Our dog Buttercup is a doggie gourmet and a genuine food snob. But even she loves these homemade Apple Cinnamon Dog Biscuits created with the help of our friends from the Humane Society!
This is just one of the recipes that the Humane Society asks volunteers to make for the dogs staying at the shelter. Your dog will enjoy chomping down on these Buttercup approved tasty treats, too.

- ½ cup water
- 1 large egg
- 3 cups whole wheat flour

- Sift flour & cinnamon together.
- Add the flour & cinnamon mixture to the wet mixture in 2 or 3 additions, stirring well after each addition.

- Cut the dough into about 1″ pieces and arrange on an ungreased baking sheet.
- Bake about 20 minutes, until firm to the touch. Allow to cool completely.
