These magical hand pies are perfect for the changing season! Filled with a sweet and spicy pumpkin filling, this simple recipe basically tastes like autumn wrapped in a crust.
What you’ll need:
›› 2 pie crusts (store bought or homemade)
›› 1 can pumpkin puree
›› 1/3 cup brown sugar
›› 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
›› 1 tsp vanilla extract
›› 1 egg (beaten, for wash)
›› Preheat oven to 375.
›› Mix pumpkin puree, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla extract in a small bowl until combined.
›› Roll out pie crusts on a lightly floured surface. Using cookie cutters or a round bowl (I used 6” tart pans), cut out as many circles from your pie crusts as you can (I got 8 hand pies).
›› Add 1-2 tablespoons of pumpkin pie filling to the center of each circle.
›› Take your egg wash and lightly brush the perimeter of your circles before folding each of them in half, lightly pinching the edges. Brush the top of each pie with the remaining egg wash. Cut a vent on the top of each pie.
›› Place each pie on a parchment-lined pan before baking for 15-20minutes (until golden brown).
