Christmas tree and star shaped biscuits for dogs

Homemade dog biscuits

Make Christmas fun for your dog by making them some delicious festive inspired shaped biscuits

What you’ll need:

  • One egg
  • 170g boiled chicken breast
  • 100g cooked plain rice
  • ¼ pint chicken stock (homemade chicken stock or stock with no added salt is best)
  • 680g plain flour

Note: Treats should be given occasionally and alongside a well-balanced diet. Always check with your vet if your dog has any special dietary requirements. 

Utensils:

  • Blender or food processor
  • Christmas themed cookie cutters or a skilled, steady hand and a toothpick 
  • Rolling pin
  • Baking paper
  • Baking tray

How to make them:

  1. Preheat oven to 180°c
  2. Place baking paper onto a baking tray
  3. Pop the boiled chicken breast, cooked rice and chicken stock into a blender and blitz until it looks like puree
  4. Transfer the mixture into a bowl and add in the egg and flour – mix well
  5. Dust some flour onto a clean, flat surface
  6. Turn the mixture out of the mixing bowl and onto the floured surface
  7. Knead the dough until it stops being sticky
  8. Roll the dough out with a rolling pin – you want to aim for about half an inch in thickness
  9. Get your cookie cutter or steady hand and shape out your Christmas biscuits
  10. Place these onto the baking tray and put in the oven
  11. Leave to cook for around 25 to 30 minutes
  12. Let them cool and serve up to your pooch!
