Dogs Need Treats Too!

Some of you may know that I am the owner of two German Shorthair Pointers named Oskar and Steve:

this is an older picture of the guys. stevah was just home a few weeks at this point. 

A few years ago Geoff and I started making peanut butter treats for the guys. They are perfect for the morning walks and very very inexpensive to make. We go through a lot of cookies at our house so being able to whip up a few batches of these treats is always a benefit. Plus they give Dudes (Oskar) the energy needed to deal with his little brother. This recipe comes from a different blog I use to run from 2009. Feel free to use it for your four legged friends. They will definitely love them.

Dude Snacks
2 cups flour
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 375'F. In a bowl, combine flour, brown sugar and baking powder. In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk, then add to dry ingredients and mix well. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness and use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes. Bake for 20 minutes on a greased baking sheet until lightly brown. Cool on a rack, then store in an airtight container. Based on doggy consumption these can last about 2 weeks! Just enough time to make more!!
