It's Fall! I love fall. I love the smells, the colors, the weather, and especially the food...pumpkin! I think Jenny agrees so we are going to make these yummy Pumpkin Fall Treats.
"Smells good in here."
"Sniff, sniff, sniff...yep, I smell treats!"
First we have to mix all the wet ingredients.
Then mix in the dry ingredients until a dough forms.
Roll out the dough to 1/2 inch thick and cut into shapes.
I think I'll do hearts and bones.
"I do love bones!"
Place on a lined cookie sheet and bake for 40 minutes.
"I knew I'd have to wait."
Jenny, your fall collar goes nice with the color of your fur.
"I'm trying to concentrate here."
"This seems to be taking forever...can't you speed it up?"
"I'm getting tired. Are they done yet?"
They're done, but they are cooling. Do you like the picture I made?
"I would like it better if it was in my mouth!"
Here you go, you can have a piece of one.
"Why just a piece?"
"Slurp! That was very tasty."
"I need another piece, however, I would prefer a whole one."
Here is the recipe:
2 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour
1 cup pumpkin
2 Tablespoons peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix all ingredients together. Roll out dough 1/2 inch thick and cut into shapes. Place on a lined cookie sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes. Let cool and serve. Store in an airtight container.
