Santa Paws is Coming to Town

Don't try to tell Snuffy and Angel that Santa Paws isn't real...They know better. Every year, their stockings are hung next to the tree and on Christmas morning they are full of treats. Who else could it be but Santa?
Well...let's just say I give Santa a little help. Not only do I like to bake all kinds of people goodies during the holidays, but I always bake up a batch of my famous Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits for the pups.

I have dog bone cookie cutters in lots of different sizes and sometimes I use holiday cookie cutters (bells, stars, trees). You can also just drop these by rounded balls onto the cookie sheet and press down with a fork, much like peanut butter cookies.
The recipe is easy and the dogs LOVE these biscuits. Here's the recipe:
Angel and Snuffy's Peanut Butter Biscuits
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 T. baking powder
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup skim milk
1 T. flax seed meal (optional, but it's good for their coats)
Mix the peanut butter, milk and baking powder together. Add flax seed and flour and mix thoroughly. Roll out and cut out with cookie cutters or roll in 1 inch balls, place on cookie sheet and crisscross with fork. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. When I am done baking all of the biscuits, I turn off the oven and put all of the biscuits back in the oven, close the door and let them dry out for several hours.
No dog has ever turned up their nose to these!

Have you ever tasted the dog cookies? My brother bakes cookies for his dogs and the first time he made them he said he ate one to see how it tasted. Love the hats on the bunnies.

Making my grocery list and checking it twice.....
Spoiled pets are the only kind I have too.
P.s. I won't tell Santa where all of his hats are.
