Preparing these treats is easy and fun, so get the family or kids involved for a special bonding experience. Plus, the peanut butter and milk will provide your pup with a sweet snack full of protein and healthy fats.
Preheat oven to between 350 to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (350 for lower elevations or 375 for higher). Combine flour and baking powder in a bowl. In a second bowl, the mix peanut butter and milk together. Then, add the dry and wet ingredients together and mix well so that it makes dough. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead until it has a smooth texture. Roll out the dough using a rolling pin to 1/4 inch thickness and use cookie cutters to cut out your favorite shapes. Bake for 20 minutes on a lightly greased baking sheet until they start turning lightly brown. Cool on a rack, then store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
Note: Why does the heat vary? Elevation affects baking heat. If you are located under 2,500 feet about sea level, 350F may be enough. If you are located over 2,500, try 375F. Our friends in Colorado (5,280 feet high) use 375F to make treats.
