So… for our first Tasty Tuesday, we want to share the Peanut Butter Pumpkin Cookies that we made for Sofie’s birthday this year.  We found the recipe somewhere on the internet (can’t find the link, sorry) and then improvised the rest.  They were yummy good, and since Sofie doesn’t like cookies very much I needed to make sure they were peanut buttery and extra special.

Ingredients for about 25 cookies

  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Whisk together the flour, eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl. Add water as needed to help make the dough workable, but the dough should be dry and stiff. Roll the dough into a 1/2-inch-thick roll. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until hard, about 40 minutes.

I cut them into stars.  The girls thought they were dog yummy!

7.1.12 Peanut Butter Bones

I like to fill the dogs marrow bones with peanut butter in the morning to keep them busy while I am having breakfast.  I keep the peanut butter in the refrigerator, so that it is harder, and knife it into both sides of the bone.  This keeps them busy for about 10 minutes if I am lucky.  I like to watch the creative ways they try to get the peanut butter out of the holes.  I have tried many other things in the bones: expensive Kong filler stuff (blah! and not much for the price), Cheese Wiz (to many chemicals and sugar and salt – I realized that I wouldn’t eat it, so why would I give it to them). whipped cream (it disappeared into the air), processed cheese pressed in to the hole (really hard to do and harder for them to get out (actually almost impossible for Sofie)).  In the end, there is nothing that replaces good old peanut butter. They sure do enjoy those peanut butter bones.
