Warning: the following post contains A LOT of pictures.
So not only are my coworkers and Brian benefiting from my latest baking-with-pumpkin spree, even Bentley got lucky today and got some homemade pumpkin treats as well!
Can’t forget my little guy, right?
I figured I should get all the baking I want to get done here the next few weeks, since once my internship goes into full swing, who knows when I’m going to be able to bake “just because”?
I have to say though, although I’m a little nervous and anxious about starting this internship, the anxiousness is also mixed with
a little bit a lot of excitement. I’m excited to start utilizing all the skills I’ve learned in class into everyday practice and to see how much I’ve learned (and retained) within the past two years. And it also means I’m that much closer to graduating! Wish me luck – I hope I make everyone proud :)
These biscuits do not require any special ingredients (other than the pumpkin), and I bet you have most of them in your cupboards already! They was inspired by a very simple biscuit recipe I used to make for Bentley, but instead of adding bananas, I substituted them with pumpkin puree instead – you know, ever since Bentley discovered the yummy goodness of canned pumpkin a few weeks ago, he’s just as big of a fan of it as I am.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour (or you can use whole wheat flour)
- 1 large egg
- 1/8 cup all natural creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- A pinch of salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
- Add all the ingredients into a mixing bowl, whisk until thoroughly combined.
- Transfer dough onto a floured surface. Using a rolling pin, roll dough out until it's about 1/2" thick.
- Cut into desired shapes and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until biscuits are dry and hard. Transfer to wired cooling rack and let cool. Store in airtight container for 7 days.
These are way healthier and cheaper than buying those store-bought doggie treats! No preservatives, no artificial flavors. They’re made with all natural ingredients that you can pronounce and you can feel good about giving them to your favorite pup.. or pups :)
Bentley had to check them out during my photoshoot session…
“I’m gonna try again….”
“YESSSS!! I got one!!”
“Mwahahahahaha…. I’m sneaky. Mommy didn’t even notice.”
