Pumpkin Dog Cookies!

Dogs LOVE pumpkin! (Don't tell 'em it's good for them!) My dog enjoys this time of the year most because my love for all things pumpkin means that she will be reaping the benefits! This year while you're working so hard on your cranberry sauce, stuffing and Tofurky; take a minute to whip up a batch of these easy to make yummy pumpkin dog treats for the dog in your life, who is forever thankful for you, and the love and care they receive.

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup pumpkin (canned)
1 Tblsp. Brn sugar
1/2 Tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 Tsp. Nutmeg
4 Tbls. Crisco
1 egg
1/2 Cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine dry ingredients. Cut in shortening. Beat wet ingredients and combine with flour mix. Drop by tablespoons onto un-greased cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes. Allow to cool, and let your dog enjoy!
Remember to only give a couple a day as pumpkin aids in your doggy's digestion...if you get my meaning!

Happy Fall!
