I never met a dog who didn't love peanut butter! Give your friend a special treat for the holidays...just don't overdo it!

Makes about 60

1 cup peanut butter
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 large egg
3/4 cup molasses (can substitute honey)

Pre-heat oven to 325F. Mix well. The batter will be stiff. Form into desired shape OR use cookie cutters to make desired shape. Bake until dry (the actual time will vary with the size and thickness). This makes 5 dozen medium sized bone shaped biscuits. Actual number will vary with size and shape.

Would make this again.
Excellent, but you gotta get messy!
I made 1/2 recipe for my two small dogs (chihuahua and Jack Russell), reduced flour and increased egg (1 1/4 c whole wheat and 1 egg for 1/2 batch).

Mix peanut butter, honey and egg, then stir and mash in 1/2 c flour at a time, eventually (messy part) hand kneading until dough is no longer crumbly. It needs to be kneaded. :)

Roll 1/4 of 1/2 batch into log 1 1/4 in thick, then slice each log into 12 pieces (I didn't have a cookie cutter and the dogs really don't care what they look like). Bake at 325 for 15 min. Biscuits will still be soft, but will firm up and dry as they cool. Yield 4 doz small biscuits.

Little crumbly when eaten, but the puppies clean up ALL the crumbs! Thanks for sharing this easy recipe!

Would make this again.
I would and AM making these again! I didn't have an issue with crumbly batter...I just made sure I mixed it extremely well. I also mushed the dough in the bowl with my hands--the heat from my hands helped the dough mold together. I used a teddy bear cookie cutter, add some sprinkles, & baked them till done! They were a hit not only with my dogs, but all the dogs I pet sit.

PS: flour only makes skin itch if a dog has an allergy to wheat..not all dogs do :) If your dog does, consider experimenting with rye flour or other options.

Would not make this again.
flour is bad for your dogs skin. it makes them itch.

so if your dog has an itching problem don't make this for them. no bread/flour for dogs!
