Buddy Boy Beef Pies

We can't forget Fido at Christmas time, can we?  These are a hit at my house.  My dogs absolutely love them, but then my dogs love just about anything they think is a special treat.  You can give them their everyday dog food and they will gobble it up as long as it's not in their bowl.  But for for Christmas we have to have a really special meal.  These hit the spot.

2 1/2 cups wheat flour
1/2 cup powdered dry milk
3/4 cup water
1 egg beaten

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine flour and dry milk.   Mix in egg.  Add water (a little at time) so that mixture forms a ball.

Roll out dough 1/4" thick.  Cut out shapes with a biscuit cutter.  Tops and bottoms (tops a little smaller than the bottoms).

Roll the cutout shapes a little flatter to fit your muffin pan. 

 Press the larger bottom dough into your muffin tin.

Fill with meat (I used leftover roast from our Christmas party) peas and carrots.  Make sure the vegetables you use are dog friendly.  Pour a couple of teaspoons of stock over it so they don't dry out during baking.  Keep in mind, dogs can't tolerate salt and shouldn't have sugar.  I used a veggie stock, no salt or sugar added.

Cut a slit or two in the top and put it in place.  Pop them in the oven  and wait patiently while baking 17 to 20 minutes.  You can brush the top with a beaten egg to give them more of a sheen.

Store in an airtight container.  You can also freeze them for a longer shelf life, if they last that long!
