Ingredients
  

Pumpkin Pasties

  • 2 pie crusts store-bought or homemade
  • 3 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree

Instructions
 

Make Pumpkin Pasties

  • Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  • Prepare Dough: Roll out one pie crust at a time. Cut out circles or any shapes you like. You can use cookie cutters—pumpkin shapes or rectangles work great. Re-roll the leftover dough and cut out more shapes.
  • Make Filling: In a mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add pumpkin puree, brown sugar, and pumpkin spice. Mix until combined.
  • Fill Pastries: Spoon a bit of the pumpkin filling onto the center of each pastry shape. Place another pastry shape on top. For round pasties, you can fold them over like an empanada.
  • Seal Pastries: Brush the edges with the beaten egg. Press the edges with a fork or just seal them with your fingers. For pumpkin shapes, cut a few slits on top to let steam escape.
  • Make Mummy Shapes: For mummy pasties, cut strips of dough. Place the filling on a rectangle and lay the strips across to look like a mummy.
  • Brush and Sprinkle: Brush the tops with egg wash and sprinkle with turbinado or raw sugar if you like.

Make Cinnamon Sugar

  • Mix Cinnamon Sugar: Combine the granulated sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle on top of the pastries after brushing with egg wash.

Bake

  • Bake Pastries: Place the pastries on a baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Cool and Serve: Let them cool completely. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
