Dog Biscuits

You know who is cute?
Mr Handsome, yes. And sometimes he needs treats. A lot of them upset his stomach or give him even worse breath (and we really don't need that), and really, it's fun to make dog biscuits. A nice way to spoil your dog. Vary as needed if your adorable beast also has a tendency to spontaneously vomit when fed certain ingredients.
I usually double the batch and make fairly small treats, as they function as rewards on walks, and he believes it is his responsibility to exercise not just himself, but any squirrels we might see. It's also nice for anyone who walks by and just wants to give the dog a treat for a sit-stay-paw. (Not that any dog would mind a giant treat each time, but we love him too much to do that to him).
As a bonus, if anyone is curious, people can eat them too .

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup rolled oats (old fashioned is what I use, quick cooking will be fine too)
1 tbsp dried parsley (this is supposed to give dogs better breath (and is therefore in many treats), but just makes Merlin throw up - so I stopped adding it. Feel free to try it though, it would not be in as may treats if this were a common problem. Mr Delicate just has a sensitive stomach.)

2 large eggs
1 cup peanut butter

Stir to combine, the mixture may be crumbly.

Add enough of ½ cup + 1tbsp cold milk or water (I’ve used both - the original calls for water and powdered milk, which is really just reconstituting milk. I did not have powdered milk, so I just used regular milk in place of water, and again, Mr Delicate, so often I just use water) to bring the dough together.
Roll out the dough and cut it into shapes.

Bake at 300°F for 40-60 minutes. When finished, the biscuits will be dark golden brown and will by dry and crisp all the way through.
Cool the biscuits on the pan.
Biscuits keep for a few months in an airtight container.
