Happy 3.14 or as you may know it as pi day! Pi Day is an annual celebration of the mathematical constant π. Pi Day is observed on March 14 since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three significant figures of π but let’s be honest, math isn’t necessarily our dogs’ favorite form of pie and that’s what we are here for.
In celebration of Pi Day, we have thrown together a dog-friendly pie recipe you and your canine friends can make and enjoy while you celebrate Pi Day!
Step One: The Crust
For the crust you will need:
3/4 cup flour (feel free to use oat flour depending in your dog’s specific dietary needs)
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
3 - 4 Tbsp water
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F
- Spray muffin pan with a dog friendly cooking spray
- Combine flour, water and apple sauce in a bowl
- Form a ball of dough with your mixture
- Roll out the dough
- Cut out circles ideally about 4" in diameter
- Press the circles into the muffin pan
- Bake for about 8 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and let crusts cool in the pan
- Remove crusts from the pan when cool
Step Two: The Filling
Once you have the crust ready the filling is the easy part! For the filling we recommend filling the pie crusts with 100% pure pumpkin (make sure it is 100% pumpkin and not designed for human pies with the spices, sugar and salt included)!
Slowly add the filling to each crust and then move on to our favorite part, the topping!
Step Three: Toppings!
Do you have an anxious dog you're making this pie for? If so, the perfect topping for your dog pie is the recommended amount of ThunderWunders® Calming Chews! Be sure to only use the recommended amount of chews and to not exceed this recommended amount during a 12 hour period.
Now that you have the recipe, get to baking! Be sure to take videos and photos of your dog trying their delicious treat and share it with us on social media so we can show you some love!
