Simple Simon's Birthday Bones

These easy-to-make pet treats are a favorite of my crew and make a great present for the pet birthday party or a unique hostess gift for the animal lover.

To make these tasty treats, you will need:
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter*
  • 1 cup skim milk

*Note: Most brands of natural peanut butter do not contain sugar, which is an ingredient that is not recommended for canine diets.

Preheat the 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 a 1/4-inch thick and cut in shapes.

Place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until lightly brown. Cool on a rack and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Makes 24-30 treats.
