Peanut Butter Cookies

When can I eat them?

Ah the joys of cookies in the afternoon, not for me but Lincoln! I have made my fair share of snikerpoodles and every time my dogs go out of their mind excited. If you have pets and you enjoy baking you should definitely do a google search and try out your hand at being a total “Betty Barker”

All you need for cookies

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

This recipe read as super simple and I liked that. It also included ingredients I was happy to serve the pups (whole wheat flour, flax seed, peanut butter) with few what I call “extras” from my people pantry (i.e. baking soda, sugar etc.). It didn’t take all too long and since the ingredients are relatively cheap I can now make oodles of gourmet looking dog biscuits that ensure wags and kisses every time.

Be warned it takes some muscle

 

Make sure it's Parchment, otherwise you'll be sending smoke signals like I did by accident :(

 

Upon baking I was very tempted to go in search of clever doggy friendly frosting but then in lue of comments about their shelf life decided against it. I have also opted to keep them in the fridge because in the past I have had the gross realization that food without preservatives will inevitably mold. I also made a slight addition to the recipe and added some honey, which much to my delight didn’t seem to hurt the recipe at all. In fact the dough was so spongy and dry the addition may have actually helped out a bit. I also contemplated the substitution of low sodium chicken stock/broth for water but that lead me down a whole-nother road of subbing the peanut butter for pureed pumpkin to make a more Thanksgiving-y sort of treat…so instead the idea was catalogued for future trials. Either way both Lincoln and Audrey were absolutely delighted to be taste testers. The only real trouble I had was picking which pictures to post, how many pictures of your adorable babies is excessive?

Mmmmm I'm sorry no pictures now, I have cookies

 

Can I lick the spoon? Please ...
