Gingerbread cookies for dogs? It’s the holiday season and every dog deserves some homemade yummy cookies! Why not follow along with me here in my kitchen as I show you how easy these cookies are to make?
I do have one secret ingredient in my gingerbread cookies for dogs, the molasses! Who wouldn’t want to put some liquid wabbit in their cookies? Mom insists it is only a name, but I know there has to be wabbit in this magical Brer Rabbit molasses!
These yummy cookies only have six ingredients, so they are real simple. First, I mix the dry ingredients together, then add the liquids and mix until I have a nice dough. Don’t worry if any paw fur gets into the bowl, it only adds a bit of extra flavor.
Rolling out the dough is the tough part. I usually end up with half the flour on the floor! I need to get it all flat and about 1/4 inch thick.
Next I use some of my favorite, festive holiday cookie cutters to cut out the cookies. This recipe makes a good two dozen average sized cookies. They don’t get bigger when they bake, so I can place them close together on my cookie sheet.
Oh boy! Look at these beauties! They are all ready to go in the oven. I can hardly keep my paws of of them!
The oven appears to be pre-heated so I can stick the cookies into the oven to bake. The house will smell so nice too! Mom is having a hard time not trying these because she says they smell just like the gingerbread cookies for people.
After baking, the cookies need to cool off. I’m sorry, but I really cannot resist. These are afterall, gingerbread cookies for dogs and I am a dog. I’m going to try and sneak a warm one real quick!
Show some holiday spirit and share these cookies with your friends by tweeting my recipe!
