DIY HALLOWEEN DOG TREATS

This week’s focus: getting back doing Vegas Hot (hot yoga).

Good things that happened this week: JR is back from LA!

Challenge yourself: Focus on something that you started recently. Invest at least 30 minutes into whatever it is everyday. At the end of the week, reflect on what you have learned. Go!

Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday! For my second post, I wanted to do something fun and yummy for my furry babies! Note that I’ve never baked dog treats before but as it turns out, it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be, and it was SO MUCH FUN! I found a simple recipe of a peanut butter cookie for dogs and I put my own twist to it since it’s for halloween & all. The cookie itself is a peanut butter & pumpkin pie filling based. The way we shaped the cookies (My friend Marieanne helped me shaped them) are by hand. We forgot to buy some cookie cutters so everything is truly handmade (lol). The icing is also from scratch because I had to make it dog-friendly. Hope you enjoy!

Peanut Butter- Pumpkin Pie Cookies (For Dogs)

Ingredients:

  • 2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons peanut butter (creamy not crunchy)
  • 2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin pie filling from a can

Directions:

  1. Preheat over to 350 Degrees F. Prepare a cookie sheet with foil & butter it up or spray with with non-stick cooking oil.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the eggs, flour, peanut butter, pumpkin pie filling, & the pumpkin pie spice. Mix by hands or hand mixer until fully combined.
  3. Once it’s combined, feel free to make any shape you want from the dough if you don’t have a cookie cutter like we didn’t. If you do, make sure you roll out the dough using a rolling pin down to 1/2 inch and place cookie cutters on it, to cut out shapes.
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown.
  5. Decorate with icing & food coloring.

  1. Mix all the ingredients except the coloring in each bowl.
