It's Peanut Butter Biscuit Time
2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 375*F.
In one bowl, combine flour and baking powder.
In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk (I used a whisk for quicker mixing).
Then combine all ingredients into one bowl and mix well (I used a wooden spoon to mix, the mix was getting stuck in the whisk).
Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. Then roll dough to a 1/4 inch thickness and use cookie cutters to cut out shapes (I definitely used Christmas cutters... what? I don't have any others!). The recipe says bake for 20 minutes but mine only took 15 so keep an eye on them and take them out when they start to slightly brown. Cool on a rack and then decorate!
(those bottom two burnt cookies were left in for the full 20 minutes...)
Ice Ice Baby
What are cookies without the icing, am I right? Here is a nice little way to make them pretty!
4 tbsp all purpose flour (per color)
3 tbsp cold water
food coloring (optional)
Mix water and flour, then add food coloring if you choose. Without coloring the icing is white. And bam, you're done. So simple.
(um, how cute is that little red elf!)
I only iced a few to make sure it didn't upset the tummies of my beasts. I thought they turned out so cute and were like the easiest thing ever to make. I do have to warn you though that they smell like peanut buttery goodness and look delicious. Try to remember that they're for dogs. When I make them again I am going to try some different things, especially with the decorating. Let me know if you try them out or have any other easy treat recipes! The best part though is watching the pups enjoy the end result:
Of course Wentworth's picture is blurry because he can't sit still like Boomer!
