Perfect for older dogs or dogs with dental issues. They are also low fat, making them a great treat for less active dogs.

This is a soft dough.

It is very easy to work with and also quite forgiving. These soft pumpkin treats will puff up a bit when they are baked.


3 1/2 cups flour

1 egg

1 cup pumpkin purée

 1/2 cup applesauce

PREP TIME:  5 minutes BAKE TIME:  18 minutes TOTAL TIME:  23 minutes

In a medium bowl, you’ll mix the applesauce, pumpkin and egg together.  Then stir in the flour until it forms a soft dough.

Just a bit of mixing, rolling out and cutting cute dog bone shapes.  They are the easiest cookies you’ll ever make.

These soft pumpkin treats will puff up a bit when they are baked and they stay soft. The applesauce helps to make them moist and just a touch sweet.

These pumpkin dog treats make great homemade gifts too.  Make small dog treat bags to give away to friends and neighbors who have dogs!
