- Pour in the water and mix on low, to medium low, until thoroughly combined.
- Turn the dough onto a floured surface, and hand knead the dough until no longer sticky.
- Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness and cut into shapes with your favorite dog cookie cutters.

- Place the cookies on the baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes.
- Turn the oven off and leave in for another 30 minutes.
- Cool completely on a wire rack before serving.
Storing - This recipe, as well as other recipes for pet treats, can be stored for later enjoyment. Since they are baked quite hard, you can keep them in an air tight container for approximately 2 weeks. If you bake a softer pumpkin pie biscuit, you can store them in the refrigerator for 4 weeks, and in the freezer for 6 months.
Yield - You will get around 100 cookies using a small 1 inch cookie cutter. You most likely will get two baking sheets full of cookies, no matter what size cookie cutter you use.
