Puppy Crack

Mandy Nolen


My Shih Tzu Gizmo has a slight addiction to peanut butter and bacon; but then again, who doesn't? I decided to try and make him some cookies one day, and this is the result- PUPPY CRACK! We never used the word "cookie" with him until I made these, so when you say that word- he goes ballistic and runs for the fridge! Hope your pooch loves them like mine does! Truly addicting to them like a drug! My kids have been know to snag one or two cookies too! :)

How to Make Puppy Crack


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Add water until it resembles a thick dough, just thick enough to stick together- not thin like people cookie dough!
  3. Press out to about 1/3" depending on how thick you want the cookies; they do not rise.
  4. Use your favorite cookie cutter!! I used a heart shaped cutter and still ended up cutting each heart into quarters since I have a small dog.
  5. Bake for about 45 minutes to an hour. Take out of oven and cut before they cool to reduce crumbs.
  6. Feed that fur baby some puppy crack and watch the begging begin!
  7. Store in the fridge for maximum freshness since you used real bacon!
