They should be hard. They may harden after you take them out of the oven. Basically they should be brown on top, if they dont harden, stick them back in the oven for a few more minutes.

The dog biscuits should be hard, the puppy treats I havent made in ages, so I cannot remember if those were suppose to be soft, but since your dogs like them, I guess thats the best.

They did harden up a little after cooling off.
Oh well, the babies love them. I'm not sure which one they like best.

Oh yeah, my kids are ticked off because they don't get any homemade cookies
I told them go ahead, it wouldn't kill them

Your right there, kids and adults could probably eat these biscuits

RE: the garlic in the recipe
some people believe that dogs should never be fed garlic. onions and garlic, especially onions, contain a substance called thiosulphate that can lead to anemia in dogs. garlic has much less thiosulphate than onions, but it is still the subject of some debate as many pet treats etc. contain small amounts of garlic for flavor. .. some believe that no amount is safe, esp. in the long term. either way, large amounts of garlic should be avoided and onions should never be fed to dogs, this includes leftovers containing onions. i would leave the garlic out of the recipe myself... do a google on garlic and dogs and you will come up with pages of stuff about garlic/onion toxicity in dogs.

I've read that "large" quantities may cause toxicity in pets (dogs and cats), but the tiny amount in these biscuits shouldnt cause a problem, especially if you dont give them biscuits often. These are meant to be a treat every now and then. It's good that you mentioned it though HappyAvocado. I certainly dont want anyone to have a sick pet! I guess when in doubt, call your vet to be sure of the amount of garlic that is suitable for pets given their weight, etc.
