Kitchen Experiments: Faith's Birthday Treats

First off Happy Birthday to the sweetest most amazing dog a girl could ask for!! Faith, our pug,  is 11 years old today, so in honor of her birthday I am doing a recipe for home-made dog treats from Sweet Paul Magazine.  She is just like her momma and is obsessed with anything that involves peanut butter

Peanut Snack Sandwiches

2 Tablespoons Canola Oil
1/2 cup Peanut Butter (all natural or organic) - I prefer Smuckers Natural Creamy
1 cup water
1 1/2 cup White Flour
1 1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flower
crushed Peanuts

1. In a large bowl or mixer combine Oil, Peanut Butter and Water

2. Add both types of flour to mix and work dough together

3. wrap mixed dough in plastic wrap and place in the regrigerator for at least 30 minutes

4. Knead dough into a firm ball and roll into 1/4 thickness

5. Preheat Oven to 350

6. Use a cookie cutter or small glass ( I used a shot glass) and cut out small circles

7. Place cut out circles on cookie sheet (can cover in parchment if you prefer)

8. Put a handful of peanuts in a food processor and grind to a fine consistency

9. sprinkly peanuts over circles, press softly into dough

10. bake for 10-12 minutes

11. Cool on wire rack

12. Store in an container with a tight lid.

13. When you are ready to serve them to your pup put some peanut butter in between two cookies and serve, believe it won't last long

Bowie waiting patiently...of course the Birthday girl will share

At last, taste test!!!

*The best part you can try them too, I sure did :)
