Soft pumpkin apple dog treats
Loved by all four of my Schnauzers

PREP TIME: 5 minutes BAKE TIME: 25 minutes TOTAL TIME: 30 minutes

. 4 cups flour
. 4 tsp baking powder
. 1 cup pumpkin purée (not canned pumpkin pie filling)
. 1 egg
. 1/4 cup applesauce unsweet
. 2 finely chopped or grated apples

1. Preheat oven to 350°F
2. In a medium bowl, stir egg, applesauce and pumpkin together. Add flour and mix until all the flour is incorporated add apples.
3. Dust the counter with flour and knead the dough a few times to make sure it is uniform.
4. Lightly flour a rolling pin, then roll out dough to approximately 1/8" and cut out treats.
5. Place on a baking sheet and bake for approximately 25 minutes. Cool completely before giving to your fur baby!

I used a 2" cookie cutter because my dogs are small. If you use a larger cutter to make treats for a larger dog, you will need to increase baking time and the yield will be less than 85.

Make sure you buy 100% pumpkin purée and not pumpkin pie filling. Check the can carefully!

Apple sauce should be plain, no added sugar. Ingredients should be apples, water, vitamin C.

These pumpkin treats are perishable - there are no preservatives. After a few days on the counter in an airtight container, you should refrigerate them for up to a couple weeks.

If the dough is too sticky to roll out, add a bit of extra flour until you can roll it out easily. If it is a humid day, you may have to add more flour.
