Peanutty Bites Doggie Biscuits

I've been making my own home made dog food for many years, but for some reason never tried my hand at making doggie biscuits.
And I have no idea why.

My Chimi gets all kinds of treats that I buy, and in fact she has her own little table, with a selection of treats, and is given a couple a day.  I try to change them out, so she doesn't get bored with the same all the time.

Well, I get bored eating the same thing, so, why shouldn't she get some variety?

I decided that it was time I tried my hand at baking her some treats.
This is my first try.
I nailed it.

These are Chimi approved.

I got my inspiration from this recipe I saw on the King Arthur website and  here is the Link to their recipe.

Of course I changed it up, but just a little, I added a couple tablespoons of bacon fat, cause I had it and didn't want to throw it out, or eat it myself.

 Mix together the dry ingredients,

then add the eggs and peanut butter.  This will be crumbly.  Then add the water, just enough to make a dough.
 
Roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thick and cut out with a cookie cutter.  I had a doggy bone shaped one, so I used it.

Cut out the shapes, gathering and rerolling the scraps until you've used up all the dough.

Bake for about 40 minutes, checking after 30 minutes.   They should be a dark golden brown and crisp all the way through.   Remove from oven and let cool right on the pans.

Take one cookie off, and burn your fingers on it, tossing it from hand to hand so you can cool it off quickly and let your dog taste test it.
I got just over 50 biscuits, and Chimi did approve the taste.
