I bet you all thought I wasn’t doing any baking this Christmas. Well, it’s been a real busy month and I finally got some time to bake up some peppermint cookies just in time for Christmas! Today Bailie and I will show you our recipe for Peppermint Christmas Cookies for Dogs. We dogs love kisses, and peppermint freshens breath, making these the perfect holiday cookies! As a dog you can munch down one of these and feel much better hanging out under that mistletoe!
This recipe is real easy. Remember, my sisters and I don’t have any food issues, so we don’t worry much about what the ingredients are. The only important thing to remember is to use peppermint oil, NOT extract. Extract often contains alcohol which is bad for dogs. At the end of my post, I have a link to the recipe if you would like to download it for yourself.
Now that I have a little sister, I do like to use her as my assistant. She is getting pretty good at baking these days and does a good job helping me out. As you know, baking is a self rewarding dog behavior, and Bailie can hardly wait to give these cookies a taste.
Bailie can be such a tattle tale sometimes! I’m just making sure the cookie cutters are positioned correctly, but she has to yell for Mom because she thinks I’m going to eat the dough. Keep your furry pants on little sis!
Once your cookies are baked and have had time to cool off, it is time to eat them. Put the peppermint cookies on a festive plate and share with your fellow pups! These are to drool for! If you would like to have a look at, or download this recipe for your own dogs, click here.
