Jane Seymour was introduced to me through the brilliant Richard Phibbs. As a fellow dog and animal lover I was thrilled to know that she most recently became the the Creative Director at the non-profit animal charity Friends of Animals. In doing so she and her Mom put together this sweet dog biscuit cookbook For the Love of Dog Biscuits. As she informed me, "all proceeds go towards our spay / neuter program that offers low cost certificates to people nationwide. The book consists of 12 delicious and healthy recipes, one for each month in the year, and was written by my mother (the president of the company) and photographed / designed by me." My suggestion to all you dog lovers that knows what tickles your dog's tummies is to order one up and know that it is also the perfect gift for the holidays!!!

Mix the flour, flaxseed meal, pumpkin, water, peanut butter and cinnamon in a bowl. Knead the dough until workable, but the dough should be somewhat dry and stiff. Roll the dough to a ¼” thickness. Use cookie cutters to cut shapes and lay them 1 inch apart on prepared cookie sheets.
Bake at 350 degrees about 25 minutes, until light golden brown. Cool the cookies on a rack before serving. Store in airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer.
