These homemade dog biscuits were a major hit with all the 4-legged taste-testers who tried them. Plus, they let your dog get in on the fall pumpkin fever. Some spices are dangerous to dogs. Avoid substitutions in this recipe.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Position racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Whisk eggs, peanut butter, pumpkin and water in a large bowl. Add flour, cinnamon, ginger and salt; stir to combine. Transfer to a lightly floured surface and knead until the dough comes together, about 1 minute.

  • Divide the dough into 4 equal portions and lightly dust both sides with flour. Roll one piece of dough into an 8-inch circle about 1/4 inch thick, dusting with more flour as necessary to keep it from sticking. Cut out biscuits with a 4-inch dog bone cookie cutter. Transfer to a prepared pan, spacing about 1/2 inch apart. Shape all the scraps back into a disk and reroll. Continue to cut biscuits until no dough remains.

  • Bake the biscuits until the edges are golden brown, about 15 minutes. Let cool on the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with the remaining dough.


To make ahead: Store at room temperature for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 3 months.

Equipment: Parchment paper, 4-inch dog-bone cookie cutters

I made these much smaller and used fondant cookie cutters to create tiny treats to be used for training. They are adorable! Perfect for holiday gift bags for the dogs in your life. The dogs like them for sure I only wish they were a bit more "crunchy" as they are kind of soft despite being fully baked. Also the photo used with this recipe is not accurate for the finished color. They are regular "kibble brown" and not orange as pictured. Read More

My dog likes all food (except beets and black beans apparently) so it feels a little like cheating to give these 5 stars but it was nice for me to give her a homemade treat! I kept mine in the freezer so they would last longer. Read More
