I started making these biscuits for my mums dog as my mum couldn't afford to buy treats. I would make a bag for her and my son who also has a dog. They love them. I now own a dog and she loves them too. This is a great recipe.

I’ve been making these for a long time now. My dog, Lola, knows by the smell when I’m baking for her and is in the kitchen the whole time! To make it easier, I use a pizza cutter and make 1x3” long strips instead of the bone shape. It is much faster with less rolling and these strips fit very nicely into Lola’s Kong. I use all natural peanut butter, and if I remember, get it freshly ground at the grocery store. I also buy the real Ceylon cinnamon to avoid any coumarin overdose if I give her too many treats.

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.

I made these for my friends who have dogs and they were a great success. I included a copy of the recipe with the biscuits for them to make their own.
