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!
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!
Biscuit’s Pumpkin Biscuits
Yield: 2 dozen 2-inch dog treats
Source: SprinkleBakes original recipe
Prep: 10 minutes, total time 55 minutes
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
Pinch of salt
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
3-4 tablespoons brewed chamomile tea, divided
1 tablespoon honey
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- 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.
- 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.
Sweet! Your pugs are adorable and those cookies are awesome.
I had to do a double-take because I thought you made a typo in the title. Biscuit's biscuits? Haha! Cute dogs!

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?
I love making puppy biscuits – and your puppies are adorable! Happy birthday!
making these for my puppies
Great recipe and super cute puppy pics. I'm going to have to whip up some biscuits for our two Boston Terriers.
Hi Heather. Adorable fellas! Please tell us who BISCUIT'S brother is. I enjoyed your Viemo short. Great job! I could definitely use a slice of that cake.
Just a giant AWWWWWW, for you here. So cute. Such a lucky birthday boy 🙂
Happy bday to your handsome lil guy!
The tea's an interesting ingredient.
These biscuits look yummy! Your dogs are absolutely ADORABLE! Kisses to them.
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. 🙂
He is just too cute! Look how precious he is waiting for his birthday treat. You're such a good mommy. My boys would definitely love these. Thanks for sharing the recipe, I think I'll cook up a batch to gift them for the holidays. I'm sure they will love them!
Congrats to the birthday boy! Your pugs are adorable! I am glad you shared the recipes for those treats. Many puppies are going to love them, I know mine will 🙂
I saw this today and thought about your puppies: http://www.buzzfeed.com/mattbellassai/costumes-that-prove-pugs-always-win-at-halloween
