Don’t forget the pets on Christmas day! I always enjoy having gifts for all of our pets to enjoy whether it’s a toy or indulgence. I remember one year when I was a child I made fudge for my goat. Apparently it is very rich for goats and she got very sick. I had to call the vet and give her a shot! I’ll never remember that!
Here’s a fun gift for your doggy whether it’s given on Christmas morning or as a daily treat. Most dogs love peanut butter!
Easy Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits
Yields: 2 dozen
- Medium dog bone cookie cutter (try this R&M Dog Bone Cookie Cutter)
- 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 cup pumpkin purée
- 1/4 cup (4Tablespoons) peanut butter
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 Tablespoons water (more, if needed)
Preheat oven to 350°. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Add all of the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix well.
The dough will be coarse and a bit dry.
You can add another Tablespoon of water, if necessary, to make it more pliable to roll out.
Sprinkle a small amount of flour on your work space
and roll out the pumpkin dough until it’s about 1/2 inch thick.
Use your cookie dough cutter to cut out the dog bone shapes.
Place the cut-outs on the baking sheet. The biscuits will not expand so you can place them close to each other, if needed.
Bake for 18-20 minutes. Allow the pan to cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes.
Store in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
These would be also great as a gift for any of your dog owning friends!
