Fido's Tips

  • Make sure that the pumpkin puree is 100% pumpkin, not the one you use for pumpkin pie.
  • Much as we dogs love sugar, they are not good for us, so use unsweetened and unsalted peanut butter.
  • If the dough is a bit too sticky to handle, let it sit in the fridge for 15 minutes or so.
