    We don’t have all purpose flour in the UK, self raising flour makes them a bit puffy, should I use plain flour instead?

    These treats are Cooper approved! He laid beside me the whole time I was making them like he knew they were for him. They are simple to make. They stayed fresh in a Ziploc bag. I like these because I know what is in the treats I'm giving him. I plan on making another batch this weekend as he is having a doggy friend visit.

    My poodle is picky so I was prepared not to be offended when she didn't want one... However much to my surprised she absolutely went crazy for these! She jumped up and down and was just loving them and kept begging for more! It was so cute!! I did have to add quite a bit more milk because the dough seemed dry. And I didn't kneed or roll it out, I just made like drop cookies. But I plan on making these for gifts because they are so fun! Thanks for the great recipe.

    Made this for 3 dogs for Christmas gifts (3 different households). Got feed back that they LOVED them. My 4 year old grandson helped me. I pinched up pieces of Beggin Strips and let him put two little pieces on each cookie. Made them alittle more yummy. Made some again today OMG the house smelled so good. My little dog couldn't wait to get one. I decorated Icing plastic tubs with scrap book paper/wrapping paper Christmas and with Heart stickers today.
