So glad I found this recipe because I love samosas and this pumpkin hand pie reminds me of them. It's not your traditional sweet pie, but I love the kick of spice and the portable-size. Enjoy! Ingredients: 1 (15-ounce) box frozen pie crusts (to make 2 9-inch crusts) 3/4 cup pumpkin puree 1/3 cup sugar, plus more for sprinkling 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg Pinch salt Flour for rolling 1 egg, beaten Instructions: 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Defrost the pie crusts. 2. Put the pumpkin in a small bowl and stir in the sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and salt. 3. Sprinkle a little flour on a clean work surface and unroll one of the pie crusts. Roll it a little thinner to widen it and cut 6-inch circles out of the dough using a large round cookie cutter or the tip of a paring knife. Use a spatula to transfer the circles to a baking sheet. Gather the scraps, reroll and cut to make 3 more circles. 4. Put a heaping teaspoon of filling in the center of each circle on the baking sheet. Fold over the crust to make a half circle, and press the edges tightly together with the tines of a fork. Repeat with the remaining pie crust and filling on a second baking sheet. 5. Brush each pie with beaten egg and poke a few hole in the top with the fork. Sprinkle each one lightly with sugar to add a little shine. Bake for 15 minutes, until golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature.
This recipe looks so simple!
I love this. When I was working at Starbucks, we used to sell pumpkin empanadas that sound really really similar to ths recipe. (But I'll admit, this recipe is probably MUCH tastier!)
@danidee pumpkin empanadas!? Those sound awesome!
Every Tuesday at UCSD there is a farmer's market booth that sell Ethopian samosas and I love it. Especialy the spinach, curry potato and coconut filling. I'm so curious about this pumpkin hand pie! It sounds delicous.
Wow. This looks great. I regret scrolling through the baking page while hungry. My stomach is not cooperating.
