This holiday dog treats recipe makes cute little Christmas tree shaped dog cookies that you can make for your Best Friend or give to other dogs as special homemade gifts.
Your bread machine does the work for this one. Simply place the ingredients in your bread maker, let it mix and process the dough.
Come back, make shapes and bake!
If you give these cute holiday dog cookies as gifts, make sure you package them with flair. Put them in Christmas treat bags or in special treat boxes like this gingerbread treat box or this holiday striped box with a window. Presentation is important!
You can make these dog Christmas cookies plain (as shown in the photo), or you can decorate them.
The sky is the limit—use your imagination for the shapes and the decorations. You'll think of dozens of other great ideas on your own!
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…
