So, let's take this blog way into left field, and I'll show you one of my favorite and most SIMPLE!!!!! horse cookie recipes for fall.
Here's the rundown...
Pumpkin Cinnamon Horse Cookie Recipe
1/2 can of pumpkin
1 tbsp cinnamon
2 1/4 cups of oats
1/4 cup of molasses
1/2 cup of brown sugar
|Look at that arrangement!|
Not too bad, right?
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees, and grease a cookie sheet or two, if you need to. Most of them these days are nonstick. (I sound like I've been alive forever)
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, molasses, and pumpkin. Mix until blended.
|Yummy brown sugar!|
|Gooey molasses...and an awkward sandcastle of brown sugar!|
|I should have bought stock in this company this year...|
|This looks GREEEAAAAT.|
|Betcha can't wait to touch THIS with your hands.|
3. Roll into small balls with your hands. I recommend about 1" in diameter balls for some normal-sized treats. As you go, place these balls on the cookie sheets. They do not rise or spread or anything, so you can place them as close to each other as 1 1/2 inches or so...
|I should have been a hand model.|
|Just in case you didn't know how to put them on the cookie sheet.|
|Yes, I have the cutest oven in the world.|
Before they cool and before you remove them from the cookie sheet, sprinkle the tops of them evenly with the cinnamon.
This recipe as it is above, makes about 36-38 horse treats at this size. Good enough for plenty for your horses, and to share with the barn girls! Helping you earn brownie points, here.
