My impatient face…

Never baked? Me either. Got a few hours and a loving puppy? YES! What time is it? Cookie time!!

Of course, as Kayden loves peanut butter, I made peanut butter cookies!

PEANUT AND PUMPKIN COOKIES: (APPROX. 30 COOKIES)
Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (we fancy)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 2 tbsp creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Cooking:

  • Pre-Heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C)
  • Combine all ingredients into a bowl and whisk
  • Add tbsp’s of water as needed to make dough kneadable (until it is dry, stiff and entirely combined)
  • Flour a surface and roll dough to 3/4 inch thick (I used a wine bottle…sssshhhhh)
  • Cut into desired shapes!!
  • Bake in pre-heated oven until hard (40-45 mins)

Trust me – I may or may not have eaten 1 or 10 of these, they’re delicious…but adding cream cheese frosting makes them amazing…here’s how:

Cream cheese frosting:

  • 8 oz of fat free cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp plain fat free yogurt
  • Mix together 3 above ingredients
  • Mix in 1 tbsp plain flour until desired consistency for piping (I used 3 tbsp)
  • Separate into 3 bowls and add 2 drops of food coloring (small amounts of food human food coloring does not harm dogs)
  • Pour into zip lock bag and form tip by cutting small hole in 1 corner – decorate completely cooled cookies
    OR
  • Dip completely cooled cookies into icing

NOTE: These cookies should be given as treats only. Ensure that your dog is tolerant to all ingredients before making! Enjoy!
