1/2 hour at 400 should do the trick!

2 eggs

1 cup cooked squash

2 tablespoons dry milk

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

2 1/2 cups  flour *

 

Preheat oven to 350

 

Scrape out the squash from the shell.  Whisk together eggs and squash In a large bowl until smooth. Stir in dry milk and sea salt. Add the flour gradually, combining with spatula or hands to form a stiff, dry dough.treats2

 

Turn out dough onto lightly floured surface and, briefly knead and press to combine if dough is still rough.

 

Roll dough flat between 1/4 – 1/2″ – depending on your dog’s chew preferences, – and use a biscuit or other shape cutter to punch shapes, re-rolling scraps as you go.  Place shapes on cookie sheet, no greasing necessary.Treats1

 

Bake 20 minutes. Remove cookie sheet from oven and carefully turn biscuits over, then bake additional 20 minutes. Allow to cool completely on rack before feeding to dog.

Makes up to 75 small (1″) biscuits or about 50 medium biscuits

 

*Because you are adding in the flour gradually, you may only end up using 2 cups.  This is a judgment call.

NOTE:  Some dogs have touchy stomachs or allergies, and do not tolerate regular flour.  Using brown rice flour as a substitute to regular white flour will give the biscuits crunch and actually promotes better digestion for your dog.
