Zoe’s Pumpkin Spice Dog CookiesMakes about 60 Small Cookies

2 1/4 cups rice flour
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

3/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/8 cup cold milk or just enough to make the dough stickPreheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray two cookie sheets with oil or cooking spray.

Mix eggs and pumpkin together until smooth. Add flour to pumpkin mixture in two batches, stirring with a wooden spoon or spatula. Add milk, a teaspoon or two at a time until the dough comes together – The dough is rather dry, so you need to use your hands to pull it together.
Roll dough out on lightly floured surface until it’s 1/4 inch thick. Cut biscuits using desired cookie cutter.
Place biscuits on prepared baking sheets.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the top of the biscuit has dried out completely. Remove tray from oven and flip biscuits over. Turn off oven and let cookies rest there for approximately 20-30 minutes, or until completely dry throughout. (Cooking times will be longer for larger cookies).
Cool biscuits cool on wire racks. Store in an airtight container.
