Holiday Treats for Your Four-Legged Friends!
Don’t forget Fido this Thanksgiving. Whip up a batch of these all-natural dog biscuits to have on hand. These last up to six weeks in an airtight container in the fridge, and up to six months in the freezer. Dog bone-shaped cookie cutters are available at Walmart and Michaels for about a dollar.
⅔ cup pumpkin puree (canned or fresh)
⅓ cup chunky peanut butter
2½ cups whole wheat flour (can substitute almond flour for gluten-free biscuits)
In large bowl, mix puree, peanut butter and eggs on medium speed with mixer. Add flour a half cup at a time and mix to a smooth dough.
Roll out on a floured board and cut with cookie cutters. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350° F for 20 minutes, then turn off oven. Let biscuits remain inside on cookie sheet for about 15 minutes, then remove. Biscuits will harden up nicely. Store in airtight container.
Yields: 2 dozen
