- Add water slowly to the mixture until dough forms.
- Roll dough out on a floured countertop to 1/4 –inch thickness. Cut with cookie cutters and place on cookie sheets. Pierce with fork to avoid air pockets in cookies.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly brown.
- Let cool on cooling racks for 2-3 hours. Place in air tight container or Ziploc bag in fridge or freezer until needed.
Before using peanut butter, always check the ingredient list to ensure xylitol isn’t included. Xylitol can be lethal when ingested by dogs. Buy a natural or organic peanut butter that contains only peanuts – the oil separates to the top of the jar, so you’ll have to stir it every time you use it.
