Today is my little Kirby's 6 month birthday! I can't believe he's already that old (I know he's still a baby but still). It doesn't seem that long ago when I could hold him with one hand and he was just a little ball of rolly polly skin and wrinkles. Now he's a big 15 pound boy. I make him treats all the time but wanted to make him something special today and found this peanut butter and pumpkin recipe. Welp, big surprise, he loves him. But I guess he's a pug and he loves anything he can eat...my little fatty. I had these little Halloween cookie cutters and just HAD to use them. I love anytime when I can be festive :)
Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Treats
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
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.
Bake in preheated oven until hard, about 40 minutes.
I couldn't help myself...
He's a banana split!
So he looks a little miserable. I planned to get him a Kirby Puckett jersey (and still do) for Halloween but I saw this at Target and started giggling right there...
I just HAD to...don't worry, he got a few extra treats for this. 0:)
