Hey guys! How as the long weekend? I hope it was long and fabulous! And I hope you’re as excited as I am for a short week!
First up: I have to admit that I’ve had 5 Pumpkin Spice Lattes since Friday.
It’s a problem.
I’m keeping a tally on the whiteboard in my office so I’ll be sure to keep you updated.
Second: I am having the worst pumpkin baking luck.
I’ve made 3 different things and all 3 failed. Well, to be fair, the first was only a fail because I tried to photograph it in July and it’s so flippin’ hot here that the whipped cream melted literally seconds after I put it on the plate.
So I just ate it all instead of blogging about it.
The other two were total fails.
My first successful pumpkin goodie this year is this Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats recipe.
Hey, the pups are just as excited as I am about pumpkin season!
I was almost tempted to give these a try because they smelled so good when baking. I mean, pumpkin, peanut butter, cinnamon! What’s not to love? My dogs loved them and I’m sure yours will too!

- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree NOT pumpkin pie filling!
- 2 heaping tablespoons peanut butter
- 1 egg
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 1/4 cups flour plus more for rolling
- 1/4 cup water
Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together pumpkin puree, peanut butter, egg, and cinnamon until smooth. Slowly beat in flour and water, alternating between each, until everything is combined.
Turn the dough out onto a well floured surface and roll to about 1/4-inch thick. Cut with desired cookie cutters and transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes. Cool completely before treating your pup!
