There are a few dogs in our extended family, and I always like to give them something for Christmas too. That way, I don’t feel so bad when they’re begging for the meat off my plate… I’m definitely not going to share that!
This dog biscuit recipe is flavoured with peanut butter and they smell pretty good when they’re cooking. Last time I baked these at my Mother in law’s, Eddie (the dog) sat in front of the oven watching them cooking and he didn’t even know they were for him! If you dare to try one, do so at your own risk. They’re pretty crunchy and I don’t want you chipping a tooth.

*I haven’t tried it, but if you’re worried about giving your dog butter or margarine, you could substitute with olive oil.
