HOW TO MAKE THIS HOMEMADE DOG TREATS RECIPE

PRO TIP: The best part of these is how well they freeze. Make a double batch of this homemade dog treats recipe so that you always have a supply of your own homemade dog treats on hand.

STEP ONE: Preheat your oven to 350°F.

STEP TWO: Add all ingredients to a large bowl.

STEP THREE: Blend on low in a stand mixer until well blended. The mixture should form a dough-like texture.

STEP FOUR: Once well mixed, put the dough between two sheets of parchment paper or on a floured surface and using a rolling pin, roll to approximately ¼ inch in thickness.

STEP FIVE: Use a cute cookie cutter or glass to cut out biscuits.

PRO TIP: We used a darling bone-shaped cookie cutter for our puppy treats. But you can use a traditional circle cookie cutter or a glass. If you have other cookie cutters in cute shapes, you could use those as well.

STEP SIX: Place in oven on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper and bake for approximately 17 minutes. Cool on a cooling rack before serving them to your best friend.

PRO TIP: For a more senior dog whose teeth are not what they used to be, you can break the cookies into smaller pieces or put them in their bowl with a little water to soften them up.

    I made this recipe yesterday for my 15-year-old dachshund and using a small round cutter, it made about 70 disks which we shared with our upstairs neighbor who has a pug. Both dogs are in love with these and they are so soft and easy to chew. Thank you…going to look at your pumpkin recipe now.
