Today I’m going to share one of my favorite fall dog treat recipes that you can make at home with your furry taste tester… um, I mean Pomeranian!
My favorite time of year in The States is almost here… Fall… Harvest Time!
Living in Las Vegas the weather gets very hot in the Summer and around the end of September and early October it finally cools down… (if you call 80 degrees cool) I love putting out my fall decorations of pumpkins, cinnamon sticks and warm apple cider candles!
A big part of this Harvest Celebration I enjoy is making Pumpkin flavored treats for my Pomeranians! They gobble them up every chance they get. When I’m in the kitchen I always have three little taste testers lined up and at the ready. (Additionally I no longer have a need for a broom. They pounce on anything dropping from the counter… literally. Like lions pouncing on their prey… but obviously about 500 lbs lighter)
The market is stocked with canned pumpkin and canned pumpkin pie mix. For this recipe you want “Canned Pumpkin” The can’s may look the same, so make sure and pick up the correct one. You can also use fresh pumpkin if you choose!
Also if you’re feeling creative, feel free to add in some chopped apple, oats, cinnamon or any other fresh dog safe ingredients you have around the house.
Pommy Mommy Pumpkin Pomeranian Treat Recipe
2 1/2 C Whole Wheat Flour
2 Large Eggs
2/3 C Pumpkin purée. Canned or fresh
3 TBL Peanut Butter (Mounding)
Place all ingredients in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment.
Mix on medium for about a minute or until the dough looks like a bunch of little dough balls. If you pinch a piece and it crumbles, add a little water. If it’s really sticky, it’s too wet and you’ll need to add a little flour.
Gather the dough together and form into a ball. Place on a lightly floured work surface and roll it out to about 1/4-inch thickness. Use small cookie cutter and cut into shapes.
Place the cookies on a baking sheet. They can be crowded pretty close together since they don’t expand much.
