    1                    Envelope dry yeast
    1       pn           Sugar
    2       c            Whole wheat flour
                         1 c  -Cornmeal
      1/2   c            Nonfat dry milk
    4       c            Beef or chicken broth
      1/4   c            Warm water
    3 1/2   c            All-purpose flour
    2       c            Cracked wheat --  
    1       c            Rye flour
    4       ts           Kelp powder
    1       lg           Egg
    2       tb           Milk
   Place 2 oven racks in the upper & lower thirds of the
   oven. Preheat oven to 300F.  Sprinkle the dry yeast or
   crumble the compressed yeast over the water (110F if
   dry, 100F if compressed).  Add the pinch of sugar &
   allow yeast to sit in a draft-free spot for 10-20 min.
    The mixture should be full of bubbles.  If not, the
   yeast is too old to be useful.  Stir well to dissolve
   the yeast. In a large bowl, place all the dry
   ingredients & stir well to blend them.  Add the yeast
   mixture & 3 c broth.  Using your hands, in the bowl,
   mix to form the dough, adding more broth if needed to
   make the dough smooth & supple. Half a batch at a
   time, knead the dough briefly on a lightly floured
   counter.  (Keep the 2nd batch of dough covered with a
   moist towel while shaping and cutting the first.) Roll
   out the dough into 18 x 13 x 1/4-inch rectangle.  Cut
   into desired shapes using 3 1/2 inch bone cutter or 2
   1/2 inch cookie cutter. Reroll the scraps.  Repeat
   procedure with remaining dough. For an attractive
   shine, lightly beat together the egg and the milk.
    Brush the glaze on the cookies. Bake for 45 - 60
   minutes or until brown & firm.  For even baking,
   rotate the cookie sheets from top to bottom 3/4 of the
   way thru the baking period.  Use a small, angled metal
   spatula to transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool
   completely.  Store in an airtight container at room
   temp. -cracked wheat & kelp are available at most
   health food stores -Use 2 cups of bran cereal (not
   flakes) in place of the cracked wheat, if desired.
   If your dog is large, make larger cookies
   Allow the cookie sheets to cool completely before
   using for the next batch Distribute cookies evenly
   around sheet; avoid crowding or
