New Family Addition ... We make you Homemade Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats

Yes you read that right we have a new family member. A very sweet 5 year old Mini Pincher / Jack Russell Terrier named Chase. My friend had been foster him to rehabilitate him, from a bad home situation. He's a bit timid and shy but he's fitting in perfect with the family. My youngest who is usually afraid of dogs is in love!

So like anyone new to my home when you come to visit I make you something to eat! I went on a search for an easy dog treat!  I found a recipe for Homemade Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats on Damn Delicious. Easy and a big hit with our new pup.


Ingredients
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour, or more, as needed
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat; set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat pumpkin puree, peanut butter and eggs on medium-high until well combined, about 1-2 minutes. Gradually add 2 1/2 cups flour at low speed, beating just until incorporated. Add an additional 1/4 cup flour at a time just until the dough is no longer sticky.

Working on a lightly floured surface, knead the dough 3-4 times until it comes together. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Using cookie cutters, cut out desired shapes and place onto the prepared baking sheet.

Place into oven and bake until the edges are golden brown, about 20-25 minutes.

Let cool completely.



Meet Chase!
