Hello there friends and family.....
Today I wanted to share with you a very simple recipe for home made dog cookies that I use. I don't like buying my four legged kids the cookies from the store because they have too much junk in them and who knows where they are made. If I make my own at least I know what they are eating...
As for this recipe, you can add as much or as little as you like. I tend to make mine on the wetter side because of my RA which affects my hands. You can also use a standing mixer to mix your dough or do it by hand. I do it by hand most of the time. If you make a wetter dough be sure to bake your cookies until they are very crispy. If you leave them with any kind of mushiness to them they will mold on you. They should be crisp and hard.
Onto the recipe.
Easy Homemade Dog Cookies
3C Wheat Flour
1/4 C or more if you choose Creamy Peanut Butter ( make sure your peanut butter does NOT have XYLITOL in it which is deadly to dogs)
1/4 C or more of 100% Pure Pumpkin (NOT Pumpkin Pie Filling)
Preheat oven to 375 F or 190.56 C
In a large Mixing bowl or Standing Mixer add all ingredients and mix into a dough. If dough is too dry add some water too it if you like.
Flour a cutting board and rolling pin
Roll out dough with a rolling pin to about a 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch thickness.
With a meat tenderizer or fork pop holes into the dough. (if you don't do this they will have bubbles of air in them)
Use cookie cutters of choice or simply cut into squares with a knife.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Line cookies on baking sheet distance doesn't matter
Bake for approximately 25 to 35 minutes depending on your oven or until cookies are crisp and hard.
After cooling store in air tight container or air tight bag.
Your dogs will love them! Mine do!
