Easy Holiday Dog Cookie Recipe

19 Dec

easy dog cookiesThe perfect present for your furry friends!

This is the recipe I use to make our treats at home. The result is a very hard, crunchy cookie – just the way our guys like ’em.

The directions suggest you leave the cookies to cool overnight in the oven, but if your canine companions simply can not wait that long – it’s ok to serve after cooling on a wire rack (they just will not get as crunchy).

 

I’ve found that these cookies stay good for about 1-2 weeks in an airtight jar. They also freeze well for up to a year. (more…)

Hope you enjoy my critters as much as I enjoyed making them!

I love the slight imperfection that comes with handmade goods. They feel much more alive than machine-generated massproducts and I like to think that the intention of thought, attention to detail and most of all love that goes into handmade creations will also resonate with the new owner.

I hand drew this owl silhouette, inspired by traditional French embroidery, vintage lace and doilies from France. The design features multiple delicate woodland motifs from nature like flowers, branches, leaves and birds while incorporating abstract and geometrical shapes like hearts.
