Recipe Details


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 smooth 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 1 cup pumpkin purée, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract, brown sugar, half of egg, and ¼ teaspoon salt until thoroughly combined. Reserve remaining egg for the next step.

  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 pumpkin filling to form a triangle, then press edges with your fingers to seal. 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 (use remainder to drizzle over your morning oatmeal), and ⅛ teaspoon salt. Whisk until glaze 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. Transfer to serving plates and dig in!
