I made some dog treats! These are a lot of fun to make. If only I had a dog-bone shaped cookie cutter! I used a small gingerbread man shape because our dog is small sized, too. He loves pumpkin & it’s good for him because it is full of vitamins and safe for him to eat. I’d say use your best judgement on biscuit size, based on other treat sizes your dog is used to.
I’m so excited about making homemade dog treats! I can’t wait to make some different flavors. I’ll be sure to post & share the next batch! I love this pic of his first taste of a “pumpkin-man” 🙂
Yield: 4 dozen small treats
1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons dry milk
2 1/2 cups flour (wheat is probably better)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Blend eggs and pumpkin together; add salt, dry milk, and flour. Add water as needed to make the dough somewhat workable. The dough should be dry and stiff, don’t be concerned with crumbs being left in the bowl. You will need to mix this with your hands because it is too stiff for an electric mixer.
Roll out dough to 1/2-inch thick. Cut into shapes. Place 1/4 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet (these don’t expand much). Bake for 20 minutes on one side, then turn over and bake another 20 minutes.
Keep refrigerated in an air-tight container.
