Midterms are finally over, so today I spent the day baking for Chandon and Piper, our newest addition to the family. So I baked some peanut butter cookies, that John, I, Chandon and Piper could all enjoy! They are great for using as rewards 🙂
The cookies are a little bland, but I spread peanut butter on one cookie, and sandwich it with another…John is addicted to them! Give them a try and let me know what you think. Oh and don’t forget to use an adorable bone-shaped cookie cutter.
Peanut Butter Bone Cookies – 100+ bones (depending on cutter size)
3 cups white whole-wheat flour (you can use white flour, but whole-wheat has the nutrition you and your pup can benefit from.)
1/2 cup yellow corn meal
2 tablespoons powdered milk
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 1/4 cups water
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
In the bowl of a mixer fitted with a dough hook, combine all the ingredients. Mix until dough comes together and stiffens, add a little more water if needed.
Divide the dough into 3 balls. Lightly flour the surface you will work on, and roll out each piece to about 1/4-inch thick. Cut using whatever shapes you like with a cookie cutter.
Place the treats on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 10 minutes. When the timer is up, turn off the heat, and leave the oven door partially open.
Once the treats are fully cooled, place in a airtight tin. I use a gold Ziploc container so that the treats are not visible to the dogs.
