Barking good pumpkin peanut butter cookies

The weekend is almost here and many of us hit the kitchen to stir up something extra good. If you fall into that category, why not stir up some weekend goodies for your dog while you're there. These pumpkin peanut butter cookies are easy to make, and bound to be popular with the dogs.

What you need:

1 can of canned pumpkin (make sure it's not pumpkin pie mix)
0.25 cup peanut butter
2 eggs
0.5 teaspoon cinnamon
2.5 cups flour

If your dog is sensitive to gluten, choose a flour that is not wheat.

What to do: 

Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl, and stir until well blended. The dough will be soft and sticky.

You can roll the dough out on a floured surface and make cookies with cookie cutters, or roll little balls that you can flatten into cookies.

Bake on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper in 350 degrees F.

To make chewy cookies, bake for around 20 minutes. To make crunchy cookies, add 5-10 minutes depending on your oven.

The cookies can be stored for three days. If you want to keep them longer you should freeze them.
