Thanksgiving can be a time to fill up on delicious, decadent food for your dog too! An array of dishes ranging from sweet to savory will tempt most any pet. Most of the items we delight in are dangerous to the one member of the family who may want it all the most: the dog. So instead of hoping that that one Uncle doesn’t pass Fido something that’ll make him sick, try whipping this yummy recipe up for the fur baby sitting under your chair.

3- Roll batter into small balls and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet
