Four-Legged Friends

In the three years of baking for this blog I have never shared a recipe for man's (or woman's) best friend. You know that best friend who always greets you at the door with an excited tail wag or a slobbery kiss. My canine best friend loved to chase cars, be held like a baby (at least he tolerated it), and thought the best seat in the house was right on top of whatever project you were working on. My sweet Jake died a few summers ago, but his sassy sister Stella still keeps my family company and loves on us, especially when we drop human food or give her a treat. 

These dog treats are for any and all special pups in your life, even the ones who leave hair everywhere, steal your laundry, and get in to your food. They are especially for those that snuggle with you at night, really listen when you talk about your problems, and serve as watchdog, no matter how big or small.

I followed a very simple recipe that included some of my favorite flavors, pumpkin and peanut butter. The dough might seem sticky when you try to roll it out, just make sure that you have a well-floured surface, rolling pin, and hands (go ahead and throw some flour on your face to look like a professional baker). Watch your treats carefully in the last minutes of cook time to prevent burning and cool completely before storing. I bagged mine and have been keeping them in the fridge to ensure freshness!

Stella loved her treat and those eyes show clearly that she wasn't letting anyone get near her peanut butter and pumpkin bone. 

Make these treats for all the dogs in your life- they will thank you for it!

Back to people food after today.
