscuits with pastry brush.
Bake at 300° for 35 minutes or until lightly brown.  Turn the oven off, open the oven door slightly and allow biscuits to cool in the oven overnight.  
Yield:  20 to 25 biscuits depending on size and thickness

ISABOSCOTTI

Here`s the Rachael Ray recipe for the peanut butter biscotti that she made for her dogs and named after her dog Isaboo. However, I read that the crunchy peanut butter is not good for dogs, so I use creamy instead of what is in her recipe. I also read that someone thought they saw Rachel Ray put an egg in when she made the dog cookies on TV. They were a bit crumbly the first time I made them, so I put an egg in the second time, and that seemed to help. Another recipe I found used a little vanilla in it. You don`t need a whole cup of carob chips. There was enough for two batches of cookies when I used a whole cup. You may have to use a bit more water when melting the chips to make the icing more spreadable. I was surprised that it actually looked like ganache! 
The dogs really like these cookies! And they come out looking just like biscotti if you slice them correctly. Next time I think I am going to try one myself before I let the dogs eat them all! 

Ingredients:
2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 pinches ground cinnamon
1 cup chunky peanut butter
1 cup milk
1 cup carob chips

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine that flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Place the peanut butter in a medium bowl and microwave at high power to soften, 5 to 10 seconds. Whisk in the milk, then stir the mixture into the dry ingredients.
Shape the dough into a long, flattened log and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes; remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Slice the log crosswise on an angle into 1-inch-thick pieces. Set the slices on their sides (they should look like biscotti) and bake until crisp, 10 to 12 minutes more. Transfer to a rack to cool.
Melt the carob in a microwave or on the stove top over low heat. Thin the melted carob with 1 tablespoon water, if needed. Using a spoon, drizzle the melted carob over the biscuits. Let cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
