Santa Paws Cookies

Yummy Pumpkin Cookies Just for Your Miniature Schnauzer

Pumpkin Cookies preheat over to 325 degrees

1/2 can real pumpkin
2 cups quick oats
1/4 cup water
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp honey

1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl thoroughly

2. Lightly spray cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray

3. Scoop out tablespoon sizes using a fork. Place on cookie sheet and lightly mash down each one.

4. Bake at 325 degrees for 12 minutes

5. Let cool before serving.

Yields about 50 cookies. Keep stored in your refrigerator or freezer.

note: Since these are my very own recipes, you will find I rarely use flour, margarine, oils, etc... The cookies, meals, and other recipes I provide to you may not look that pretty, but boy oh boy are they yummy & much better for your Schnauzer.

Dog treat recipe books make great presents!
