There is going to be a secret ingredient that will make my cookies a bit different, Eskie fur. Teehee! For sure there will be some in the cookies since I am making them. I hope my friends won't mind since I am sharing these cookies with them. I wonder if they will be able to smell me on the cookies. Heehee!
Here are the cookie cutters I will be using. A bone, a heart, a fire hydrant, a paw and a dog house.
First we start with the pumpkin, then we mix in flour, eggs, peanut butter, salt and cinammon.
Then we roll out the dough using this rolling pin. Mommie held me in place so I could use my paws to hold onto the rolling pin coz I kept slipping off my chair.
I hope I am doing this right.
After we finished rolling out the dough, we cut out the shapes. What fun!
Here they are ready for baking!
Mommie turned on the Oven and I tried to stay in the kitchen and be brave. But when the mouth opened, I ran upstairs to the bedroom and asked Daddy to keep me company up there until the danger passed. So Mommie put the cookies in to bake without my help. After some time, Mommie called out that the cookies were ready. Oh boy! I ran downstairs eager to see how they turned out.
The whole place smelled so good. And look! The cookies turned out great!
So now we get to the best part. The Oven has been put to sleep and I get to taste the cookies.
Yummmmm!!!! Fresh baked doggie cookies. They are sooooo good! We were hoping to make many batches to give away to all my doggie pals but Mommie said we would hold off baking for a while since I got so scared and stressed because of the Oven. So we were only able to make enough to send to some doggies. I will try to be braver next time.
Here is the recipe:
Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Treats

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Whisk together the flour, eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl. Add water as needed to help make the dough workable, but the dough should be dry and stiff. Roll the dough into a 1/2-inch-thick roll. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces.
