Almond Butter Dog Treat Recipe

I bought some new cookie cutters and I couldn’t wait to try them out. And the Almond Butter Dog Treat Recipe was the perfect dough to sink them into. Not only that, this is the perfect treat for your dog to sink his chompers into, especially if you’re trying to get him off the peanut butter bandwagon. This was the first time I’ve tried almond butter as a substitute and Oscar loved it. Just like the cookie promises, Oscar though these treats are “Nom Nom Nom!”
