Pumpkin Cookies

  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
    1/2 cup pumpkin, canned
    1 tablespoon brown sugar
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    4 tablespoons Crisco
    1 whole egg
    1/2 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine flour, cinnamon and nutmeg and cut in shortening. Beat egg with milk and pumpkin and combine with flour, mixing well. Stir until soft dough forms. Drop by tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool and serve.




 Fruit pops


  • 32 oz vanilla yogurt (you can use low fat or non fat)
  • 1 mashed banana or one large jar of baby fruit
  • 2 T. peanut butter
  • 2 T. honey

 Blend all together and freeze in 3 ounce paper or plastic cups. You can microwave just a few seconds before serving to soften a bit, or serve right out of the freezer, and let them lick to their hearts content!

Note: This can also be made with baby food meats instead of the fruit and peanut butter.

 Makes 12 - 3 ounce cups 





  • 1 large apple
  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour



Preheat oven to 300 ° F

Core, slice and mince the apple (use a food processor if you have one). In a large bowl, combine the minced apple bits, honey, water, cinnamon, and oatmeal. Gradually blend in the wheat flour, adding enough to form a stiff dough.

In a small bowl, add 1/8 cup wheat flour. Spoon the dough by rounded teaspoon onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing about 2 inches (5cm) apart. Using the bottom of a glass dipped in the wheat flour (to prevent sticking), flatten each spoonful of dough into a circle. Adjust the size of the drops based on how big a treat you like to feed your dog.

Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and flip each cookie to brown evenly on both sides. Let cool overnight.

Makes about 3 dozen crunchy cookies, depending on how big you make them.

These will last a bit longer if kept in the refrigerator.
