Treats for the Pup

In all the hustle and bustle of holiday baking be sure to remember your favorite furry friends. This recipe is from the Three Dog Bakery Cookbook and my hound, who is on an animal protein free diet, loves these (note: he's licking his lips in the pic below).

Simple Simon's Birthday Bones
2 C whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 C natural peanut butter
1 C skim milk (I used soy milk)

Preheat oven 375 degrees.  In a bowl combine flour and baking powder.  In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk. Add wet mixture to dry and mix well. Turn out dough on lightly floured surface and knead. Roll out to 1/4 inch thick and cut out shapes. Place on a greased or non stick baking sheet and bake 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a rack and store in an airtight container

Makes 30 large bones.
