There’s no trick to mixing and rolling out these treats. All you need to do is make sure your ingredients are thoroughly blended. The same technique as how you would mix brownie batter. As for rolling them out and shaping them into cookies, the thickness of the dough doesn’t make a huge difference. Around 1/4 inch is perfect – but they don’t need to be precise!

Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet a few inches apart. The treats won’t shrink or expand which makes them easy to bake.

As irresistible as they are, be sure to let them cool before giving them to your pooches! And remember these are treats, so don’t give them more than a few at a time.
