If your pets are anything like mine, they are spoiled during the holidays! Santa Paws was especially generous to Jack and Lily this year with full stockings and lots of presents under the tree. If you’re looking for a special gift for your furry friends, why not try making them homemade treats? Below is a super simple recipe to try:
Ingredients: 1 c flour; I used rice flour because I try to avoid wheat if possible 1 ½ tsp baking powder ½ cup unsalted peanut butter; I only had Jif on hand so I made the indulgent version of these treats ½ c hot water Fun shaped cookie cutters (optional)
Step 2: Mix dry ingredients (flour and baking powder)
Step 3: Mix wet ingredients (water and peanut butter.) Then add the dry ingredients, combining until smooth. My dough turned out wet, so I added more flour. You can also add more water if the dough is too dry. This is where Lily picked up I might be making something for her!
Step 4: Roll your dough out on to a flat surface until ¼ in. thick and use cookie cutters to cut in to shapes. Place the cookies on a baking sheet.
Step 5: Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool. Then enjoy!
In the past I made little bags of these for coworkers and they were a big hit! Jack, Lily and I wish you a happy holidays and a great 2015 for you and your pets!
