The delicate, crumbly texture of this decadent shortbread is a decided departure from the same-old-same-old of stale and crunchy store-bought treats. We’ve replaced all the butter and sugar with dog-friendly peanut butter. You can cut these out into simple shapes, or simply press into a sheet pan to be cut into bars later.Print
Peanut Butter Shortbread Cookies for Dogs
- 2 cups natural peanut butter (check ingredients for xylitol, a dangerous ingredient)
- 1/2 cup milk (coconut or soy milk is fine for dogs with a dairy issue)
- 2 cups AP flour (you can substitute part for oat flour or whole wheat flour)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Line two baking trays with parchment paper
Cream the peanut butter for a few minutes until fluffy and lightens in color and texture
Add the milk and stir to combine
Gradually add the flour in until mixed
Turn out onto a floured surface to roll out
Roll out half the dough and cut out using a simple shaped cookie cutter as the dough may be a little too crumbly for a fancy shape.
Bake for 20 minutes or until just starting to turn golden around on the bottom and the edges
Leave to cool completely on the baking sheets.
Bea thinks peanut butter is man’s greatest invention so 4 paws up.
