In my last post I mentioned that I made a new batch of treats for Oreo. I made one of the biscuits into a heart-shape which was his Valentine’s treat, but the others were all in bone-shape. I got this recipe from Marilyn at Simmer Till Done after spotting it on Pinterest and just had to whip up a batch for Oreo.
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
2 tbsp dry milk
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp dried parsley
2 1/2 cups brown rice flour
1. Preheat oven to 350. In large bowl, whisk together eggs and pumpkin to smooth. Stir in dry milk, salt, and dried parsley. Add brown rice flour gradually, combining with spatula or hands to form a stiff, dry dough. Turn out onto lightly floured surface (can use the brown rice flour) and if dough is still rough, briefly knead and press to combine.
2. Roll dough between 1/4 – 1/2″ – depending on your dog’s chew preferences and use biscuit or other shape cutter to punch shapes, gathering and re-rolling scraps as you go. Place shapes on cookie sheet, no greasing or paper necessary. If desired, press fork pattern on biscuits before baking, a quick up-and-down movement with fork, lightly pressing down halfway through dough.
3. Bake 20 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully turn biscuits over, then bake additional 20 minutes. Allow to cool completely on rack before feeding to dog.
Makes approximately 30 biscuits.
* Brown rice flour gives the biscuits crunch and promotes better dog digestion. Many dogs have touchy stomachs or allergies, and do not, like many people I know, tolerate wheat.
