Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats

These freshly baked dog treats can be cooling on your counter today. Made with only a handful of ingredients. 


 

Here’s how you make them:

You’ll start by whisking the shortening, and eggs, together. Followed by adding in the peanut butter, and canned pumpkin (making sure it was labeled 100% pumpkin, and not pumpkin pie filling). After whisking the shortening, eggs, peanut butter, and canned pumpkin together; it’s time to stir in the flour. With a wooden spoon you will stir in the flour until the mixture becomes crumbly. Use your hands to finish mixing, until a ball of dough is formed. Once a dough is formed and holds it shape, it is now ready to be rolled out on a lightly floured surface. The dough can be rolled out to about 1/4 inch thickness.

A small cookie cutter (1 1/2 inches) was used to make the dog treats. Place the treats on a non-stick baking sheet and bake in a preheated 350 F degree oven – for 40 minutes. Allow the treats to cool completely, before giving to you dog.

    First Thank you for skin cream recipe. On the dog biscuits what can be used for dogs with grainfree diets?
    Thank you for any suggestions.

      Hi Dawn, I’m glad to hear you like the skin cream recipe. :-)
      I haven’t used grain free flour. But, I’m sure coconut flour, or almond flour can be used. You may need to add more of the grain-free flour than the recipe calls for.

      If you do make them grain-free, please, let us know how they turned out.

      Happy Baking!
