Biscuit’s Pumpkin Biscuits

Hi friends! I’m updating with a quick little post to wish my best buddy Biscuit a Happy Birthday! He’s the most funny, spirited, mischievous little dog I’ve ever had. Everything he does borders on ridiculous! He definitely helps me to not take life too seriously, and I appreciate that.

I like to keep wholesome treats on hand for the pups, and these pumpkin biscuits are just that – plus they’re easy-peasy to make. The honey glaze I brush on them during baking makes them extra tasty, and the boys always scarf them down!

Nerds.

I use chamomile tea in this recipe, but you could substitute hot water if you don’t have any tea on hand. You’ll only use a few tablespoons, but I like to brew a 12 oz. cup anyway. That means I get to enjoy the remaining tea while making the treats.

Well, we’re off to have a little more backyard playtime in the cool fall air. Happy 5th birthday to my little sweater-wearing clown!

Yield: 2 dozen 2-inch dog treats

Source: SprinkleBakes original recipe

Prep: 10 minutes, total time 55 minutes

1/2 cup pumpkin puree

3 eggs

Pinch of salt

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

3-4 tablespoons brewed chamomile tea, divided

1 tablespoon honey

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Place pumpkin puree, 2 eggs and pinch of salt in a large bowl. Mix with an electric hand mixer on low speed until combined. Add the flour and mix again on low speed. Mixture will be very dry and crumbly. Add brewed chamomile tea 1 tablespoon at a time and beat on low speed until a non-sticky workable dough is formed. Knead until all the flour has been absorbed. Roll into a ball and place on a sheet of parchment paper; flatten dough slightly with hands. Cover dough with another sheet of parchment and roll to 1/2-inch thickness. Remove top sheet of parchment and cut out biscuits with a cookie cutter. Transfer cut-outs to a parchment lined baking sheet.
  3. Beat remaining egg, 1 tablespoon chamomile tea and 1 tablespoon honey together in a small bowl. Brush mixture onto the cut-outs using a pastry brush. Bake treats for 20 minutes. Brush again with honey glaze and bake for an additional 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack. Allow biscuits to cool completely before treating your buddy.

Note:  Not into cookie cutters? A knife or pizza cutter may be used to cut the dough into squares before baking.

Hi, lovely recipe for our little friends, I was just wondering whether you have a recipe for pumpkin puree as I like in the UK and pumpkin puree isn't so easy to find?

Hi Kylie, you can find my pumpkin roasting recipe here: http://www.sprinklebakes.com/2009/11/pumpkin-rolls-and-shortages.html – the pumpkin will be so soft you'll probably just be able to mash it with a fork. No pureeing necessary!

Hi Marcee – that's Churro! He's our rescue pug. We've had him for about 2 1/2 years. 🙂
