Strawberry Shortbread Tennis Balls
With Wimbledon in full swing and British strawberries at their best, we decided to celebrate the two of these with our strawberry shortbread dog biscuits. After a quick search on Etsy we were able to find these novelty tennis ball shaped cookie cutters, which adds to the fun element of these biscuits (we also found tennis racket shaped cutters, so much fun!). Plus we all know how much our dogs love a tennis ball which is why we have decided to bake additional batches of these playful cookies to giveaway in our Fetch & Follow store and online with every order all throughout Wimbledon.

1tsp ground cinnamon
1tbsp coconut oil

De-stork the strawberries and then mash into a smooth paste
In a bowl shift together the flour and cinnamon, then add the oat bran.
Add the coconut oil and mashed strawberries to the dry ingredients
Using your hands start to combine the ingredients to form dough, adding water if the mix is to dry
Lightly flour a clean surface
Using a rolling pin roll the dough to the same thickness as a pound coin.
Using your novelty shaped cutter, cut out the dough to the shape of a tennis ball.
Place the cut shortbread onto the lined baking tray making sure to leave 1cm gap between each cookie
Bake for 10-12minutes or until golden and no longer soft to touch
