Homemade Peanut Butter Oat Dog Biscuits

I could not let the Cookie Project go by without a cookie for dogs – in this case my friend’s Bull Terrier, Maya.  I don’t have a dog right now, but I used to have a miniature poodle, Scruffles.  So, I totally get how dogs are major family members and deserve their own treats. When [...]
