We can’t forget our Canine “kids” during the holiday season!
The time between Thanksgiving and New Year’s is extremely busy with Christmas shopping, decorating the house, holiday parties, baking, and cooking and a zillion other things we need to get done. I’ve been baking Christmas cookies this weekend and I didn’t want the “boyz” (our dogs Irish & Bailey) to be left out. I discovered this fantastic holiday treat I could bake for them.
Our Canine “kids” are the ones that are so happy to see us when we come home they act like they haven’t seen us for months! They are loyal, enthusiastic and give us unconditional love. They are our constant companions and make us smile, laugh and fill our hearts with joy, so this Christmas and every day they deserve all the love and attention and special treats we can give them! By the way, the “boyz” loved their peanut butter cookies!!
Peanut Butter Dog Cutout Cookies
- 2 Cups whole wheat flour
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- 1 Cup all natural peanut butter
- 1 Cup lowfat or skim milk
- 1/2 Cup oatmeal
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a cookie sheet.
In a medium mixing bowl, add the flour, baking powder and oatmeal. Once that’s mixed, add the peanut butter and milk. Stir it together until a dough forms.
Roll the dough out on a floured board, using cookie cutters, cut into desired shapes.
Bake on the lightly greased cookie sheet for about 15-20 minutes.
Once cool, let your favorite pup enjoy before storing them in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or freeze for longer storage.
Judging from the photos, I think your dogs liked these 🙂
Yes, they loved the cookies! 🙂 They now know what cookies are!
