Hot Pie’s Direwolf Scones

Again, Hot Pie brings us another tasty recipe from the HBO series!

In season three, he bakes and gives to Arya a small loaf of bread that looks like a direwolf:


Well, sort of.

But as soon as I saw this episode, I knew I would have to try my hand at making some of my own.

I first tried making this with ordinary bread dough (a variation on the cookbook oatbread), but it not only didn’t retain those nice crisp edges, but ended up looking like gross lumpy Jabba-wolves. So I opted instead for a scone recipe, which worked way better.

Recipe for Direwolf Scones


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 Tbs. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup cream or milk, or more as needed
  • dried currants, for eyes

Combine all dry ingredients, and then gradually add in the milk while stirring. If you need a bit more milk, add it until you have one cohesive and soft dough. Press the dough out on your work surface to a thickness of around 3/4″ thick. Using a sharp paring knife, cut out a rough wolf shape. Don’t worry if it’s a little ugly: Hot Pie’s was rustic as well!

Cut extra strips for additional legs and press them onto the main wolf shape, or leave them with just two legs. Cut a criss-cross shape for teeth and press a currant into the dough for an eye. If you like, texture the tops with the tines of a fork.

Bake in a preheated oven at 350F for 10-12 minutes, or until the tops are a nice golden brown.

In the head version, I snipped the edges of the head to make it look like tufts of fur, and used slivered almonds for the teeth. Rawr!

And for extra kicks, here I am making these wolves on MTV Geek’s “Cooking with Thrones” episode 3 recap!

      Haha, I don’t think I actually took pictures of them, just ate it all to hide the evidence. :)

    Nice! Will give them a go shortly and might also try baking lovely rugged direwolfs with Irish soda bread dough.

    Yes, that head is awesome. Well, maybe my next homemade bread will be a direwolf bread too. :0)
