Pumpkin Pasties

As promised, I am bringing you all another tasty pumpkin recipe for fall.  It just so happens that this fall recipe is also an adaptation of an English treat that is mentioned in the Harry Potter books (no, I am still not over Harry being gone).


The idea of making Pumpkin Pasties originated from the famous Cornish Pasty.  The Cornish Pasty is traditionally filled with beef, potatoes, turnip, onions, and salt and pepper.  The ingredients are encased in rolled out dough and baked until golden brown.  Making these delightful pasties is on my to-do list, but first, I shall enjoy the pumpkin version!


Pumpkin Pasties
Ingredients:
-1 cup canned pumpkin
-1/4 cup granulated sugar
-1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
-1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
-1 prepared pie crust
-1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water for egg wash
-Sugar for sprinkling

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. 

In a bowl, mix together the pumpkin, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg until well combined.  Roll out the prepared dough on a cookie sheet and cut into circles using a 4 or 5-inch round cutter.  In the middle of each circle place a scoop of the pumpkin mixture (about 1 to 1 tablespoons).


Fold the dough over the filling to seal and use the end of a fork to crimp and seal the edges.  Cut little tiny slits on the tops to make vents.  Brush each pasty with the egg wash and sprinkle a little sugar on top if you would like.



Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until browned.  These pasties can be eaten for breakfast, as a snack, or as an after dinner treat!

Enjoy!

  15. I've made these twice... once with store bought and once with homemade. The pictures above are of both types of crust! Can you tell which is which? I honestly did not see much of a difference so I'll use store bought when I'm lazy lol

  17. These look fantastic.

    A friend of mine made some pumpkin pasties for her Harry Potter party. It was an amazing evening of tasty treats. Hargrids rock cakes, golden snitch cupcakes, butterbeer, chocolate frogs and pasties to name a few items.

    I'm with you. I want more Harry Potter!
