Additional Ingredients:

1 large egg
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 to 1/2 cup (or more) hot chicken, beef broth or very hot water.

1. Position a rack in the center of the oven. Preheat it to 250 F. Place Dog Biscuit Mix ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Add in egg, shredded sharp cheddar cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, hot chicken, beef broth or very hot water.

2. Make dough that's very heavy, but not sticky. Add more flour or water, 1 teaspoon at a time if dough is too moist (use flour) or too dry (use hot water).

3. Turn out dough onto a floured pastry cloth and knead 8-10 times until elastic. Let dough rest for 5 minutes. Roll out dough 1/2 of an inch thick and cut with a dog-bone cutter or a small drinking glass. Place cookies closely together as they will not spread.

4. Bake for 1 hour, rotate the baking trays in the oven (turn tray around 180), and bake them another half hour. Cool the cookies in the pan for 1 minute, then transfer to a wire cake rack to cool completely. Feed cookies to dog(s).

*TIP: The dough setting on a bread machine works great
