Sweet Werewolf Bones for all the little werewolves to gnaw on. This gingerbread dough makes perfectly spooky Werewolf bone cookie!
I created this recipe for Dixie Crystals, but all words and opinions are 100% mine.
These little gingerbread bones aren’t for our fur babies but they sure do look like the bones that our pups go crazy over! You know that Halloween is almost here so we’re still making lots and lots of Halloween treats around here!
These werewolf bones are made from a classic gingerbread dough and cut out using a 3 inch bone cookies cutter.
Now I know that you’ll want to make this gingerbread dough and start cutting bones out right away but let it sit in the fridge first.
I know it’s going to be hard to wait but it’ll be worth it and it’ll make it so much easier to roll the dough out before cutting it into bones.
Also, make sure that you flour the surface and rolling pin very well before and during the process of rolling and cutting the dough. Flouring the rolling pin and the surface will keep the dough from sticking.
I’ve made these gingerbread bones soft and crunchy. I like them both ways so. If you want them to be sturdy but soft, bake them for about 10 minutes. If you want them to be a bit harder and cruncher, bake them for a little bit longer before taking them out of the oven.
Then, to give them a little extra dog bone touch, take a spoon or a tablespoon and make a few little indentations to mimic the look of regular dog treats. Pile them high in a new clean, unused doggie bowl for the perfect dog bone look for your Halloween party!
