Chloe & Gracie had play date with their cousins, Maddie & Zoe. They’re ready for Howl-oween and a few treats!
I found dog sweaters for Howl-oween at T.J. Maxx back in August. The XS sizes were $5.99 and the medium sizes for Chloe & Gracie were $7.99.
There’s nothing we like better than a few treats!
I found a Halloween cookie stamp cutter set at Michaels. The spring-loaded style cutters makes these treats dog gone easy! Press the cutter into the dough to punch out the shape, then press the plunger to make the impressions and release the dough onto the baking sheet.
Howl-oween Pumpkin Dog Treats
Makes approximately 6 dozen 2-inch treats
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups whole-wheat flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons quick cook oats
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In the bowl of food processor, add applesauce, egg, and pumpkin puree. Pulse to combine.
Add flour, cornmeal, cinnamon and oats to pumpkin mixture and process until dough comes together.
Turn dough onto floured surface and knead and roll out to ¼ inch thick and cut into shapes. (Add additional flour if needed if dough is too sticky). Reroll scraps and repeat.
Place treats on parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake 12 minutes – 15 minutes and remove when treats are firm and edges are starting to brown. Cool on a wire rack and store treats in airtight container.
You can fetch :) a printable recipe, here.
You can use any shape or size cookie cutter to make these treats. If you’re using a larger size cookie cutter, increase the baking time. I always freeze a batch of treats so there are some on hand.
Getting four dogs to pose for the camera is a real trick!
Chloe, Gracie, Zoe & Maddie wish you a Happy Howl-oween with plenty of treats!
