We have a Jack Russell-Pug-Sheltie-Border Collie cross named Pippi. (As we discovered upon moving to Quebec, this name does not translate and basically means to pee. This has led to many awkward conversations at the dog park). What fun is it to have a pet if you don’t spoil them silly? In that vein, we thought maybe we should make our own Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits!
“Did you say you were going to make me Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits?”
Yes Pippi, yes we are! For everyone who wants to try this themselves, here’s what you’ll need:
- 1/2 cup skim milk
- 1/2 cup natural, unsweetened peanut butter
- 1 cup flour (whole wheat or white flour works)
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
Pour the milk into a mixing bowl or food processor
Add the peanut butter. Natural peanut butter is much more liquid and easy to pour.
Mix this together
Add the flour and the baking powder
Mix it all together
Pour the dough out in a ball on a floured surface
Knead for a couple of minutes
Roll out the dough to about a 1/4 inch thickness
Now use cookie cutters to cut the dough into shapes!
Place the cut out biscuits on a well greased cookie sheet
“I eat them now?”
Not yet Pippi … place in preheated oven and 375F (190C) for 20 minutes or until starting to brown
Take out of the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack
Now you can have one Pippi!
Sit! Now roll over …
Here you go! How is it?
“Can’t talk … eating”
“OM NOM NOM!”
So there you have it, all you need to spoil your dog with Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits!
Bon Apetit, petit chien!
