{09jan2010: recipe}

Back when we first decided to keep Darwin our coworkers threw us a puppy shower and one of the gifts we received was a Three Dog Bakery Cookbook.
For Christmas I decided to make some cookies for Darwin's friends and used one of the recipes from this cookbook. Remi's mom asked for the recipe we used so I thought I'd share it with all our blogging friends. It was a super quick and easy recipe and I like the fact that I knew what Darwin and her friends were snacking on.

Simple Simon's Birthday Bones
adapted from Three Dog Bakery Cookbook
makes 30 large bones

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup natural peanut butter
1 cup skim milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk. Add wet mixture to dry, and mix well.
Turn out dough on a lightly floured surface and knead.  Roll out to 1/4 inch thick and cut shapes.
Place on parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until lightly brown. Cool on rack then store in an airtight container.

It's a great cookbook with lots of recipes for cookies and cakes and "real" food like meat loaf and lasagna.  Darwin's 1 year birthday is coming up next month and I'll probably make cupcakes for her and her friends with a recipe from this book.


  1. Excellent!! thanks! Very healthy. I will make some for Remi while he's recuperating from his 'procedure'.

  2. Thank you for sharing! If you make any extra, Jack would like to try them :)

  3. Cool...I didn't get around to making any treats this year...last year one of Nala's friends came over and his human and we made dog cookies and Nala and Hank got to be the taste testers...it was fun!

  4. You mentioned quick and easy. I'm taking this recipe to my momma. She's real busy but if she knows it won't take long, maybe, just maybe...Got a b-day coming up, huh? Cool, you'll get presents :)

  5. I love cookies, maybe I can convince Momma to make these.

  6. I hope I can get my mom to make these cookies. We were sad to see the Three Dog Bakery in downtown Seattle close. Mom and Dad usually gave us some fancy treats from there for Christmas.
