My Boston Terrier, Stella, turned eleven this week. Birthdays are a big deal in my house and having a doggie birthday is an equally good reason to celebrate. Obviously, dogs can’t have a normal birthday cake, but they can have and LOVE tasty home-made doggie biscuits and that’s exactly what I made for my loyal canine companion.
First of all, Martha came through – AGAIN! I went searching for dog-bone cookie cutters and the sweet little cashier at PetSmart said “I have just what you’re looking for” and brought me to a whole display of Martha Stewart doggie paraphernalia. I was able to purchase doggie bone cookie cutters in three convenient sizes…in case I ever get a bigger dog (Stella is only 15 lbs.). They came with a recipe, but I opted to use a recipe I found on Bullwinkle.com.
Peanut Butter Biscuits
2 cups whole wheat flour
1tbsp baking powder
1 cup of peanut butter
1 cup of milk
Preheat oven to 375°. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk with an electric mixer until smooth, then add to the dry ingredients and mix well. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead for about one minute.
Roll dough to ¼ inch thickness and use a cookie cutter to cut into shapes. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until lightly brown.
Cool on a rack.
Store in an air-tight (special birthday) container. Makes about 24 doggie biscuits.
I tried one…they’re arf-ly good.
Happy Birthday Stella!
