Good Pet Reward Snacks                                           
This recipe serves two good dogs or cats.

3½ cups all purpose flour, plus extra
1 cup cornmeal
½ cup powdered nonfat milk
2 cups low-salt chicken or beef broth
1 cup rye flour
2 cups wheat germ
1 pkg. (2½ teas.) dry yeast
1 beaten egg

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl.  Add broth and mix well.  Turn out dough on a floured surface and flatten with hands.  Use a rolling pin to roll the dough to a ½-inch thickness.  Use cookie cutters or a knife to shape dough into snack-size shapes (if making for cats, cut to an appropriately small size).  Place the snack cutouts on a baking sheet and brush the tops with the beaten egg.  Bake the snacks for 30-40 minutes or until crisp.  Allow to cool on a rack before serving to your pet.  Snacks can be stored in an airtight jar.
