Use cookie cutters for added fun!

>>Bake for 10 – 15 minutes or until golden. Baking time will vary depending on the size of treats.
>>Cool for at least 30 minutes. To frost, cut hole in side of plastic bag and decorate as you wish.

  1. It’s hard to find frosting for dog biscuits, I just got some meringue powder so maybe I can use that to thicken things a bit when I do want to frost. I will have to try this recipe out, but my dogs are SO not picky so they are a difficult audience to get true feedback from.

    • Using meringue powder to thicken the frosting sounds like a great idea! I was experimenting and found that it’s much easier to make the frosting first and put it in the refrigerator to harden up before putting on treats. It helped a lot!
      We have one picky eater among the three so when Harley doesn’t like it, I know something is a bit “off”. He loves these however 🙂

  2. Have never made homemade treats, but have been thinking about giving it a try because I want healthier treats for my dogs then the store provides. I think this is a good one to try.

  3. I learned something new today – dogs like bananas.

  4. Those not only look yummy, they are fancy too.

  5. These look yummy. C’mon person, hurry up and make me some.

  6. Made these less the icing(and parsley as I was out) for the new puppy just wanting a healthy happy dog and a special thing for Christmas time.

    Hubby ended up eating some of my mini treats ( abou the size f a quarter) thinking o was making them for us. He even said their good cookies but need to be bigger till I told him who they were actually for. LMAO.

    These would all be good human treats too for kids with wheat allergies.
