Tuesday’s Treat: Pumpkin Crunchers

My Golden Retriever can’t seem to get enough of these tasty Pumpkin Crunchers. Let me know if your furry friend likes them as well!

Pumpkin Crunchers:
2 eggs
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons powdered milk (see note)
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
water

Preheat oven to 350F. In a medium-sized bowl, blend together the eggs and pumpkin. In a second bowl, combine the salt, powdered milk and whole wheat flour. Gradually, add the dry ingredients to the wet by hand (see note) to ensure even distribution. The dough will be dry and stiff at this point. Add enough water to make the dough manageable. 

Roll dough out to approximately 1/2″ thickness. Cut into your favorite shape and place on an ungreased cookie sheet approximately 1″ apart. 

Bake for 20 minutes. Flip over and bake for another 20 minutes. Cool and treat your pooch!

Note: You can substitute buttermilk instead of the powdered dry milk. 
Note: This dough is too dense for an electric mixer (believe me, I’ve tried it) so get a little messy and mix with your hands!
