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 baking tray to be cut into pieces 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.
