The national pastime of the month of October is shoving delicious pumpkin into every baked good under the sun, so for dog owners who prefer to make their own dog treats at home instead of buying the processed, commercial stuff, adding pumpkin to dog biscuits should be a no-brainer, especially at this time of year. Here's an example recipe from Allrecipes.com:
PEANUT BUTTER AND PUMPKIN DOG TREATS
Makes 25 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.
