Doggie Birthday Cookies
Make your best friends birthday extra special with homemade cookies!
FOR THE COOKIES
1 cup plain (no sugar) pumpkin puree
2 tablespoons plain (no sugar or salt) peanut butter
2 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
2 large eggs
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
FOR THE FROSTING
1/4 cup cornstarch or tapioca
1/4 cup water
2 teaspoons honey
food coloring and sprinkles (NO XYLITOL)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch, water and honey, adding the water gradually until it is a nice consistency that sticks to the cookie (it should be a little runny). Add food coloring.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, peanut butter, whole-wheat flour, eggs and unsweetened applesauce. Mix together until well-combined.
Gradually add a bit of flour at a time to the dough, so you can handle it without it sticking to your fingers.
Roll out the dough on a well-floured surface to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut out the dough into desired shapes with cookie cutters.
Place the cookies onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for eight minutes or until edges of the cookies are lightly browned.
Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool completely before frosting.
To frost, gently dip the top of each cookie into the cornstarch slurry, immediately add sprinkles and let dry. Store in the freezer.
