Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits


It's no surprise that Bill & I have the most spoiled dog on the planet. Princess truly lives up to her name as often as she can and is so unbelievably spoiled, sometimes even I can't believe it.

The fall baking bug has bitten me and since I made Chocolate Chip Muffins last night, I don't want to bake any more for Bill & I or we'll be 500 lbs by Christmas.

So, what's my solution? Bake for the dog!

I've made some pumpkin treats for her before, but they actually molded quite quickly, and I had to toss them. I made a large batch and gave them as gifts, so I had to ask my recipients to open them and check them for mold before feeding them to their pooches! Mortifying.

I've made a Beef & Cheddar Biscuit recipe a few times and it is a definite keeper. The process is simple and I finally found a few cute dog bone shaped cookie cutters at Sur Le Table, similar to the ones below:

This time I've decided to change it up and try a new recipe, one that seems even simpler than the Beef & Cheddar Biscuits. It only has four ingredients!

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Combine the flour and baking powder in a bowl.
  3. Combine the peanut butter and milk in another bowl, then add to the dry ingredients. Mix well, then knead into a firm dough with your hands.
  4. Roll out to 1/4″ thick and use a dog bone cookie cutter to cut into cute shapes (or just use a knife to cut into small squares).
  5. Place on a cookie sheet about 1/2″ apart (close is OK – they won’t rise)
  6. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes or until thoroughly dried.
I can't wait to make them for Princess! She will do basically anything for peanut butter, so I have a feeling these will be a BIG hit! You can tell from these she feels so deprived already because I won't give her MY dinner:

Clearly, I'm the meanest Mommy ever.

How do you spoil your pets?

  1. I really have to try making these for my dog! She LOVES peanut butter--we give it to her in a toy every once in a while and she spends an hour or so trying to lick it all up. She would definitely love these. Thanks for sharing!
