- 1-1/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup stick margarine, softened
- 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 to 2 garlic cloves, minced
- Dash salt
- 6 to 8 tablespoons milk
- In a bowl, beat the cheese and margarine. Add the flour, garlic and salt; mix well. Add enough milk to form a stiff dough. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Roll out dough to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with a bone-shaped cookie cutter. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Remove to wire racks. Biscuits will harden as they cool. Yield: 1-1/2 to 2 dozen (depending on cookie cutter size).
Reviews for Garlic-Cheese Dog Biscuits

I agree about the garlic. My vet said NO garlic (especially powderd garlic.) Very toxic! Anyway, I substitued Hormel Real Bacon Bits for the garlic. It also seemed like a little too much milk. I didn't add quite as much of the milk. I also just rolled into balls and used a fork to mark the tops like little peanut-butter cookies. The only thing I need to know is about storing them. Refridgerate or not? I'd rather not...but I was wondering because of the cheese, milk, eggs and bacon bits. My dog LOVES these! She kept sniffing around for more, even after she had already eaten two cookies! I will make these again! Please reply about the storage! Thank You!
I make this almost every week for my dog. I substituted garlic cheese roll for the shredded cheddar and garlic cloves. Yummy!
According to the ASPCA, an occasional small amount of garlic, such as that in most commercial pet foods and treats, may not cause a problem, but because of the risk of toxicity, they generally recommend that you avoid feeding your pets products that contain more concentrated amounts of garlic.
To follow this recommendation, we will reduce the range of garlic cloves to 1-2 cloves (instead of 1-4). The change will be updated here soon.

I agree that garlic is bad for dogs. Our vet gave us a list of poisonous foods. It says that garlic can cause anemia and even kidney failure. It says it wont cause harm in very small doses, but why risk it?
i've never heard garlic was bad for dogs either, it's supposed to keep parasites away too, it's a GOOD thing. I haven't tried this recipe yet, but plan to soon.
