FRANKLIN FRIDAY: A SPECIAL RECIPE FOR MISS SOPHIE AND OTHER DOGGIES

Dear Miss Sophie,

I commented on your bootiful blog that we make biscuits for doggies right here at home. They are so delicious.

Your daddy Ron asked for the recipe. Mom said I could share it.

First, get out a nice big bowl because it's a good idea to make a double batch of this recipe. It's nice to share with neighbor doggies, such as Otis next door who takes care of Hot Young Anthony and Sweet Young Allison. The biscuits also make good Christmas gifts for all your doggie friends.

Get all your ingredients ready, too.



Next, find someone to help. Tell him you'll share the biscuits with him if he helps with the stirring. My helper is my brother Harper Lee.


Now here's the recipe for plain doggie biscuits:

Mix 1/2 cup dry milk, 1 teaspoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of salt, 6 tablespoons of oil, 1 egg, and 2/3 cup of cold water. Gradually stir in 2 1/2 cups of flour. Knead, roll out, and cut into shapes. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. We have a bone-shaped biscuit cutter, but sometimes we use Mom's other cookie cutters, too. We like a variety of shapes.

We also like a variety of tastes. We've figured out that we can substitute 6 tablespoons of peanut butter for the oil. I don't know if there's anything in the whole world better than a fresh peanut butter biscuit.

Sometimes we add a little peppermint to the plain recipe because Mom says it improves our breath. I don't know what she's talking about.

We've never tried it, but we've heard that some doggies put meat for babies in their biscuits. You can try anything you want, Miss Sophie, as long as it's okay with your dads.

 

You are gonna love these biscuits, Miss Sophie, just the way 
I love you. Don't tell anyone I said that. It makes me blush.

I hope all you good doggies out there will get some biscuits. And remember, there's no such thing as a bad dog. Some dogs don't do everything they should because nobody taught them or took care of them.

P.S. Here's a note from Mom: I can make the biscuits a bit faster when Franklin and Harper don't help. I mix the biscuits with the dough hooks on my mixer. The dough hooks also do the kneading. When the boys knead the biscuits, they get a lot of dough under their nails.

    1. I wonder if dogs like pumpkin. Harper, and some dogs who are no longer with us, love any kind of melon. Some of the dogs have loved apples.

  3. I didn't know you could make homemade doggy biscuits. I'll make some for Schultz. I wonder if he'll think they're better than tacos.

    1. These biscuits don't have preservatives. I think they're healthier than biscuits from the grocery store.

  5. Franklin, I don't watch many cooking shows on tv, but if you did a cooking show, I would drop everything and plant myself in front of the tv to watch.

    Does your mom ever want to taste your biscuits?

    1. Gosh, thanks, Mrs. Shelly. Mom thinks the biscuits smell good, but she doesn't eat them because she has lots of self-control.

    1. No, Mrs. fishducky. Mom is still eating high protein. She avoids carbs.
