What's a PBTW, you ask? A Peanut Butter Tail-Wagger, of course! My sisters both have dogs. I and two of our kids are allergic to animal dander so our kids haven't had the pleasure of ever having a dog as a pet. However, since my one sister lives nearby, we like to occasionally get treats for her dog. Since I love to bake, I decided to try my hand at making some dog treats.  This is a quick and an easy recipe. Use different shaped cookie cutters for holiday giving (not that the canine recipient will care about the looks so much as getting the treat in their mouth!)


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


Preheat oven to 375°F. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder. Add the peanut butter and milk mixing until well blended. The mixture should be very stiff but moist. Turn out dough onto counter and roll out to 1/4" thickness. Cut into shapes using cookie cutters. Alternatively you can scoop balls of dough onto cookie sheet and use a fork to press down into flat circles leaving a hashmark imprint like people peanut butter cookies. (Just be sure to label them properly in your kitchen!) Place 1" apart on cookie sheets and bake for 20 minutes or until lightly brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
