DIY guide: How to make your own dog biscuits this Christmas

No one wants to leave out their four-legged friend at Christmas. Even if you don’t have a dog, you can always make these for someone who does.

Below, we’ve listed the ingredients you’ll need and a simple step-by-step guide on how to make them.

So, grab your apron, roll up your sleeves and prepare to cut some shapes – we’re talking biscuits, of course…

What you need

  • 300g flour (any flour)
  • 1 egg
  • 150ml water
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • Rolling pin
  • Biscuit cutter

How to make

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until 
you get a pastry-like consistency (add more flour to stiffen).

Flour your work surface then roll out the mixture to about 1cm thick. Then use your biscuit cutter to cut out your shapes. A dog bone-shaped cutter would be perfect but any small cutter will do –festive stars or trees look great, too.

Place biscuits on a baking tray with greaseproof paper and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees for 20 mins. Take out of the oven when the biscuits are golden brown, and leave to cool.

Use an old jar (a charity shop find, or upcycle a large pickle or gherkin jar) pop the biscuits in and decorate the jar with string and a wooden Christmas label. A sprig of foraged holly gives a festive twist.
