With frigid temperatures in Denver our dogs have turned into floor potatoes. floor. Look at those faces. One of them is overly dramatic. Can you guess which one? I decided to cheer them up with a batch of their favorite dog bone cookies recipe.
Dog Bone Cookies Recipe
I did a quick Google search for dog bone cookies, but some of the recipes required a trip to the grocery store. Not going to have in sub zero temps. And, then I found this 3 ingredient dog bone cookie recipe (milk, wheat flour and peanut butter), technically it was four ingredients if you count the baking powder.
The dog bone dough was easy to mix, roll and cut like thick sugar cookie dough.
3 1/2 Ingredient Dog Bone Recipe
The first time I made this dog bone recipe I had a little trouble with the oven temperature. The original recipe had multiple typos and I suspect the oven temperature was incorrect. The original recipe said to bake the dog bones at 200 degrees. But, after 40 minutes the dog bones were very smooshy. I made a few random oven temperature changes and I settled on an oven temp of 350. Like most cookies!
I would start at 350 and bake for 20 minutes to get a baseline on a correct temperature. (That last sentence sounded so technical)! I sorted & wrapped these treats up with twine I found on sale from Crate & Barrel. Let’s not forget our pets for Valentines Day! These make great gifts for neighbors or teachers’ pets (get it)?

The original recipe said bake at 200 degrees, but after 40 minutes the dog bones were super smooshy. So after a few random temperature changes I settled on a cookie temperature of 350. I would start at 350 and bake for 20 minutes to get a baseline on a correct temperature. Trust me your dog will love these regardless of whether they are over or slightly undercooked!
