Delicious and Adorable Pumpkin Pecan Hand Pies

Adorable Pumpkin Pecan Hand Pies – Perfect for the holiday season!

This is {most likely} my last pumpkin recipe for you all this fall, and I am definitely ending on a high note with these Pumpkin Pecan Hand Pies! We’ve talked about this before, but I really enjoy individual dessert servings. When you are hosting a party or if you just have a large family, individual servings are so much easier. Cutting and serving a pie takes work and usually a little mess if you are klutzy like me; these are grab and go! Perfect, right?!

Adorable Pumpkin Pecan Hand Pies! These individual pies, shaped like a pumpkin no less, are the perfect holiday dessert. Cute and Delicious! | The Love Nerds Plus, they are in the shape of a pumpkin! Of course, this isn’t necessary and you could do regular rectangles, but aren’t they cute? I will admit that it does take a little bit longer cutting out shapes than using a cutter to cut straight lines for rectangles, but they will make a bigger impact.

I was actually surprised how much Bryan liked them because of the pecans. He is not a huge nut person, but he loved the pecans in these. He had a couple of our friends over when I was out of town a week or so ago, and a friend of ours had TWO of these that night. My family and friends are always my meter for how good a recipe is, so I’m considering these a hit. Of course, you would easily remove the pecan if there is an allergy or hatred for nuts {side note: how do people hate pecans?}. The nutty flavor pairs so well with the pumpkin, though, that it is worth the try if there is not allergy. I mean, Bryan ended up loving them after all, remember? 😉

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: depends on cookie cutter size
Ingredients
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup brown sugar (unpacked)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ pumpkin pie spice
  • 1½ tablespoon heavy cream
  • ¼ cup pecans
  • 1 package Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust
  • 1 egg
  • Cinnamon, sugar and pumpkin pie spice to sprinkle on top
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees {F}.
  2. Filling: Mix pumpkin, brown sugar, spices, heavy cream and pecans in a bowl until well combined.
  3. Unroll the pre-made dough on a flat, floured surface. Using your desired cookie cutter, cut out an even amount of shapes. Continue to roll the dough out and cut until you use up your pie crust.
  4. Prep the cookie sheet by covering with parchment paper.
  5. Place half the dough shapes onto the parchment paper and add about a tablespoon of filling to the middle of each shape. You want to leave enough space around the edges to combine with the top pie crust piece.
  6. Place the top pie crust piece on top and press together with your fingers to connect. Use a fork to make a pretty edge but ensure a good seal.
  7. Whisk one egg in a small bowl and brush on top of the dough to get a beautiful golden color. Lastly, sprinkle with cinnamon, sugar and pumpkin pie spice.
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

    I LOVE this idea! I’ve been wanting to make individual pies and thought I would have to buy mini pie pans in order to do that. I’d never heard of hand pies! So thanks for sharing. Pinning!
