Tasty Puppy Treats

Hello again everyone! I'm back with a short happy Friday afternoon post for all of you to show you these delicious doggie biscuits I made for Nash! He likes the Milkbones, but doesn't seem to LOVE them, so I'm hoping that these peanut butter treats do the trick.

Sniffing out the new treat...
I found the recipe from Paula Deen and it's called Bodeen's Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits. They look delicious and they've made our entire apartment smell like peanut butter! (Josh says it smells terrible, but I don't mind it, although the peanut butter smell has become a little bit stuffy. Oh well.)

The best part about these? They were super easy to make! First up, the ingredients:

3/4 cup of milk
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 egg
1 cup peanut butter
2 1/4 to 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

After the first 2 cups of flour, I took the dough out of the bowl and mixed the remaining bit with my hands. Then I lay it out on the counter, dusted it with more flour, and rolled it out to about a 1/4" thickness. Nash is a small dog, so I just used the top to one of my empty spice containers awaiting a refill to cut a small circle for each one in the dough. About half of one of these will be perfect for Nash, but I didn't have anything smaller to use as a biscuit cutter.

Then, I lay them out on parchment paper and cooked them in the oven at 325 for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, I took them out, turned each biscuit over, and put them back in the oven for 15 more minutes. 

After that, I took them out of the oven, let them cool, and gave one to my official taste tester! And the result? He LOVES them! 

Sleepy treat nibbles

Isn't he just the cutest? He's a little sleepy here - I urged him awake with the peanut butter aroma. These were so easy to make and Paula Deen says they can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months! I plan on making a huge batch of these and storing them for later use. And it feels good to know that I made these and I know only the best ingredients went into making them. But enough about the biscuits, you really just want to see another picture of Nash, right?

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! See you next week for some new DIY projects, the release of a special November challenge, and the celebration of Josh's birthday!
