{Homemade Christmas Gifts!} - Part 4 - Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats

For the fourth installment of homemade holiday gifts, I bring you homemade dog treats.  Don't forget your furry friends this holiday season!

My dad forwarded me an email he received from the American Kennel Club that included this recipe.

You'll need:

2 1/2 cups whole wheat or barley flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup canned pumpkin
2 eggs
3 tbs peanut butter

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Stir the flour and cinnamon together.

In a separate bowl, combine the pumpkin, eggs, and peanut butter.  Whisk until mostly smooth.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry.  The mixture will be pretty dry and crumbly.  Add a bit of water until it's workable.  If it gets too wet, add a bit more flour.

Roll the dough out until it's about 1/2 inch thick.  Use cookie cutters to cut into various shapes.

Bake for 40 minutes, or until hard and dry.
