Pumpkin Dog Biscuits

Celebrate Halloween with your furry friends by making homemade pumpkin dog biscuits and packaging them up with adorable Halloween ribbon and colored shred! A cute handmade card completes the package.
Recipe is below.

Fin getting ready to deliver the goodies...

2 eggs
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons dry milk
2 1/2 cups flour (wheat is probably better!)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Blend eggs and pumpkin together, add salt, dry milk and flour.
3. Add water as needed to make dough workable.
4. The dough should be dry and stiff, don't be concerned with crumbs being left in the bowl.
5. You will need to mix this with your hands because it is too stiff for an electric mixer.
6. Roll to 1/2-inch thick.
7. Cut into shapes.
8. Place 1" apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
9. Bake for 20 minutes on one side, then turn over and bake another 20 minutes.
