The holiday season is a time for indulgence, and that includes our beloved furry friends. As we deck the halls and gather around the festive table, let’s not forget to include our loyal companions in the celebration. Explore the art of crafting delectable treats and a Christmas dinner tailored to suit the taste buds of our furry pals. After all, ’tis the season for joy, love, and a whole lot of tail-wagging!
The joy of Christmas extends to our four-legged family members, and what better way to express our love than with homemade, dog-friendly treats? Consider baking a batch of Gingerbread Dog Biscuits, specially crafted to be safe and delicious for your pup. Here’s a simple recipe to get you started:
2 ½ cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup water
Preheat your oven to 180°C.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and cinnamon.
In a separate bowl, beat the egg and then add applesauce, molasses, and water. Mix well.
Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until a dough forms.
Roll out the dough on a floured surface and use cookie cutters to create festive shapes.
Place the treats on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
Do you know the fun part? You can eat them together with your dog and enjoy each others company.
These homemade treats not only make for a thoughtful gift but also ensure your pup can join in the holiday treat festivities without any worries.
