Homemade Dog Treats

Anna and I tried a recipe for homemade dog treats, I found it on Gardenfork. 

Groucho loves the treats! I liked that they are fresh with no preservatives. Plus, it's a great activity to make with the kids. Anna had a blast cutting them all out. We will be making another batch soon.
Isn't Groucho so cute... his teeth crack me up.

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 to 1 1/2 cups beef broth or equivalent measure of beef bullion
1 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon baking powder
Preheat the oven to 350.
Mix the Flour and Baking Powder.
Add beef broth and peanut butter.
Mix the ingredients together. You want a fairly dry batter-dough, because you will be rolling this out on a board. Adjust the mixture, adding more flour or more stock to achieve a dry yet pliable dough.
Flour a board and use a rolling pin to flatten the dough. you want it to be about 1/4″ thick. 
Cut out the biscuits using a cookie cutters.
Place the biscuits on a greased cookie sheet and back for about 20 min. If you want the biscuits to be harder-drier , bake them longer.
Taste test with your dogs. Keep in a sealed container. If refrigerated, they will last longer.
