So today I ventured to make gluten-free pumpkin dog treats. I got the recipe from this website http://simplysugarandglutenfree.com/gluten-free-pumpkin-dog-biscuits/ .
So I mixed everything today, rolled out my dough (okay I didn’t roll it…I didn’t have my rolling pin so I pressed it with my hands…not as accurate yes). Next I went to cut it and realized I didn’t have any of my cookie cutters (we don’t have much anymore, we are trying to sell the house-everything is in storage…even cookie cutters and rollers). Anyways, I cut them into squares and triangles and finished one tray only to realize I sprayed cooking spray on it WITH FLOUR. Yikes! Needless to say that batch will go to my sister’s dog. I left the treats in the oven for 20 minutes, a little too long for my oven so next time I will only do 15. Next I flipped them and left them in for 15 minutes.
I took them out and had Oreo spin around. I rewarded her with the treat. THE MOMENT OF TRUTH. Will she like the treats I worked on? Will it be worth it? YES!! First she put it on the ground and nosed it (she does this when something is new), next she ate it and came back for more! Good! I was buying treats that I knew for sure were gluten-free (some bigger brands claim to be gluten-free but in fact are not), but it was very expensive, so I decided to make my own. If your dog has a gluten or wheat allergy I recommend this recipe…the dogs love the pumpkin!
