  11. Allow them to cool untouched in the oven overnight. (at least 12 hours)
  12. These Decedent Gourmet Dog Biscuits store well in air-tight lidded containers. They are also excellent gifts for pet lovers, when packaged and tied with a festive ribbon.

Add 1 c couscous, reduce the cracked wheat to 1 cup (step 2) 4. Add 2 T peanut butter to the hot bullion in step 4, omit the brewer’s yeast in step 2

Health notes: Garlic is safe for our pets when used sparingly in small amounts. This recipe provides enough garlic to be of benefit to our best friend by helping to discourage flea bites, helping to rid our pets of internal parasites, and also helping to stimulate the appetite in finicky eaters. Garlic in general, is known to kill many microbes, including fungi that infects the skin (such as ringworm), and is effective as an internal aid. Garlic discourages tapeworms and other internal parasites, if fed to the animal over a period of one to two months.

Brewer’s Yeast is also used as an internal aid in preventing a flea infestation, and is high in essential vitamins.
