Dog Treat Recipe – Tail Twists

by  |  Treat Recipes  |  Comments (3)  | 
Your dog will beg for one of these Tail Twists.

Cheesy twists are perfect for a poochie party! The Flaxseed adds a crunchy, nutty flavor and is rich in essential fatty acids and fiber, helping to maintain a healthy immune system.

You Will Need:

10 oz (300 g) wheat and gluten free flour
2 oz (50 g) low fat cheddar cheese
1 oz (25 g) low fat parmesan cheese, grated
1 tablespoon chopped thyme
2 tablespoons milled flaxseed
4 fl oz (125 ml) olive oil
3½ fl oz (105 ml) cold water

  • Mix the flour, cheese, thyme and flaxseed in a large bowl. Add the oil and combine. Add the water a little at a time until the mixture forms a firm dough.
  • Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface and divide into 1½ inch (3.5 cm) balls. Roll out each ball into a 6 inch (15 cm) sausage. Pat lightly with the rolling pin to flatten, then hold both ends and twist in opposite directions.
  • Place the twists on a greased baking sheet, ½ inch (1 cm) apart. Bake in a preheated oven. 325°F (160°C) for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown in color. Remove from the oven and leave the twists to cool on the baking sheet. The twists will keep for 7-10 days in an airtight tin or container.

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 30-35 minutes
Makes 32-34 treats

    I like your treat recipe but must point out an error for those of us that use the metric measurements. Your recipe calls for 10 ml of water. This should have been 110 ml of water. Will have to give this a try and see what my four dogs think of the treat. Many thanks for your website.
