Creative Crafting - Homemade Dog Biscuits

Homemade Dog Biscuits           
         Years back when there was the major dog food companies recalled their dog food and snacks my family, like many others in the country, did not feel safe letting their four legged family members eat just any old dog treat out there.

We found this recipe in a neighborhood cook book and made them for our dogs. Yes, it is much easier to go buy dog biscuits at the store, but knowing that your pet is getting a healthy treat is just as important as your child having one!

Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits
yield: 36 medium sized biscuits 1 cup Low-fat Peanut Butter
1 cup Nonfat Milk
1 tsp Fish Oil, optional but it promotes healthy skin and fur 2 1/2 cups Whole Wheat
1 TBS Baking Powder
Bone Shaped Cookie Cutters, from Martha Stewart                

preheat oven to 350 degrees

1. In a large bowl add the peanut butter. Slowly add the milk while whisking simultaneously. Whisk until combined and smooth. Add fish oil if using.

2. In a separate bowl combine the whole wheat flour and baking powder. Pour the peanut butter mixture on top and use a large spoon to combine.

3. Divide dough into 2 portions. Flour a work surface and rolling pin, and roll to a 1/4 inch thickness. Use a cookie cutter to cut into shapes (or cut into small squares).

4. Cover two baking sheets with parchment and place the cookies on top. Cookies can be close as they should not spread.

5. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until hard and crisp. Let cool before giving to your pet.
