Lindsey's homemade peanut butter dog biscuits

Remember the awesome homemade dog cookies that Lindsey sent Max and Brewster for the Christmas pet gift exchange?

A couple weeks ago, she very kindly shared the recipe in the pet exchange post's comments and also emailed me photos she took while making the biscuits and adorable photos of Jasper and Precious with their Christmas gifts.  I thought it'd be nice to post the recipe and photos for everyone to enjoy today.

Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits

 Prep Time:
15 Min
Cook Time:20 Min
Ready In:35 Min


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon aluminum-free baking powder
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1 cup skim milk


1.     Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets. Stir together the flour and baking powder; set aside.
2.     In a medium bowl, mix together the peanut butter and milk. Stir in the flour mixture until well blended. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness and cut into shapes using cookie cutters. Place onto the prepared cookie sheets.  (They don’t really expand in size, so you can place them close together - about ½” apart.)
3.     Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly brown. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks. 

Note from Lindsey: I used different shape cookie cutters I found to make most of them, and then I had a letter brander for meat when we grill, so I used the letters from that to personalize the heart dog biscuits.

UPDATE 2/7/2011: I forgot to mention before...  There aren't any preservatives in the recipe so I'd plan to use up the biscuits in the same amount of time that you'd eat human cookies.  I store them in the freezer to extend the biscuits' shelf life by a couple weeks.  Bru and Max like them straight from the freezer.  -Alison

 Jasper and Precious are such cutie pies!  I'm so happy they're enjoying their gifts.

Lindsey, thanks so much for sharing your recipe and all these photos!  I can't wait to make a batch for Max, Bru, and all their doggy buddies.  :)

Cute cookies. One of my co-workers has some dog cookies recipes she was going to give me (to give to others as I am a freak who does not bake). I'll have to send them your way so you can send them Lindsay's way.
