Peanut Butter – Pumpkin Dog Treats

Our Chocolate Lab, Pippin, always gets a treat whenever she goes for a walk

Since there have been recalls on so many brands of store bought dog treats, we decided to make them ourselves

 These by far, are the best!

 Add 2 1/2 cups of flour, 2 eggs and a pinch of salt to a mixing bowl

Let’s not forget the peanut butter!!

Add 3 tablespoons of peanut butter & 1 cup of pumpkin

Mix until well combined.  It will be thick and sticky

Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for at least 2 hours or up to overnight

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F

Once chilled, take out of fridge and sprinkle your work surface with flour

Sprinkle…sprinkle…sprinkle

 And…

PLOP!!!

 Be sure that your dough is dusted with flour

 

Separate in half and roll out your dough

 

 Cut your cookies into whatever shape makes you and your puppy happy

 Cut, cut, cut, cut

And peel!  Gather up the scraps, re-roll and cut out some more cookies.  Repeat with the other half of the dough

 
 Place as many cookies that can fit on the pan and fire ’em up for 25 minutes

While they’re baking, I’m taking time to write up this blog!

Ding! Now your delicious doggy treats are done!

Let cool on a wire rack and deliver to your favorite pupp!

 Someone’s excited!

 

 Since there are not a lot of preservatives, we like to freeze them and give Pippin a frozen treat or defrost a few at a time
