To the recipe
In addition to quark and cheese, we actually only use some flour, egg, and oil in this baking recipe for dog biscuits.
You can use any type or mix of soft to hard semi-hard cheeses for these dog biscuits, such as:
- Gouda cheese
- Butter cheese
Soft cheeses have a higher water content than harder cheeses. Depending on the cheese you have to knead a little more or less flour into your dough.
Edible quark contains slightly more fat than low-fat quark. Since there is already plenty of it due to the cheese, it is best to use low-fat quark for baking.
Instructions for dog biscuits with cheese and quark
Cookie-cutter cookies couldn’t be much easier:
- Blend all ingredients together.
- Knead until a smooth dough forms. If necessary, add a little more water or flour to the dough.
- Roll out thinly and cut out.
- Bake at 170°C for about 15 minutes.
Save cheese biscuits
Of course, homemade delicacies do not keep indefinitely. Think about it before you get the baking fever!
If you have really baked too much, you can temporarily store the biscuits in the fridge for a few days. And portioned quantities can also be frozen without any problems.
Otherwise, the following applies: The drier the biscuits were baked, the longer they can be stored due to their lower moisture content. Letting it cool down in the still-warm oven is sometimes enough.
Choose an open container and store the dog biscuits in the fresh air or in a cloth bag. Liquid collects easily in closed containers (especially when the biscuits are transferred while they are still warm! ) and the pastry spoils more quickly.
Also, keep in mind that cheesecake can of course leave grease stains.
More about this recipe
Dogs are usually very grateful test eaters for our baked creations. So feel free to change this recipe.
For example, you can add herbs or honey, color it with spinach powder or beetroot powder, or replace some or all of the ingredients. Depending on the composition, you will need a little more or a little less flour.
With 1-2 eggs more and/or a little less flour, you get a very liquid dough, with which you can also use the recipe in the baking mat.
To make the recipe grain-free, you can also use potato starch or buckwheat flour instead of grain flour.
By the way, a very similar recipe (I even used the same cutter, haha) is these cheese stars with yogurt.
