It’s pumpkin season again! Everywhere we look we see pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin flavored popcorn, pumpkin beer, pumpkin flavored protein bars, even pumpkin spiced Cheerios! But what about the dog? Surely he should get his pumpkin on too? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here’s an easy recipe that you and the kids can make just for your pumpkin-loving pup.
♥ 1-1/2 cups pure canned pumpkin (do NOT get pumpkin pie filling. Look for Pure Pumpkin)
♥ 2-1/2 cups all purpose flour
♥ 1 egg
♥ Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
♥ Combine the pumpkin and egg in a mixing bowl.
♥ Stir in the flour, one half cup at a time, using a spoon or hand mixer.
♥ Roll dough on floured surface until it’s about 1/2 inch thick.
♥ Use cookie cutters in any shape you choose (we chose dog bones!) to cut out shapes.
♥ Place cut-outs on parchment paper covered baking sheet (make sure to leave space between as the treats will expand a bit while baking).
♥ Bake for 25 minutes turning over once half way through, until treats are golden brown.
♥ Makes approximately 2 dozen, 2-1/2 inch treats (more or less depending on your choice of cookie cutter!)
♥ Cool and serve to your drooling dog!
Then, be sure to let us know what your sweet little pooch thinks of these treats just for him!
