Madison Turns 4!!

This Wednesday is Madison's 4th birthday and as crazy as this may sound, I make something special every year for my dog's birthdays. This year, since I have been on a cookie craze, I decided to make her birthday cookies. I decided on a pretty basic dog treat recipe and to top it off I had everything I needed already in the house. The recipe called for 2 cups whole wheat flour, 1 tbsp Baking Powder, 1 cup peanut butter and 1 cup milk. I doubled the recipe though so there were enough treats to share. 
I make dog treats pretty often, so I wanted to do something special. I decided on a sandwich cookie and pulled out my shortbread cookie cutters. Then I needed to find something dog friendly to fill the middles with. After doing some research I found that I could use royal icing. Done!
While I waited for the cookies to cool, I colored my icing pink and yellow and was ready to start sandwiching!
I spooned about 1/2 tsp royal icing on to each cookie and smooshed them together. 
I put them into cellophane bags to share with their friends and tied them with pink and yellow ribbon. 

The last step was a taste test...SUCCESS!!
