Pooches: On Making Dog Cookie (Monsters!)

Back when we were being held hostage by the Polar Vortex, we started a tradition of baking cookies. We would spend one day making the dough and rolling it into balls to freeze. Then each night we would bake just a few cookies at a time.
Mainly we needed to keep the oven going because it was just that cold.
But it also started a bit of a tradition among the pups where they became Cookie Monsters.
For some reason, Miss M is obsessed with the smell of cinnamon. When we were baking our own Snickerdoodles she would raise her judgmental resting face knowing when they were finished cooking.
While Mr. B tried to be a bit more covert:
E decided it was only fair to start baking the pups some cookies along with our cookies.
We made a variation of this recipe, but we used almond flour and water instead of milk.
Then we made the cookies into ninja-bread men (thanks to these cookie cutters!)
We always make 3 cookies, and if we give them each one somehow Miss M will still stare and complain knowing that there is one cookie left.

Anyone else have any good dog cookie recipes?

Otto loves his homemade biscuits! Here's the recipe.

Peanut Butter Biscuits (adapted just a bit from a Mia’s Kitchen recipe)


½ cups water (add more water later if required)
1/4 cup oil
2 eggs
3 tablespoons peanut butter
1/4 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
½ cup cornmeal
½ cup oats


Preheat oven to 400 F.
Blend wet ingredients together.
Whisk dry ingredients together and mix into wet mixture to form a ball of dough.
Roll out and shape.
Put onto a non-stick or lightly greased cookie tray.
Bake for 20 minutes. Turn off oven and allow the biscuits to cool in oven until crisp and hard.
Store in airtight container.

This is such a neat idea to cheer up those cold days, or any day! My family has made peanut butter dog cookies, shaped liked bones, hearts and stars. They make cute Christmas gifts, too.
