Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Biscuits
Making Dog Biscuits for your furry family member is economical and much safer than purchasing treats at a retail pet outlet.
When making this recipe, use cookie cutters to make fun shapes. Make sure to cut out the proper size Biscuit for your Dog.
If you have a little Dog, the large cookie cutters will probably be too large of a portion for them. I have a small Yorkie Poo so I often use a bottle cap as my cookie cutter….it is the perfect size!
When you make the Biscuits at home, you know that the ingredients are fresh and healthy for your Dog because you purchased them and stored them. With all the recalls lately, it makes sense to just bake treats for your Dog.
Depending on what size cookie cutters you use, you can get several dozen Biscuits. I put mine in several small re-sealable plastic bags and freeze them. That way they stay fresh and I just use one portion at a time.
My Dog LOVES these! I hope yours does too!
