things are going to the dogs around here...

making dog treats for
 jesse & lucy 
has been on my list
for several days


they ran out
and they get a little fussy
when their treat jar is empty

this is a super easy recipe with only a few ingredients
and the cost is much less than the junk they
sell in the store

here goes...

1 tablespoon of baking powder
1 cup of peanut butter
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup dried milk prepared
(1/3 cup dried milk to one cup water)

throw everything in your electric mixer
and mix until a dough forms
flour a board and roll the dough
to about 1/4"

the recipe says to cut them out with cookie cutters
jesse & lucy do not care what shape they are 
as long as they get a treat
i roll the dough into a rectangle and cut the 
dough into about 3/4" squares
(this recipe yields about 4 cups)
bake in a 350 degree oven
for 20 minutes or until 
lightly browned and hard

store in your favorite treat jar
and make your furry friends happy

lucy & jesse

guess who is the boss?

Thank you for the recipe. I made these and my dogs loved them. However, I put them in a plastic container and even though I left the lid ajar so that they would not be too moist, they turned moldy on me. Have you ever had this happen? I thought maybe if I make them again I will freeze most and take them out as I need them.
