Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits

Store bought dog treats are expensive, so I've gone to making my own from time to time. Gracie and Glory absolutely love them, and I like the fact that I know exactly what ingredients they contain.

2 cups of whole wheat flour (I have also used unbleached flour.)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup natural peanut butter, creamy or chunky
1 cup skim milk (I didn't have skim milk so I used 1/2 cup 2% milk and 1/2 cup water)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In another bowl, combine peanut butter and milk, mixing well.
Add the milk mixture to the flour and mix well. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll out to 1/4 inch thick and use cookie cutters to cut out shapes. (You could also shape the dough into a log and slice or roll into balls and press with a fork.) Place biscuits on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheet to a cooling rack. When cool, store in an airtight container.

For me this recipe yeilds approx 74 biscuits of different shapes and sizes.
