I needed to make cut-out cookies for my daughter's Scooby Doo party at daycare. I was too lazy to frost the cookies once they were made, so I adapted sugar cookie recipes to become peanut butter roll outs. Since the initial batch was cut in the shapes of dog bones and terriers, they are now peanut butter puppies. Prep time includes refrigeration time.
