After I roasted, pureed, and froze some pumpkin (and Lizzie happily gobbled up a couple of bits that made it to the floor), I got to thinking that homemade dog biscuits with pumpkin in ’em might be pretty popular around here. A quick Google of course turned up a few recipes (everyone thinks of these things first, I swear!) and I whipped up a variation of these Pumpkin Dog Biscuits that I found over on Food.com.

I thought squirrel and acorn shapes were appropriate for the season (and for Miss Squirrel-Obsessed Lizzie).

Liz thinks they’re appropriate for scarfing down.

Pumpkin Dog Biscuits

The perfect fall treat for your pooch. Pureed pumpkin is packed with nutrients - and dogs love it.


Ingredients:


  • 1/2 cup pureed pumpkin - canned (not pumpkin pie filling!) or homemade

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup milk


Directions:


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. In a large bowl, mix together the pumpkin and the eggs with a fork.

  3. Add the flour, salt, and milk, and combine until well-mixed. The dough should be very stiff - add a little water if needed to make it workable.

  4. Sprinkle some flour on your work surface and roll the dough to about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick, sprinkling on more flour if needed to prevent sticking.

  5. Cut out shapes, and then lay them on an ungreased cookie sheet, about a half inch apart.

  6. Try to ignore the pathetic, pleading dog staring intently from just outside the kitchen.

  7. Bake for 20 minutes, then flip them over and bake for 20 minutes more.

  8. Let cool, and then treat your pooch!
