Blackberry Dog Biscuits

Spoil your dog like he was a truffle dog at Blackberry Farm.  This recipe will make quite a few so you can make, roll, cut and freeze unbaked.


3 lb. 8 oz. unbleached all purpose flour

1 lb. wheat germ

8 t. baking powder

4 Knorr chicken bouillon cubes

1 lb. butter

1 lb. fat from kitchen stock

2 c. tomato juice

2 oz. spearmint, chopped fine


Combine flour, wheat germ and baking powder in a mixer with the paddle.  Break the chicken bouillon cubes into small pieces and add to the dry ingredients, along with the butter and the fat.  Mix until mixture is crumbly.  Add the tomato juice and the mint, mixing until the dough comes together in a ball.  Divide into 4 portions and roll each portion on a lightly floured table to about 1/8” thick.  Cut with a cookie cutter and place biscuits on a papered sheet pan.  Bake at 350 for 5 minutes, turn pan and bake for 5 minutes more.  Biscuits should be firm to the touch.  Turn oven off, leave doors slightly open and let biscuits dry in the oven for about 30 minutes.  Let cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
