Christmas treats

Today was spent making Christmas treats for our furry family members. Riker, Annie and Molly love these treats! The breeder that we got Riker and Annie from sent us the recipe a couple of years ago. The dogs line up in the kitchen for these when they are cooking. I will say these are not an amazing aroma like baking cookies but it's not a bad smell.

Peanut Butter Pooch Cookies
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup white flour
1/4 cup oatmeal
1 1/4 TBSP Baking Powder
1 TBSP honey
1 cup peanut butter
1 1/4 cup milk

Combine flours, oatmeal, baking powder. Combine milk, peanut butter and honey in a separate bowl and mix well. Stir peanut butter mixture into the flour/oatmeal mixture. Knead dough and roll out on floured surface to 1/4" thickness. Cut into treats using a cookie cutter. Place on a non stick cookie sheet and bake at 400 degree oven for approximately 15 minutes. 10 for small cookies.
I have found that these last longer in an air tight container.

I found these cute bone shaped cookie cutters at Bed Bath and Beyond. There are 3 sizes in a cute little tin.
I hope your fur babies enjoy these treats like mine do.
Merry furry Christmas!
