Handy hints

  • Use a stainless steel cookie cutter and grease the inside to ensure the batter doesn’t stick.
  • If using plastic cookie cutters, cook the pancakes first and then cut out heart shapes once cooked.
  • Milk and butter can be substituted with dairy-free variations for dogs with allergies.
