Cook with Books: The Highly Trained Dogs of Professor Petit

Cook with Books: The Highly Trained Dogs of Professor Petit

We recently read Carol Ryrie Brink’s The Highly Trained Dogs of Professor Petit.  If you haven’t read this sweet story before, you’re missing out! There’s humor, adventure, and mystery in this short chapter book and it’s a good read for the whole family.

It’s also a great book to read for National Puppy Day on March 23rd–and a great time to cook up some yummy treats for the puppies in your family!

This recipe comes from my friend (and fellow homeschooling mom!) Nancy, and our dog has liked them so much, so I’m thankful she shared this recipe with us!  I love that it uses ingredients I usually already have on hand.

Just mix your flour, egg,…

pumpkin, and peanut butter!

Roll out the dough and cut out shapes–How cute is this set??  All that’s left is the baking.  Easy peasy!

If you are talented like Nancy, you can melt candy melts or yogurt chips to decorate them, too!  Wouldn’t these make cute gifts?
