These aren't your average gingerbread cookies. They may look like it, kind of, but they have ingredients like garlic and chicken stock. They were made for a special little family member with big ears for his birthday on the weekend.

This isn't a regular occurrence, I don't tend to hand make my dog his food for the week or anything like that- but I thought he is a member of our family, and a loved one at that! So, for his 2nd birthday, or 14th birthday in human years, our mate Huey deserved some Mama made biscuits for his special day.

The recipe was adapted from this book, 1001 Natural Remedies, found here.

Here's my version - based on what I had on the pantry.

Huey's Garlic Dog Biscuits
300g Wholemeal plain flour
100g cornflour
100g sesame seeds
3 eggs
50ml milk
125ml chicken stock
2tbspn olive oil
2 cloves minced garlic

Mix all dry ingredients together, mix 2 eggs, and remaining wet ingredients and add to dry ingredients, mix well, making sure you have a firm dough (I added more flour at this point). Leave to stand for 15 minutes. Roll the dough on a lightly floured surface and roll to a thickness of about 2cm. Cut into shapes, and brush the biscuits with the remaining egg. Place biscuits on baking paper and bake them at 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit) for about 30 minutes, or until they turn golden. Remove from oven and leave to cool.

It was well worth the effort, even they were so easy, because Huey LOVED them!
