Pumpkin Treats

Remember Roasting Pumpkins? I've been using those pumpkins all fall making pancakes for my two-legged kids. But, I finally got to cooking pumpkin treats for any four-legged kids that happen to come Trick-or-Treating this week.

These are really easy to make. They have four ingredients (five if you count water). All you need is:

2 c. of pureed pumpkin
1 tbs. of canola oil
5 c. of flour
1/3 c. dry milk powder 
approx. 1/3 c. water

Step 1: Throw all your ingredients into a bowl.


Step 2: Start by mixing with your spoon. Eventually, this will become difficult and you will need to work it together with your hands. You should end up with a ball that looks something like this: 

If your dough is not forming together, you may want to add a bit more water. Only add SMALL amounts at a time. Remember you can always add more, but you can't take it out! Too much water and you'll have a sticky mess. Don't worry if you have a few crumbs in the bottom of your bowl:

Step 3:  Flour your surface and start rolling out your dough.

Step 4: Take your favorite cookie cutter, cut out shapes and place them on a greased cookie sheet. 

Step 5: Bake at 350 for approx. 10-15 minutes, or until they start to turn golden brown. Once golden, you can either take them out of the oven or turn off the oven and leave them in until the oven cools. Leaving them in the oven will result in a crunchier treat.
