Yes, those are absolutely fire hydrant and kitty cookie cutters. If you're gonna do it, do it right.
Cheesy Dog-Bone Biscuits
4 oz. Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Grated
4 Tablespoons Butter, softened and cut into about 16 pieces
3/4 cup All-Purpose Unbleached Flour (plus extra for rolling dough)
1/4 teaspoon salt (it calls for half but I reduced it)
I added about 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (dogs love it)
1 Tablespoon Half-and-Half (I needed a little more, about double)
Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor, combine cheese, butter, flour and salt; pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add half-and-half; process on low speed until dough forms a ball (add a little more half-and-half if ball doesn't form).
On a lightly floured surface (again, I used the large Silpat for rolling) using a lightly floured rolling pin, roll dough out to approx. 1/8-inch thick. Cut biscuits with a cookie cutter and transfer to an ungreased (Silpat- or parchment- covered) cookie sheet. Bake 15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Let cool.
One happy customer:
Stella sat by the oven the entire time they were baking. My furry girls loved them and your dogs and your friends' dogs will love them, too!
