  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). In a large bowl, combine rolled oats, margarine, and boiling water. Let stand 10 minutes. Grease cookie sheets.
  2. Thoroughly stir in cornmeal, sugar, bouillon, milk, Cheddar cheese, and egg. Mix in flour, 1 cup at a time, until a stiff dough has formed.
  3. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface, mixing in additional flour as necessary until dough is smooth and no longer sticky. Roll or pat out dough to 1/2" thickness. Cut with cookie cutter (I prefer bone shaped), and place 1 inch apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
  4. Bake 35 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown. Cool before serving. Store in a loosely covered container.

My dog loves em. This one was recommended to me by a friend, and she suggested omitting the cheese and bouillon and adding 1 cup peanut butter. Makes for a better dough too. :)

NOTE: SHORT SHELF LIFE. Unlike the biscuits you buy from the store which are good indefinitely, these are more like people cookies. I made a full batch for my little dog and had to throw most of it away after a few weeks because it turned hard and mildewed. Cut the portions down, or else freeze some of the dough or biscuits.


I have used this recipe twice for fund raisers. The treats sold like hotcakes with the proceeds going to The United Way both times. The feedback I got from dog owners was STUPENDOUS! DOGS LOVE THESE TREATS!!! One lady told me she was given a few of these by a co-worker and took them home in her purse. When she got home, her dog literally dragged her purse across the floor trying to get to them. I substitute Jiffy cornbread mix for the cornmeal (& eliminate the sugar). I also have used chicken bouillon. To cut down on work for me, I always buy the large bags of sharp shredded cheese (Kraft). This is a little more cheese than the recipe calls for, but works great. This makes a large batch, so just divide appropriately and freeze the rest for later. Bow Wow!
