Holl-oween Pup-kin' Biscuits

Healthy Howl-oween treats for your Pups!

My dogs love food!!!! (what dog doesn't!)
  Our Trixie especially use to be that I couldn't even move in my bed after 5am because she would think it was time to get up and eat.  I actually think she would lay in her bed and wait for my husband or myself to move. Once we moved she would start bugging us to get up. Now that she is almost 15, she can't hear as good and goes into a much deeper sleep so it's not so much of an issue anymore. 

I enjoy making healthy treats for my dogs and they love them too!  
Especially warm out of the oven.

Rachel Ray has Doggy recipes every month in her magazine and I often try them.

This month it was these...Pup-kin Biscuits.
Super easy!  

All you will need is:

2 eggs
1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
2 tbsp. dry milk powder
2 1/2 cups of whole wheat or white flour
and a little time.

 Preheat oven to 350.

In a bowl mix together the above ingredients; add 2 tbls. water, or enough so that the dough just comes togehter.

Roll dough on slightly floured surface (1/2 inch thick).
cut into shapes.

Place biscuits 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 20 mins, then flip over and bake another 20 mins
(I only did about 12 mins on each side, it seems that, that's all they needed ).

*I basted mine with egg for a shinny look.

I doubled the batch and they've held up well without spoiling for two weeks and counting.    

I hope you pups like them as much as mine did!
