How to Bake Homemade Easter Dog Biscuits 🐣
Do you want to show off your baking skills this Easter? We are here to show you just how simple it is to make delicious, fresh from the oven, home-baked treats, in just a few simple steps! We know that buying some baking essentials is proving a little harder than normal at the moment, but for these homemade treats, you need nothing more than a PawBakes Biscuit Baking kit and some water.
So get ready to spread a little love this Easter...
Your kit will include:
- A bone-shaped biscuit cutter
- Peanut butter and honey biscuit mix
You will need:
- Greaseproof baking tray
- Rolling pin
- 5 tbsp. (75ml) warm water
- Optional; any Easter themed cookie cutters that you may have laying around
1. First you will need to pre-heat your oven to 180C/Fan 160C/Gas mark 4.
2. Empty the contents of the biscuit mix into a large mixing bowl and remove 1 heaped tsp. to set aside and use later.
3. Add the 5tbsp. of warm water and mix.
4. You will then need to use your hands to bring this together and knead until you have a smooth dough - if needed you can add a little more water.
5. Now leave to rest... ⏱
6. After your dough has rested for 10 minutes, dust your worktop and rolling pin with the mix you kept aside from earlier and gently roll out your dough.
7. Using the cutter included in your box, and any Easter themed cutters you may already have, cut out your biscuits - approximately 1/2 cm thick.
8. Place your biscuits on a greaseproof baking tray and pop them in the centre of the oven for 18-20 minutes until golden brown.
9. Allow your perfectly baked biscuits to cool on a wire cooling rack before serving them up!
10. If you have any dog-safe 'chocolate' laying around, why not also try decorating your treats. Simply melt down the 'chocolate' by placing a bowl over a pan of simmering water. You can also add a few drops of vegetable oil if it's a little thick. Now you can decorate your treats with different patterns or dip part of them into the choc-icing so that they are lightly covered.
**It's important to only use 'chocolate' that is made especially for dogs! Human chocolate contains a chemical called 'theobromine', which is toxic to dogs and can be extremely harmful (read more).
If you're baking your biscuits as a gift, you could use some ribbon to tie some of the biscuits together with a bow or put them in a little gift box! An Easter basket is also a really lovely way to store your Easter treats.
