Mini Pumpkin Cheese Cakes for Pups

Pumpkins and pups are a natural combination.  As demonstrated above a pumpkin style hat as modeled by Tubby is a winning look, and pumpkin in a pups food is a healthy treat.  I wrote in this blog post about how I often add pumpkin to my dogs food.  While fresh pumpkin is the healthiest option canned pumpkins ease makes it a natural choice for treats.  With Thanks Giving just around the corner I decided to say thank you to my dogs with some Pumpkin Cheese Cake Treats.

Mini Pumpkin Cheese Cakes for Pups



1 can pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling
8 ounces low fat cream cheese at room temperature
1/4 cup fat free sour cream
1 tbsp honey
3 tbsp coconut flour
1 egg, beaten
1 package Pumpkin flavored dog cookies, such as Plato Turkey and Chicken Treats
cupcake tin liners

Preeheat the oven to 350.  Stir all the ingredients, except the cookies, together until smoothly combined.  You might want to use an electric mixer but I did it by hand.  Line a cup cake with paper liners and put one pumpkin cookie in the bottom of each liner.  Spoon the pumpkin cheese cake mixture over the cookies and bake 25 minutes, until slightly firmed but still jiggly.  Cool and serve.

Oh and we have one announcement to make.  We sincerely hope we don't offend anyone and  mom absolutely loves all of blogville, she considers some blog ville friends better friends then non computer ones.   However, in an effort to save some cash and make Daddy happy, it was his request, we are opting out of sending cards this year.  As there are so many of us and we use shutterfly our cards are pretty pricey and it will be hard to swing the expense this year.   So please please don't feel you need to send us a card, we will feel bad if we get cards and can't reciprocate.  We hope no one is angry with us over this as we love you all.

  1. They looks very tasty. No worries with the cards. We have done some via post and the rest will be via email as it is very expensive re postage here. Have a terrific Tuesday.

    Seriously with the cards?! I haven't sent out Christmas cards in years. Like you said, the expense is outrageous. No worries.

  9. I never seem to see tinned pumpkin in the shops over here. I would love to make them for our dogs. We are sending e-cards this year, we simply haven't got any money with Bridge's vet bills.

    Don't worry about cards. We send them because we like to. Though we like getting them, we don't worry about who has not sent one.
