Dogs Love Christmas Too

So, my parents have a lovely dog.  Her name is Cinnamon and she is a Golden Retriever.  And she is also adorable and silly and she loves to be wherever we are.  So normally, she would also love Christmas!  Duh.  Isn’t she cute!?

What a silly pup!

Anywho, I made the mistake of making these awesome pup treats for her one Christmas and now it’s a requirement for me to make them for her every year!  It’s not like I can say “no” to that face!

Peanut Butter Pup Treats
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
3 tablespoons peanut butter (Cinn prefers Jif)
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup oats (quick oats are fine)

Blend the wet ingredients in a large bowl.  You can just use a wisk.  No need to get out the Kitchenaid.  Combine the dry ingredients in a smaller bowl.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until a wet dough forms.  Roll out and cut into pup shapes – bones, fire hydrants, paw prints!  Place on a non-stick or lightly greased cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes.  Let them cool and give them to your pup!  Cinn tested, Cinn approved!
