Dog Treat - Exploring Cricut

Happy Tuesday everyone!  It is my day to share a project over at the Exploring Cricut blog.  The kids and I decided to make some homemade doggie treats for all the dogs in our lives this past Christmas.  Once I made them, I decided they needed cute bags.  Here is what I came up with:

Aren't they cute??  I cut the bone and dog from Create a Critter 2.  I love how they turned out :)

Here is a pick of the bones in the bags.  I found a cute set of dog cookie cutters at Michael's and got them at 50% off - gotta like that!!  I used Scrappy Moms "Amusing Animals" for the sentiment.  I thought it was perfect!

I found the dog treat recipe on Pinterest, the link to it is HERE, and just in case, here is the recipe for the treats.  They were really easy to make up:

Homemade Dog Treats

1/2 cup of peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk together peanut butter, honey, oil and chicken broth. In a separate bowl, combine flours and oatmeal. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients.

Place dough on flour dusted surface. Roll or press dough out to about 1/4” inch thick. Use a small bone cookie cutter to cut out cookies. My cookie cutter was a 5-inch bone-shaped , but for small dogs you may want to use a small cookie cutter (around 2″). Roll out leftover scraps and cut out as many as possible.

Put cut out cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 14-16 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack.

Don't forget that every day, each one of the designers has a Cricut creation to share with you.  We hope to inspire you to explore your Cricut cartridges and have lots of fun doing it!!  Be sure to pop by the blog everyday and be prepared to be amazed!
