What could make a tastier fall treat than the rich flavor of pumpkin? Pumpkin and peanut butter, of course! These pumpkin-peanut-butter treats will knock your dog’s socks off… if he’s wearing socks!

To begin, you’ll need…
1 cup wheat flour
1/4 cup canned pumpkin
2 tbsp peanut butter
1 egg
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp cinnamon

Preheat your oven to 350°. Now, pop all of the ingredients into a bowl, and mix it up. The dough is going to be really stiff, but work those ingredients together! Then, add water to moisten to a soft doughy consistency – not runny, but not stiff, rather like bread dough before it rises.

Next you’re going to sprinkle your work area with a healthy dose of flour. Turn the dough onto the floured surface, and give it a massage! LOL That’s right, you’re going to knead the dough for about 10 minutes to get the gluten in the flour to really hold it together. It should be soft and stretchy when you’re done, like elastic – so don’t add too much flour, just enough to ensure that it doesn’t stick.

Pat or roll your dough to about 1/4 inch thick. Then use a cup or cookie cutter to make pretty shapes, put them on a cookie sheet, and bake for 30-40 minutes. Cool them off before you let Fido have a taste!

Thank you to Sprouts Farmers Market for a great recipe!
