After extensive googlingresearch, the HDBlog team has traced the origins of this obscure day. IDBA Day is a relatively new holiday that is celebrated in the micronation of the Aerican Empire, the capital of which is in Montreal. A made-up holiday by a fictitious country. Who cares! It is now Roxy’s favourite day! Dog cookies! What could be better?
BASIC DOG BISCUIT RECIPE
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup skim milk powder
1 tablespoon (or 1 package) dry yeast
3 1/2 cups lukewarm chicken or meat broth
1 egg beaten with about 2 tablespoons water (for egg wash)
I N S T R U C T I O N S
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Grease cookie sheets.
Mix together all dry ingredients.
Dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm chicken or meat broth. Let yeast broth mixture set 10 min. Then stir in flour mixture until a soft dough is formed. If the dough is too sticky you can add more flour.
Roll resulting dough out 1/4″ thick. Cut dog biscuit shapes from dough. Put scraps back in bowl and re-roll out until all dough is used.
Brush biscuits with egg wash. Bake on greased cookie sheets at 300* for 45 min. Turn off oven and leave in overnight to finish hardening.
