Mollys’ Barking Bakes, Pumpkin Howl-A-Ween Bites!

Molly The Wallys' Barking Bakes for Halloween 1

Introducing Mollys’ Barking Bakes. Today we give you Pumpkin Howl-A-Ween Bites!

Molly The Wallys' Barking Bakes for Halloween 2

You will need the following for your Halloween treat ........


2 1/2 cups wholemeal or whole wheat flour
1/2 cup pumpkin puree un-spiced
1/2 cup peanut butter crunchy is best
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
Optional extras bacon, chicken or whatever goodies take your fancy like eye of newt, wing of bat or tongue of squirrel.
1/2 cup water as needed

For the trick versions just add some Scotch Bonnet Chillies. No, only joking!

Make sure your paws are clean. Find a large mixing bowl and measuring cup. You will need a big mixing spoon too.

 Measure out the ingredients carefully.

Mix all your ingredients except the water. Stir, stir and stir and repeat after me.....

Double, double toil and trouble,
Hairy stubble and tummy rumble.

Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake,
Eye of newt, and toe of rat,
Wool of bat, and tongue of cat,
Adder’s fork, and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg, and howlet’s wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble

Double, double toil and trouble,
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

Add the water sparingly and the amount will depend on the amount of oil in your peanut butter. You may need the entire 1/2 cup or not. Try not to make a mess.

 The dough should turn out sticky but not dry. If it’s too sticky you need a little more flour.

Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface. Use a rolling pin or anything handy like a spare foot to flatten out the cookie dough and then use cookie cutters to make shapes. Cut the treats without cutting yourself and placed them on a greased cookie sheet.

Next place the treats in a preheated 350 degree oven Gas mark 5. Bake for about 20 minutes or depending on thickness. Guard the oven at all times and don’t let anyone try and gain access to these wonderful morsels. Go get cleaned up in the bathroom while you wait for the cookies to cool down.

Bandage any ouchies you may have incurred during cooking.

Remember they are all YOURS but maybe you could share a few out.
