Rocky will seriously do ANYTHING for these yummies. They are quite easy to make, albeit a bit messy. Just remember to use water on your hands while making them and it is simple!
- 1 can pumpkin (not pie filling, just straight plain old pumpkin)
- 8 tbsp. molasses
- 8 tbsp. water
- 4 tbsp. vegetable oil
- 4 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
Mix the first 4 ingredients into bowl.
Add the rest of the ingredients.
Stir, then knead with hands until well blended.
Turn the oven on to 350.
Put a sheet of parchment paper on each of two large cookie sheets.
Using water to wet your hands (otherwise the dough is too sticky to work with!), roll the dough into small balls and place on cookie sheets in rows.
Wet your fingers and press down on each ball.
Put in oven and bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.
After 25 minutes, take the pans out of the oven. Once they cool, they are ready, HOWEVER, they will be soft and chewy. If that is fine, you are finished. If you want them to be hard (so that it works your pup’s teeth as well!), wait for the oven to cool slightly, then put the pans in overnight.
Store in an airtight container. Your pooch will LOVE you for these 😀
