Christmas Dog Treats

Directions For
Dog Christmas Cookies

  • Place ingredients in your bread machine on the dough cycle.
  • When dough is ready, roll it to 1/4" thickness and cut out Christmas trees (or another Christmas shape), with Christmas tree cookie cutter.
  • Place dog cookies on a lightly oiled cookie sheet or an ungreased silicone baking mat.
  • Bake for 1 hour at 275 degrees, checking occasionally to make sure that the dog treats don't get too brown.
  • Turn off the oven and let the holiday dog treats finish drying overnight. The dog biscuits will be hard and crisp, when completely dry. If you have a dehydrator, you can finish the drying process by dehydrating the dog cookies for 2-3 hours in your dehydrator.

To make these cookies, you'll need to have some Wilton mini Christmas cookie cutters or, if you have a larger dog, you might prefer using a Wilton Christmas Cookie Shapes Pan, where you just press the dough into a pan instead of rolling and cutting.

If you are just going to make these cookies once a year (for your own dog and as gifts), then you probably don't need heavy duty cookie cutters.

However, if you purchase good quality cookie cutters, they will last for years! And you will find lots of ways to use them for your own family treats—like decorative cut-out shapes for pie crusts or novelty cheese cut-outs for cheese and crackers.

Enjoy the recipe…
