Whew! Long time no see, huh? It seems like every time things start getting busy, blogging flies out the window. Hopefully I’ll be better about posting consistently because we missed you guys!
Wednesday was our sweet Callie’s third birthday!
Last year around this same time, we made Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Treats as a celebratory treat for Callie’s second birthday, and we thought we’d repost that same recipe now. The funny thing is we normally aren’t the type to make a big deal out of pet’s birthday’s- no cake or presents around here that’s for sure. But these doggie treats are too fun to pass up. Plus, having some leftover canned pumpkin lying around this time of year is a given, so this recipe is perfect for using it up.
Clearly, Callie loved her treats! (This is her “please, please, please! say that it’s okay for me to eat it” face :))
Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Treats
2 1/2 cups flour, I used all purpose but the recipe recommended whole wheat
3 T peanut butter, I used chunky
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350*.
Put all ingredients together in bowl and mix well. I used my KitchenAid mixer. If you need a bit more moisture add water to the mixture one tablespoon at a time. The dough should be pretty dry, so don’t add too much water. I didn’t need to add any water. Once mixed, turn dough out onto a floured surface and roll out to 1/4 to 1/2″ thickness. Cut out to desired shape. Put onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for a total of 40 to 50 minutes. I turned the cookies halfway through the cooking time. Keep in an airtight container.
