What a sweet and lovable face! It was no wonder why I wanted to make her these pumpkin apple peanut butter dog biscuits. She literally goes cuckoo for cocoa puffs over these! I made sure all of these ingredients were safe for her and the other furry friends out there, so don’t worry!
Even though these are for the furry friends out there I do have other desserts you need to check out on my site such as the oatmeal raisin cookies with spanish peanuts and peanut butter.
As long as I can remember I have been a dog lover. I have grown up with dogs and wanted to make sure that my kids had the same opportunity to experience the joy that a dog brings to your home. They get to feel the unconditional love that a dog can give you.
Dogs are there when you cry, laugh and just frustrated with life. It’s the look they give you with there puppy dog eyes or the head they put on your lap to heal your broken heart. Have you ever realized that Dog spelled backwards is God? I don’t think that is coincidental.
The evolution of Ruby
Ruby came to me at the perfect time of my life. We had just lost our Silver lab Bella in October 2017 and our golden retreiver Lucy in July of 2018. Too close if you ask me. My heart was super heavy and I felt that something was just missing. My husband claimed that ” We are never getting another dog”. Well…… Ruby came in October of 2018. All 8 lbs of her charcoal lab self. She made my heart whole again.
Being a Puppy
Don’t get me wrong, getting a puppy means a lot of chewing, digging, letting out, walks and some sleepless nights. Ruby is a digger and you can find her in the backyard digging a hole to China. She has also made Norah’s Ana (frozen) doll an amputee and even swallowed a popsicle stick whole this past summer. But through it all she is wonderful and that is why I take pride in the food and treats that she eats. We get her food from a wonderful place here in Mukwonago called End of the leash.
How to make the Pumpkin apple peanut butter dog biscuits
These biscuits are super easy to make. You have to grate your apple up and set aside. I used a honey crisp apple as that is what I have a ton of in this house. You can use any type as apples are a great source of fiber for your dog.
Roll out dough on a floured flat surface. You will have to knead a little bit because the dough will be a little sticky. Once it is kneaded you roll it out with rolling pin and cut out dog bone shapes with cookie cutter. I also had to make some smaller biscuits for my parents new puppy named Daisy. I had to get creative and since I didn’t have a small round cookie cutter, I used one of the many Advil medicine kids cup I have in the house. It worked perfectly and I knew it would come in handy for something!
Make sure oven is at 350 degrees and I baked them for 20 minutes. Once completely cooled you can store them in an airtight container in fridge for up to 2 months. In a deep freezer for up to 8 months.
