I have to bake cookies for people this week, so I thought I might bake a batch of treats for my dogs, too.
While I was trolling around on Paula Deen’s website (just roll me in butter and deep fry me in mayonnaise, y’all) I found this simple recipe for canine peanut butter cookies. I admit I find it most appealing because A. I have all the ingredients without making a stop at Kroger and B. I am relatively sure I can tell the difference between these and the ones I bake for people.
Not that I am admitting to any problems like that in the past, mind you.
Here’s the recipe or you can just click the link above:
BODEEN’S PEANUT BUTTER DOG BISCUITS
Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 40 min
3/4 cup nonfat milk
1 cup peanut butter, smooth
2 1/4 to 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon Baking Powder
PreHeat – 325°
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the milk, egg and peanut butter. Add in the flour and baking powder to make a very stiff dough, using your hands to work in the last of the flour if necessary. (Paula’s note: as a general rule, most homemade dog biscuits do well with 1 part liquid to 3 parts dry. You can customize the recipe by adding and subtracting ingredients your dog likes.)
Flour a work surface and roll out dough to a 1/4” thickness. Cut into desired sizes depending on the size of your dog. Bake on a parchment lined baking tray for approximately 20 minutes. Turn biscuits over and bake for an additional 15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container. Bodeen’s Dog Biscuits can also be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.
