Bakin’ for Halloween With King Teddy


Greetings from the Kitchen at Castle Baconia – I am your King and I am BAKING for you for Halloween!

To continue my October baking schedule, I have another TREAT for Halloween for you.   This one is yummy for breakfast but as far as the Royal Mom and I are concerned, scones are wonderful for ANY TIME OF DAY…………..try one with a pumpkin spiced latte’ for instance!  Is there such a thing as too much pumpkin?   Nah…..we sure don’t think so!

Coffee Shop Pumpkin Scones


  • To Make Scones:
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter
  • 3 tablespoons shortening
  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons half-and-half  (or cream or even MILK works!)



  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Mix flour, white sugar, baking powder, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger together in a large bowl; cut in butter and shortening using a pastry cutter or 2 knives until mixture is crumbly.
  3. Mix pumpkin, egg, and half-and-half together in a separate bowl; stir into flour mixture just until combined. Turn dough onto a floured work surface and shape into a 1/2-inch-thick square. Cut dough into pizza-like wedges and arrange on the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer scones to a wire rack to cool.
  5. Whisk confectioners’ sugar, milk, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice together in a bowl; drizzle over scones.

Now you have to admit – this sounds DREAMY right?    I like to think that Fall is made for pleasant dreams…………cooler weather……….fires in the fireplace……….leaves falling……….now if you are in a part oft he world where you’re not having this kind of weather – well – PRETEND YOU ARE AND ENJOY A SCONE.

Happy Pre-Ween!!!   Your King…………..

  1. Wow, Teddy, this definitely sounds like another winner. Our mom loves scones. She’s not big on glaze, so would probably leave that off, but they sound just as yummy without. Thanks for continuing to provide us with terrific, nommy recipes. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer


    • HAHAHAHA….well said Cupcake. They are a lot of work to make but oh so yum. Mom gets them in the tea shop here where someone ELSE has done all the work and she can just enjoy them! 🙂

      Love, Teddy


  2. Mom is going to make these next week – she loves scones and pumpkin and cinnamon!!! Thanks for the recipe.
