If you love pumpkin pie, you'll adore this miniature, handheld version. To create the filling, pumpkin purée is blended with vanilla extract, brown sugar, and our favorite pie spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice. It's wrapped in puff pastry and baked until golden and flaky outside and gooey inside. On top, a drizzle of homemade maple glaze makes the perfect finishing touch.

    Cooking Steps

    1. Prepare ingredients

      Prepare ingredients

      Preheat oven to 425°F. Separate puff pastry squares and set aside to soften at room temperature. In a small bowl, whisk 1 egg. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for Step 3.

    2. Make pumpkin filling

      Make pumpkin filling

      In a medium bowl, stir together pumpkin purée, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract, brown sugar, half of egg, and ¼ teaspoon salt until thoroughly combined. Reserve remaining egg.

    3. Assemble hand pies

      Assemble hand pies

      Arrange puff pastry squares in a single layer on prepared baking sheet, spacing apart. Using your hands, gently stretch or press puff pastry squares on sheet into slightly larger squares, about 6 x 6 inches each. Add pumpkin filling to centers of squares, leaving a 1-inch border. Lightly brush borders of pastry with some reserved egg (save remainder for the next step).

    4. Bake hand pies

      Bake hand pies

      Gently fold 1 corner of each puff pastry square over filling to form a triangle, then press edges with your fingers to seal—this is a great task for a kitchen helper. Cut a ½-inch slit on top of each hand pie so steam can escape, then brush over remaining egg. Bake until hand pies are puffed and golden brown, 14-16 minutes.

    5. Make maple glaze

      Make maple glaze

      While hand pies bake, in a separate medium bowl, combine powdered sugar, sour cream, 1 tablespoon maple syrup, and ⅛ teaspoon salt and whisk until mixture is smooth and pourable.

    6. Finish and plate hand pies

      Finish and plate hand pies

      Let pumpkin hand pies cool for 5-10 minutes, then drizzle over maple glaze. Dig in!
