Not only am I getting ready for lots of company arriving to spend Christmas with us but Riley, my daughter’s dog will also be coming. Riley lived with us for two years while my daughter and her husband lived overseas, and she has a very special place in our heart.

Riley, the Boston Terrier

I figured she needed to be pampered while she was here, so making dog treats was on my “to do” list!

Wheat berries were freshly ground to provide the flour. The pumpkins had been harvested from our garden and I had just cooked them to make some pumpkin pies and bread.  This should be the perfect treat for Riley!

Pumpkin Dog Treats

2 ½ cups whole wheat flour
2 eggs
½ cup pureed pumpkin
2 Tbsp peanut butter
½ tsp salt
½ tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk together the flour, eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter, salt and cinnamon in a bowl.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl.

Add water as needed to help make the dough workable, but the dough should be dry and stiff.

Dough ready to roll out.

Roll the dough until it is ½ inch thick. Cut into ½ inch pieces. I used my special cookie cutters!

Rolling out the dog treats.

Bake in a preheated oven until hard, about 40 minutes. They smell amazingly good as they are baking!
