Puppy Sitting and Another Treat Recipe!

This week we are dog sitting sweet Mabel! She and Oreo are great friends and they make my heart smile to see them together. 🙂

Look at those sweet snuggles! 🙂

Having Mabel here reminded me that I haven’t put up the latest dog treat recipe that I’ve made! Both dogs love them! I found the recipe from A Muse In My Kitchen and she did a great job coming up with this one. It is all of Oreo’s favorites in one recipe! Pumpkin, peanut butter, and flour! He loves them!

Peanut Butter Pumpkin Treats


2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 eggs
1 cup canned pumpkin
2 heaping tbsp peanut butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a stand mixer, mix together flour, eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter, salt, and cinnamon. Add water if needed to make dough workable, but keep in mind it should be dry and stiff {I didn’t need to add water to mine, but this was in the original directions so I’m leaving it in case someone else needs it}

3. Roll dough out to about 1/2″ thickness. Cut into shapes with cookie cutter. Place on greased cookie sheet (or parchment paper covered cookie sheet) and bake about 40 minutes until treats are hard.

Okies, well we are about to head out to eat lunch with one of the guys Christopher mentored last year (he is back from college for the weekend) and then off to spend the day in the sunshine! Until next time, I’ll leave you with this little snapshot from last night:

Love me some puppy snuggles!
