What you’ll need:
✔ 1/2 cup of canned pumpkin (not pumpkin-pie mix)
✔ ¼ cup peanut butter (with no Xylitol in ingredients)
✔ 1 egg
✔ 2 to 21/2 cups whole wheat flour
✔ Strawberry or raspberry jam/jelly
(with no sugar or artificial sweeteners added)
✔ Unsalted peanuts
These spooky treats are a favorite at our annual Halloween party, and with a dog-friendly base, the dogs can now howl in Halloween delight, too.
1 In a mixer or with a hand blender, blend pumpkin, peanut butter and egg.
2 Add in flour slowly. You want your mixture to be smooth and well-mixed. Add more or less flour to get your desired consistency.
3 Take out a piece of dough and roll into a small ½-inch ball.
4 Stretch into a long finger shape, adding dents to mimic the shape of a human finger.
5 Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
6 When cookies are cool, dab on a little jelly to one end, and top it with half a peanut.
