"Q&A ?

How long can you store these? Can you freeze them hopefully?"

"A good basic dog cookie. But baker beware: make sure you are using (all-natural peanut butter!) Many peanut butters contain a lot of sugar and/or Xylitol which are a no-no for pets."

"If your pet has a food allergy, such as wheat, any other type of flour can be used. I've made these many times and everyone loves them. A lot less expensive than store-bought, plus you know what goes into them."
