A couple years ago, I shared Pumpkin Pecan Hand Pies with all of you shaped like pumpkins. Since they are individual servings, they are great to serve at fall parties and holidays. No one wants to be standing behind a counter serving up dessert when they can be enjoying their guests. With Halloween right around the corner, I decided it was the perfect time to whip up a new batch of Pumpkin Hand Pies, this time as Pumpkin MUMMY Hand Pies for a fun Halloween twist.

These are easy to make in any size you want. Go smaller to make a larger batch or go bigger and have what I would more call a Cookie Hand Pies. Lots of options, all with a delicious pumpkin filling. The filling has my favorite fall spices mixed into pumpkin puree – cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie spice. Plus, if you love pecans as much as I do, they add an earthy flavor that pairs well with the pumpkin and spices.

Pumpkin Mummy Hand Pies
 
Author:
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 refrigerated pie crust
  • 1 egg
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 size, cut out your base for the hand pies. Keep the leftover dough and cut into strips to make your mummy wrapping.
  4. Prep the cookie sheet by covering with parchment paper.
  5. Place your dough base onto the parchment paper and add about a tablespoon of filling to the middle of each shape. You want to leave a little bit of space around the edges to seal the strips of dough to the base.
  6. Whisk one egg in a small bowl and brush on top to get a beautiful golden color.
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  8. Lastly, add candy eyes to the top.
