Dog-Friendly Christmas Cookies Recipe

Christmas cookies aren’t just for humans! If you’re wanting to treat your dog this holiday season, here’s a super simple dog-friendly cookie recipe you can make for your pups that they’re sure to enjoy.


  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup dog safe peanut butter*
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour 
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon 


Pre-heat oven to 350. Combine pumpkin, eggs, and peanut butter. Add flour and knead into a dough. Sometimes you may need to add more flour to get right dough consistency. Split dough into two equal portions. 

Take half of the dough and roll to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out into holiday themed shapes. 

Take the other half of dough and roll into roughly equally-sized balls. Roll balls in flour and use thumb to make indent. Add small amount of dog-friend fruit preserves*. 

Bake for 20-40 minutes depending on what crunch factor you’re looking for. 

Once cooled, decorate the cut out cookies using icing and sprinkles!  

*Watch out for ingredients such as Xylitol when picking out peanut butter and fruit preserves.
