Pumpkin Dog Treats-Easy and Frugal!



I love these dog treats (so does my pup).  I found the recipe in a Rachel Ray magazine a few months ago.  It is really simple, and very inexpensive.  Here's how you make them:

You will need:

2 Eggs
1/2 cup pure canned pumpkin (or make your own pumpkin puree)
2 TBS dry milk powder* 
2 1/2 cups flour

*instead of buying in a large container, buy just what you need from the bulk section at Winco...it will only cost you around $.25



Stir together eggs, pumpkin, and dry milk powder.  Add in the flour.  Mix well, using small amounts of water to help it stick together (about 2-3 teaspoons).

Roll out the dough with a rolling pin to about 1/4"-1/2" thickness.  Cut into shapes using a cookie cutter.  We use a small heart shape, but these bone-shaped cookie cutters are absolutely adorable!

Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees F.  Turn the treats over, and bake for another 20 minutes, or until treats are thoroughly cooked and firm.



Let cool.  We keep ours in a Ziploc bag in the fridge to maintain freshness (these can go bad if not kept in the fridge).

Enjoy!
