  • To make the circles have paw prints on them here’s what I did.  After you cut the circles out, bake for 2 minutes.  Pull the tray out of the oven. Use thumb to make an imprint and the pinkie finger to make the little toes.  The imprint is easy to make if the dough is slightly warm rather than making it before you cook it.
