At this festive time of year, there are lots of things to keep out of your pet’s reach ~ chocolate, caffeine, onion, garlic, grapes, raisins, bread dough, tinsel, ribbons, garlands, ornaments, electric cords, candles, poinsettia, holly, ivy, mistletoe, and xylitol (a sweetener in gum and candies).
Here’s a treat that good for dogs to eat . . .
Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Puppy Dog Treats
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Combine first 5 ingredients. Stir well. Add flour and beat with an electric mixer until dough forms. Roll dough out on a floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness.
Cut dough into biscuits using a 2-inch cookie cutter. Transfer to parchment paper lined baking sheet(s).
Bake 45-60 minutes until biscuits are crisp and golden brown. Turn oven off. Leave biscuits in oven to dry overnight.
Makes 4-5 dozen dog treats.
Woof . . . that’s better!
