Our Bodacious Biscuit Love Peanut Butter Dog Treat Recipe

Last month, the big question was, Are We Going To Share Our Peanut Butter Biscuit Recipe? This recipe is the one we have stuck with for almost 3 years. It's the recipe we pay $80 a year to keep registered with the Department of Agriculture and in accordance with the General Statutes of Connecticut. It's the only flavor we offer at our display locations. I thought about it a lot. And, after thinking about it a little more, I thought, "Yes." So, here it is.

In my KitchenAid Mixer, I throw in 1 cup of Skippy Natural Peanut Butter, 2 1/4 cup of flour, 1 1/4 - 1 1/12 cups of hot water and 3 teaspoons of baking powder.

If you don't have a KitchenAid Mixer, that's okay. Use a hand mixer or your hands.

Once mixed, the dough should be slightly sticky. Not too sticky. Not too dry. I flour the kitchen counter. Knead the dough a bit. Add a little more flour. You should be able to roll the dough without it sticking. Sprinkle flour as needed.

I roll the dough to the thickness of what you would for a pie crust. You can roll a little thicker if you'd like. Once rolled, use any cookie cutter you want. This dough can be rolled and cut as many times as needed.

The dough will tighten up after the 2nd roll. I suggest rolling a little bit thinner and waiting a few minutes before cutting at this time.

The perfect baking time for us is 22 minutes at 350 degrees. Keep in mind that varies depending on the oven you have. Ours is a little older.

When the biscuits are perfectly baked, they'll be a little soft and brown on the bottom. You will not get a hard biscuit just by baking them in the oven.

If you do attempt to get a hard biscuit by baking only, you'll end up overcooking them. That's not good.

After the biscuits have cooled, let them sit on plates, or metal cooking trays, for about 24-48 hours in a temperature controlled area of your home. Cool and dry.

During this period, they'll harden up.

These biscuits will keep fresh for well over a month if you keep them stored in an airtight container. They freeze very well.

Now that I have shared this recipe with you, all I ask is one thing. If you share, please give us credit by including the link to Our Bodacious Dog Mom Life blog site or our Bodacious Biscuit Love blog site.

Thank you and enjoy!
