Today I’m baking Thanksgiving cookies for dogs, specifically pumpkin and cranberry ones. Holidays have me wanting special treats, so why not make some healthy and tasty ones myself? Follow along as I show you how to make these cookies and grab the recipe at the end of the post.
The ingredients are simple. I’m definitely not one to make anything too complicated. You need whole wheat flour, fresh or frozen cranberries, oatmeal, pumpkin, NOT pumpkin pie pumpkin, and unsalted chicken or beef broth.
Ready, Set, Bake!
Grab yourself a big mixing bowl, spoon, and put all five of the ingredients into the bowl.
Mix the ingredients together well, until you can form a ball with the dough in your paws. If it is too dry, add a bit more of the broth, slowly.
Once mixed you will be forming the cookies to bake. Make sure and have a good taste of the dough first to make sure it tastes amazing.
When you are sure the dough tastes perfect, roll up the balls and place them on a lined cookie sheet. They don’t spread while baking, so you can place them close to each other. Beware, if you have a cat, he may be trying to sneak up and steal a ball of cookie dough. Cat bro Bert is trying such a move right now! He missed the memo about these being Thanksgiving cookies for dogs, not cats!
I was hoping the cookies taste just as good when they are on the cookie sheet, so I decided to perform another taste test. Of course, they passed!
Cookies are ready to bake in the oven. I can’t wait until they are done. Thank dog we are having cold weather. I can put them outside for a few minutes and they will be cool enough to taste.
Tasting The Pumpkin Cranberry Cookies
It takes almost an hour for the cookies to bake but it seems like a week. My cookies are out of the oven, cooled and are ready to be eaten. I know they are done as they darken and get crunchy.
Time to test my Thanksgiving cookies for dogs. Oh boy, they are amazing! Get the Pumpkin and Cranberry recipe and make a batch for your favorite pup! The recipe will make about thirty one inch balls. My sisters and I are thankful I dip my paws into cooking now and then because I can actually bake pretty well with simple recipes!
