Doggie Treats

I needed some dog biscuits for a gift. (more on that later).
Have you ever made your own dog biscuits? I suppose not. It's not the kind of thing most people care to spend their time on.....

None of the grandkids have pets (I'm told hamsters don't count) but both sets of GKs have other Grandmas with dogs. I invited some of the GKs over to help me and to make some treats for their doggie friends at other Grandmas houses.

This is a great thing to do with kids, but make sure everyone wears an apron and if you have any kind of plastic tablecloth, use it to cover the work area. This is a very flour-y project!

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup beef broth
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. garlic powder

Mix all until well blended. Turn dough out on well floured surface and knead until smooth. Roll out to 1/4 in. thickness and cut with dog bone and cat shaped cookie cutters. Bake at 350* for 25-30 minutes until browned and crispy.

Mix all ingredients together

Roll out dough and cut with dog bone and cat shaped cookie cutter.

Bake at 350* 25-30 minutes until browned and crispy.

When completely cool, pack in zip lock bags for traveling to other Grandmas houses or in plastic jar tied with cute dog & cat printed ribbon for a gift.

Two-fold mission accomplished! Fun project for the GKs and a gift ready for me for this weekend.......
