How To Make Homemade Peanut Butter Cookies?

Then using a large bowl gradually add and mix the flour, egg, water, and peanut butter. Continue mixing until the mixture is thick, firm, and sticky. Alternatively, this can be done using an electric mixer at low speed.
Then gently roll the dough on a flat surface until it is about ½ inch thick. Using the cookie-cutter, cut them into fun shapes attractive to your canine buddy. Finally, bake the cut cookies for about 20 minutes in an oven.
