Christmas dog biscuit recipes

Jack hopes to bribe santa paws with some of his favorite cookies.
Re-use of images is fine, but those who do should link back to this post.

Don’t forget to pamper your pet this holiday season! Here are a couple of my dogs’ favorite biscuit recipes which are really simple to make. You can even mix the dough in a food processor with a dough hook to speed up the process. Our dogs give us so much love throughout the year, here’s a really simple way to love them back by baking something special for them!

Many dog cookie recipes call for whole wheat flour, but I prefer to use white wheat, since it is still healthy but tastes a lot less bitter. I think my dogs definitely prefer it! If you’d like to use whole wheat flour instead, just substitute equal portions in place of the white wheat.

Peanut Butter Apple Bones

  • 2 medium apples, cored and shredded
  • 1/4 C natural peanut butter
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 1/3 C white wheat flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine shredded apples, peanut butter, and beaten egg. Slowly add enough flour to make a stiff dough.

Roll out dough to about 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick, cut with preferred cookie cutter shape. Place on cookie sheet in oven and bake for 30 minutes. Flip each cookie over and cook for another 30 minutes.

If a more crunchy cookie is desired, leave to cool in cracked oven overnight.

Pumpkin Cookies

  • 1 C canned pumpkin (unsweetened, unseasoned)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 C white wheat flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine pumpkin, vanilla, and beaten egg. Slowly add enough flour to make a stiff dough.

Roll out dough to about 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick, cut with preferred cookie cutter shape. Place on cookie sheet in oven and bake for 30 minutes. Flip each cookie over and cook for another 30 minutes.

If a more crunchy cookie is desired, leave to cool in cracked oven overnight.
