For the fourth installment of homemade holiday gifts, I bring you homemade dog treats. Don’t forget your furry friends this holiday season!
My dad forwarded me an email he received from the American Kennel Club that included this recipe.
2 1/2 cups whole wheat or barley flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup canned pumpkin
3 tbs peanut butter
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Stir the flour and cinnamon together.
In a separate bowl, combine the pumpkin, eggs, and peanut butter. Whisk until mostly smooth.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry. The mixture will be pretty dry and crumbly. Add a bit of water until it’s workable. If it gets too wet, add a bit more flour.
Roll the dough out until it’s about 1/2 inch thick. Use cookie cutters to cut into various shapes.
Bake for 40 minutes, or until hard and dry.
