Puppy Sugar Cookies…and a Puppy!

How cute are these puppy cookies? But isn’t the real thing even cuter??

Yep, that’s right! We brought home a new puppy this weekend, and I made cookies to celebrate the occasion! (When you’re trying to learn to decorate, any event counts as a reason for cookies!). We picked out our puppy a few weeks ago, and this week he was finally old enough for us to go pick him up and bring him home. We named him Scamp and are in love already. He’s a maltipoo (a maltese/poodle mix) and so tiny and fluffy.

Not a great picture, but it shows you how tiny he is!

I could talk about our puppy for days (Mike can attest to that!), but this site is supposed to be about food…so back to the cookies! I made little white dogs with brown ears to look like Scamp, and I think they turned out pretty well. I had no idea how to mimic fluffy fur, so I just ignored that part and decorated as usual. I also made a few cookies in the shape of dog bones. Sorry Scamp, these bones are for humans, not dogs!

I used my normal sugar cookie and glaze icing recipe and the cookies turned out great. I’m all for simple designs that you can’t mess up too much, and those dog bones are about as simple as it gets! We enjoyed sharing these cookies with friends and family as they came to visit our new puppy. Although as I said before, they are not nearly as cute as the real thing!

    adorable – both puppy & cookies. The only thing that could make this post better is if you told us you saved a life and rescued the pup as opposed to buying. My fingers are crossed that is what you did!

    Scamp looks exactly like my 2-year-old did when she was a puppy. She is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Bichon Frise mix. Have lots of fun with this fur baby.

    Congratulations on your new “puppy child”. What a sweet face your baby has. Love the name too. Good luck with the new addition. Puppies are so much work but worth every minute. We have a 6 month old Boston terrier named Nutmeg and I fall more in love with her each day. Cute cookies too!
