Pumpkin Apple Dog Cookies

We are finally escaping the DOG DAYS OF WINTER! So, let’s treat our dogs in celebration! These dog cookies are great for Pups-giving, a Dog-mitzvah , or just a treat at the end of a long day of digging and fetching. My dog, Orbit, says, “Never have pumpkin and apple ever tasted so good!.” He gives them two paws up!


2 c. Whole wheat flour
2 Eggs
1/2 c. Pure pumpkin
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 Diced apple

Makes 20 3in x 1 1/2in cookies

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Combine the eggs and pumpkin together. Next, add the flour and salt and mix until the dough begins to form (the dough might be slightly dry, the apples will fix that). Last but not least, add the diced apples.

Turn out the dough on to a floured surface and knead a few times. Before rolling out the dough, dust the surface one more time. Roll out the dough to a 1/4 of an inch. Using cookie cutters, cut out the cookies and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake cookies for 20 minutes. Flip over and bake another 20 minutes. Let the cookies completely cool before letting your furry friends enjoy them.
