All of my life, I’ve heard people say that dogs dream about chasing rabbits, but I’m pretty sure my dogs dream about peanut butter. Peanut blossoms are my favorite cookie, so I decided to make a version for dogs. These are soft cookies. I think older dogs would especially appreciate the soft texture. Thanks to my sister, Alice G Patterson Photography, for the photos!

Chocolate is toxic to dogs, but carob isn’t. However, since so many people just look at a photo without reading the directions, I didn’t want to use carob, for fear people would mistake it for chocolate. Instead, I topped off my dog’s peanut butter dreams with the cutest grain-free treat.
