Between all of the sewing yesterday, I managed to get a little baking accomplished. For all of my puppy pals out there, here is an easy, healthy recipe for you to enjoy. (I've even sampled them......if they had sugar in them, they'd be "people friendly.") There are tons of great cookie cutters available too. Obvious shapes like dog bones, but also, specific breeds, squirrels, mice, cats, whatever might trip your dog's trigger. Have fun and be a hero to your best friend. After all, their priceless gift of unconditional love is certainly worth a few treats!

Peanut Butter Dog Treats


2 cups whole-wheat flour

1 tbsp baking powder

1 cup peanut butter

1 cup skim milk

DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk. Add wet mixture to dry, and mix well.

Turn out dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll out to 1/4-inch thickness and cut out shapes. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake 20 minutes or until lightly brown. Cool on a rack and store in an airtight container.

Makes about 20-30 dog biscuits. (This depends on your cutters....I made about 60 with various sized shapes.)
