Pumpkin Oat Cookies!

Tail wags, dear readers - it's me, Stormy!  Mom made us some Pumpkin Oat Cookies over the weekend.  They are mighty tasty, so I thought I'd post the recipe for all of you.  I'll link to this in the sidebar, under our Secret Family Recipes, so your biped can come back to this numerous times and make batch after batch after batch of cookies for you!  Ready to start?  Let's head to the kitchen and I'll show you how we made them!

Have your biped gather the following ingredients:

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 eggs
1 cup of pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling, just pumpkin!)
2-4 Tablespoons peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup old-fashioned oats

Your biped needs to mix that all real well in a large bowl; our mom used the electric hand mixer but you don't have to.

At this point, you need to inspect your biped's work. Dave and I were on hand.

"Hold it a little lower, please..."
"Maybe if I sit like a good boy, I'll get some dough!"

Dave gave it his thumbs up err... approval, but I needed to inspect it a bit closer.

"Yeah... that smells wonderful!"

I gave Mom the go-ahead and she got busy with the next stages.

Oh... wait.  You might be wondering where Zimmie was.  Well ... umm ... he was busy in another part of the house.

"Zzzzzz......"

Well, maybe not so much busy as otherwise engaged.

Now your biped needs to get rolling!  Have her or him roll the dough out to 1/8", cut out with really cool cookie cutters, then move them to baking sheets. Bake at 350℉ for 20-30 minutes, or until crispy.  Cool cookies on cooling racks.

Next comes the part Zim was resting up for - the taste-testing!!!

Trust me when I say they are delicious! They're great "as is", but you might notice I have a spread on mine. I need extra calories, so I got a bunch of the cookies smeared with a tasty, high-calorie supplement called NutriCal. Mmmm, what a great combo!

OK, I know you want a close-up of the cookies. Are you ready?

Mega-tasty! These are for pups, but I think some of my kit-cat friends might like them, too. And bipeds can try them... but they aren't sweet or anything, so they probably won't steal too many of your treats!

Now, everyone give your bipeds your best Sad-Eyes Look so you can try this recipe! Good luck and let me know if you give them a go!

Tail wags,
Storms
