When I was growing up, my family loved tradition. We had pretty much the same menu for Thanksgiving every year. The night before Thanksgiving, my dad and I would make the pumpkin pies. The only dessert we ever had for Thanksgiving was pumpkin pie.
The first time I attended Thanksgiving at my in-laws, I was bewildered to find they had many different pies, cakes, and a trifle.
Over the years I have added and dropped various menu items to holiday meals to suit our family and guests.
We’ve all seen traditional fall-themed pies, but why not break the mold and show off what you really love? Dogs are family. So we decided to bring that idea to the table this year, both with our desserts and something yummy for the dogs: Vita Bone® Artisan Inspired® Dog Treats.
One of the things I’ve learned in life is that you don’t always have to do things the hard way.
If you’ve ever wondered where the phrase “easy as pie” came from, it was from someone who didn’t have to make the pie crust. Now that you can buy premade crusts, fruit pies are pretty dang easy to make.
While I love to bake, I’m not a professional. I can never figure out how to crimp the edges of the pie crust to look like something Martha would make. So we decided to cover them up with a cute border.
After placing the border, it is time to add the cutouts.
And while I sometimes bake dog treats, Thanksgiving is a day that we are working extra diligently on food for the people. However, I still want my dogs to have something special.
Vita Bone Artisan Inspired Dog Treats smell like stuffing. They are made in the USA with real meat, fruit, and vegetables. I like that they are corn free, soy free, and don’t contain any artificial flavors or by-products.

She loved them!
Vita Bone Treats are available at Walmart, (in-store and online) as well as grocery stores.
And because it just isn’t Thanksgiving to me without a piece of pumpkin pie, we made single serving pumpkin pies too!
To avoid a Pinterest fail, wait until the filling is firm, before adding the crust cut out!
