The ingredients are as follows (makes about 20 biscuits)
2 cups of strong grated Vegan cheese;
3 cups of whole-wheat flour
6 tablespoons of vegetable oil
Approximately 250ml of vegetable stock – or 1 stock cube dissolved in 250 – 260ml of boiling water. Make sure the cube fully dissolves in the water.
We use a bone shaped pastry cutter about 10-12 cm long.
How to make (about 20 biscuits):
Mix all the ingredients together very well (cheese, veg. stock, flour and vegetable oil) in a large bowl using enough of the vegetable stock to make a good but not over wet, pliable dough which binds everything together. Add a little more flour if ‘wet’ and sticky.
Roll out and cut into approx. 20 biscuits using the cutter.
Use a cutter if required for special shapes (ie we use a bones shaped one).
Place on an oiled / non stick baking tray.
The biscuit ‘egg wash’.
Once the biscuit mix has been cut into shape and placed on the oiled baking tray, use light/regular olive oil, vegan margarine, or light corn syrup thinned with a bit of water (to prevent over browning) as a type off egg wash. Use any left over cheese to put on top of the prepared biscuits. This can be put on top of the prepared biscuits before they are put into the oven as the cheese will melt to give even more crunch and appeal to the dogs who eat them.
Put the biscuit tray(s) into the oven set to 200°C for around 25 minutes – until crispy and crunchy.
