Halloween Pumpkin Pastries

Q: Why was the mummy so tense?

A: Because he was a wound up!

No need to stress over anything when you’re baking these little monsters. With a few store-bought ingredients, these cute Halloween pastries will leave everyone saying, “I want mummy.”



4 sheets pre-made pie dough

1 cup pumpkin puree

1/4 cup brown sugar1

tsp vanilla

1 egg

1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice

1 egg, for brushing

Googly eyes


Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Mix together pumpkin, sugar, vanilla, egg and spice. Mix until evenly incorporated.

Cut pie dough into roughly 3” x 4” rectangles, reserving the scraps.

Fill each rectangle with 2 tbsp. filling and spread evenly, leaving 1/4 inch of the dough around all the edges.

Cut pie dough scraps into thin strips. Brush the edges of the dough with egg wash and arrange the pie dough scraps on top of each filled rectangle. You want them to be overlapping and irregular to look like a “mummy.”

Brush all the tops with egg wash and sprinkle with sugar or sprinkles.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until dough is golden brown. Give each pastry a set of google eyes!
