If you want to make homemade Christmas dog cookies for your pup, then we got the recipe for you! This simple from scratch Christmas dog cookies only uses five simple ingredients. I’m sure you probably already have all of these ingredients in your pantry at home too!

I combine peanut butter, honey, eggs, flour, and oat flour into a stiff cookie dough that is easy to roll out and cut out fun holiday shapes. This holiday dog cookie recipe is one that you can have fun making, you can even involve your kids if you want.

John John is even more obsessed with this recipe for homemade Christmas Dog Cookies than he is for my traditional Dog Cookie recipe! I can’t believe it, honestly, as my original recipe is soft and chewy. But these homemade Christmas Dog Cookies are thin and crispy. And they are brushed with honey which gives them a golden brown color and a little sweetness. I think this is why he likes them so much!

FAQ’s

Can I make these into another shape?

Yes, this recipe would be perfect if you want to use a dog bone cookie cutter, Santa, or any other shape. You could even use a heart for Valentine’s Day.

Can I make these without a cookie cutter?

Yes, you can totally make these without a cookie cutter. You can still roll out the dough and just cut them into squares or triangles. If you don’t want to roll them out (which I feel you), then you can roll them into balls with your hands and flatten them so they are very thin.

What cookie cutters did you use for this recipe?

I used an assortment of holiday cookie cutters – a snowflake, Christmas tree, candy cane, and gingerbread man. You can find the cookie cutters I used to make this recipe here.

Can I make this recipe soft and chewy?

Absolutely! If you have an older dog or one who needs a soft treat, then you can definitely make this cookie soft and chewy instead of crispy. Just bake them for less time. Try about 5 minutes less, and go from there. I had some thick ones, as I am terrible at rolling out cookie dough, and the thicker ones that baked for the same time ended up being soft and chewy.

How should I store homemade Christmas Dog Cookies?

These can be stored at room temperature for up to 2 weeks. They are a thin and crispy dog cookie, so they don’t need to be in an airtight container. But I have actually been storing them in an airtight cookie jar for the past two weeks and they are still good in that too. So this is a very forgiving recipe! If you are going to keep them longer than 2 weeks, I’d recommend freezing them in an airtight container.

Why Organic for Your Dog?

You may be wondering why you should buy organic food for your dog. It’s the same reasons that you should buy organic food for yourself. Your dog’s health is important, just like yours. So, treating them right with organic ingredients will benefit their long term health.

And organic ingredients are much healthier for your dog to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients! And that counts for your pup too!
