Holiday Dog Treats


A friend recommended I make a pumpkin recipe for doggie treats for my grandpups! So this will be their Christmas Treat! Makes several dozen and I'll have a stash on hand whenever they come to visit.





Pumpkin Dog Treats
Sassie
1 can non-seasoned mashed pumpkin
4 Tabs. molasses
4 Tabs. water or beef or chicken broth
2 Tabs. vegetable oil
3 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup parsley flakes
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon (optional)


Also optional: 1/4 cup sesame seeds, or rolled oats or grated carrot.


Preheat oven to 350.
Blend all wet ingredients. Add dry ingredients and stir until a soft dough forms. Extra flour may to added to make dough firm enough. Grab by teaspoonfuls and roll into balls.

Drop onto a cookie sheet and flatten with a fork or roll into 1/4 inch thick dough and form shapes with small cookie cutters. (I used hearts!)

Bake until hard (approximately 25 min.). If wanting them a bit crispier, just turn off oven and let cool overnight.  They vacuum seal or freeze well
