Default Mad Baking Skillz

I made Olive some treats. Needless to say, they were a huge hit.
She is in love.

Here's the recipe. I don't remember where I found it :[
PB & PUMPKIN DOG TREATS

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (or brown rice flour, for wheat allergies! Thanks, Kelly!)
2 eggs
1 cup canned pumpkin
3 tablespoons peanut butter (I may have added a teaspoon more!)
1/2 teaspoon salt (I only used about 5-6 quick shakes)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
optional: 3/4 cup rolled oats (I used exactly this, but may use sliiiightly less next time)

1. Preheat oven to 350f (176c)
2. Whisk everything, adding 1 tbsp water at a time to keep dough pliable, but not moist. (Be veeeery careful! You can add a little more flour if you over-do it with the water, though)
3. Roll (or knead) out to 1/2in (1.3cm) thick and cut into desired shapes, put on cookie sheet in oven for 30-40 min (I put foil down first, but they weren't even close to sticky, so I guess it doesn't matter!)

About 10 minutes in, I forked the treats along the center for looks/more even baking. Worked pretty well! Also, I gave up on the whisking, handed my husband my wedding ring and kneaded it with my hands. Much more effective. When they're done, they should be just ever so slightly spongey. Not squishy, not crunchy...spongey.

I made a giant bone out of whatever didn't fit in the first batch. She loved it. For her 1st birthday (in 3 months!), I'm thinking I'll make the bone again and add some dog-friendly icing (so it looks like a real bone) So excited!

Here is how they were received:

Yum yum! My favorite is the pic where she's mid-air and her ears are flying - LOL!

I made these for Benson today. I used a whole can of pumpkin and made loads. He's just come in from a day at the vets and he went straight to the tub and sat looking up at them. He's devoured a few of them as medicine. He'd recommend them to anyone.

So how long exactly did the Bone last? She is such a pretty girl, I can imagine her daintily nibbling along the edges, but somehow I think the reality of it was a bit different.

Just a beautiful little Basset...I think she probably didn't eat that treat as daintily as she looks though, lol.

I think we'll make these tonight too in hopes of a flying ear shot. I should be practicing for Thanksgiving, but this will be more fun & PB never complains about my cooking. So cute! Thanks for the recipe.
