My dog’s best buddy is visiting, so doggie brunch is on the menu. We’ve already done waffles (yes, for dogs … check it out), so high tea canape-style dog bones it is.
Peanut Butter Dog Bone Brunch Bites were easy to make and cut into bone shapes … but for the special day, I took it one step further and stack them like sandwiches with a smear of peanut butter in the middle (cool!) and added an egg wash, which frankly, wasn’t that impressive.
Peanut Butter Dog Bone Brunch Bites
¾ cup milk
1 cup peanut butter
2 ½ cup whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking soda
Preheat oven to 325 F.
Whisk the milk, one egg and peanut butter together and add the baking soda. That part’s easy.
Then roll the dough into a big ball. Flour a surface, roll out the dough and cut it with a bone-shaped cookie cutter. I made these thicker than usual (more than ¼ inch) and baked them a little softer.
Wisk one egg with some water. Using a pastry brush, ‘wash’ egg over each biscuit.
Bake for 10-15 minutes.
After cooling, sandwich two bones together with peanut butter and serve immediately … preferably outside, on the back deck with your best buddy after a run in the park.
(To make them extra pretty, mix some corn starch with enough water to make it drizzle-able and food colouring. Then using a spoon, drizzle over bone-shaped treats).
