Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cookies for Dogs

It's Tuesday! I am participating in the Tasty Tuesday blog hop this week. I am joining some other fine folks that you will see below. Please make sure to stop by their sites to see what they are cooking up today. It will make your pets tummy happy and tail wag with delight. 

Chef Carma- Christmas Season Edition
 As you see, I have my Christmas cooking outfit on. Its the magical time of the year when all good puppies and kitties look forward to Santa Paws visiting. I look forward to all the yummy goodies that come my way. 

 I want to remind you that with all those extra treats, you need extra exercise. This goes for humans and pets. Parents, get those leashes out and take an extra walk or a longer with your dogs, maybe play some chase inside the house or if you have a treadmill; you can put it on the lowest speed and let your dog "take a walk" inside. Extra pounds are hard on the heart and body so lets stay healthy!! Walking with the family after dinner is a family friendly activity that helps to keep the family bonded and its so dog gone fun! 

For this treat, I had the help of my sissy Sarah. Since I am not allowed to use the stove or put my paws in the bowls, I need the help of a human. We got this recipe from a recipe book that we recieved from WiggleButts Go Hollywoof. You can click the blue link to see what WiggleButts was all about. 

Ma didn't know what to do with our Halloween pumpkin. We don't carve our pumpkin so we had a whole pumpkin to do something with. Since guinea pigs love pumpkin seeds , ma took all the seeds out and air dried them. She followed up with baking them in the oven at a 150 degrees for an hour. Cinnamon, our guinea pig LOVES them. Ma cut all the insides out, put them in a large pan with a 1/2 cup of water and simmered it on the stove until it turned to a pureed mush. She stored it in containers to use later. This is later.......
On to my cooking adventure......


Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cookies for pets


Ingredients needed:
1/2 Cup Pumpkin
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
2 eggs
2 Cups Flour (we used unbleached whole wheat flour) 
1 assistant 
1 large bowl
We sprayed our baking sheet with Olive oil spray but we found that if you use a non stick pan you can skip this step

Preheat oven to 350
Put all ingredients in the bowl and mix throughly together. You may have to add a little flour to make the dough workable. 
Put some flour on the area or use wax paper where you will be rolling out the dough. Roll out dough to 1/2 inch thick and cut with cookie cutters. If you don't have cookie cutters, you can use a glass to cut the dough into circles. 
Bake for  20-25 minutes. You want them to be golden brown. They will be soft when they come out but as they cool they became crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. 
Ours came out a little thick so I would recommend that you roll them out a little thinner like 1/4th inch instead of 1/2 inch. 


Allow to cool and serve. 
Sissy also put some of the leftover batter in our silicone heart freezer trays and she froze it. Jenny Sue loves the frozen version as much as the baked cookies. 

I do not like pumpkin or peanut butter so I passed on eating these. Jenny Sue was happy about that because that meant there were more for her to enjoy. BOL! 
Cinnamon even liked them! He gets a tiny bit of a cookie at night. 

Does your pets like pumpkin and peanut butter? 
Do you think they would like these? 

I hope you enjoyed this segment of "Cooking with Carma"
Have a tail wagging Tuesday!!! 

*You can also use canned pumpkin that can be purchased at most pet stores.We have found it at PetSmart before. Do not use pumpkin pie filling."
