Homemade Dog Biscuits

I like having the girls in the kitchen with me cooking when I'm not in a hurry trying to get dinner on the table. Making dog biscuits is just like making cookies (actually these are completely edible for humans.) But making them for your dog, the dog gets to eat them instead of having a ton of cookies for your kids to eat (or you!) And believe me, the thought of making a special treat for their puppy and giving it to him was enough of a treat for the girls they weren't even thinking of cookies for themselves! For more pictures of the girls making the cookies check out Ditt & Dott.

Homemade Doggie Treat Biscuits

1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
lemon zest from 1 lemon
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp coconut oil (or olive oil)
1/4 to 1/2 cup water

Mix flour, brown sugar, and lemon zest together in a large bowl. If you are using coconut oil, melt it in a small bowl. Pour into the flour. Then melt the peanut butter in that small bowl. The oil will help the peanut butter slide right out into the flour bowl. Add vanilla and 1/4 cup of the water. Stir with a wooden spoon. Add a bit more water if needed until a ball of dough forms. Roll out and cut into cookie shapes. Bake at 375 for 12 minutes.
