Here’s the recipe for pumpkin dog treats . . .

• 2 tablespoons dry milk
• 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
• water, as needed

- you will need to mix dough with your hands… it is too stiff for an electric mixer

3. Roll dough to ½” thick
4. Cut dough into shapes
5. Place 1″ apart on an ungreased cookie sheet
6. Bake for 20 minutes on one side, then turn over and bake another 20 minutes
