Bakin’ With the King, Halloween Style!

Standard

Greetings from The Castle – I may be the KING OF BACON, but I know how to whip up some Halloween treats so have a seat, get your notepad and jot this one down – it’s easy, and not just kids love them – Moms do too (I have proof!).

Yep – this is so easy to make it’s almost ridiculous NOT to make them.     Mom had a plate of these on the dining room table and while the only people living in our house are Mom and Dad, both of them claim they didn’t make them disappear but they’re gone.   Mom has the ingredients on her grocery list for this Sunday again – wonder if the same GHOSTS and INVISIBLE SPIRITS will stop by and eat this next batch too?????

Pumpkin Pie-Stuffed Cookies

INGREDIENTS:

1/3 cup canned pumpkin pie mix (not plain pumpkin)

2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened

1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookie dough

1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon-sugar

DIRECTIONS:

Heat oven to 350°F. In small bowl, mix pumpkin pie mix and cream cheese; set aside.

In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in flour until mixed well. Sprinkle work surface with additional flour. With rolling pin, roll dough 1/8 inch thick, adding flour as needed to prevent sticking. With floured 2 1/2-inch round cutter, cut 24 dough rounds, rerolling scraps as needed.

On large ungreased cookie sheet, place 12 dough rounds about 2 inches apart. Spoon about 1 heaping teaspoon pumpkin mixture on center of each round. Top each with another dough round, crimping outer edges with fork to seal. Sprinkle tops of cookies with cinnamon-sugar mixture, gently spreading around with fingers if necessary.

Bake 16 to 18 minutes or until golden brown around edges. Cool on cookie sheet 10 minutes; remove to cooling rack until completely cooled.

See??????  Easy huh!!!!

I thought that’s what you’d say!

I want to make it perfectly clear that in spite of what my tummy might look like in this shot, I did NOT eat all the pumpkin pie stuffed cookies that disappeared from the table.   Honest.   I’m too big to hop up on the table ANYWAY!

Trick or Treaters will enjoy these cookies – just put two or three in a sealed baggie, and put that inside a cute Halloween treat bag.   FUN!

Here at the Castle Baconia, any child who manages to survive the alligators in the moat, the ghosts at the drawbridge, and our Butler who dresses up for Halloween, gets a TREAT!

Hope you all have a Happy Halloween……!  

Teddy, King of Baconia

  1. What perfect timing for this recipe! I have eggs warming to room temp in my spoonrest (they don’t roll off), but was trying to decide what kind of cookies to make!
    BTW, love that bat tie!

  2. Mom and some of the extended family really enjoyed those pumpkin scones, so maybe she needs to give these a try too. Thanks for another tasty recipe.

    • I guess I’ll have to figure out what to bring tomorrow……I might even try and find another costume instead of my DRACULA one. It will be fun to have a Cat Scouts party with everyone in costume!

      Hugs, Teddy
