Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pasties

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Happy Fall and Happy October! I’ve got a yummy fall-type (and geeky) recipe to share with you today.

A few weeks back my lovely sister-in-love, Tiffany, posted a photo of another culinary creation on her Instagram: Pumpkin Pasties. Yes, she created one of the many delicious treats from the Harry Potter universe. I asked for the recipe, she did me one better and told me to come over (and bring eggs).

Gluten-free Pumpkin Pasties

She made both regular ones and gluten-free ones just for me. I brought the gluten-free ones to work the next day, and everyone loved them. Here’s the recipe!

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pasties

Ingredients Needed

For the dough:

For the filling:

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • ¼ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice

For the cinnamon sugar topping:

  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat over to 350℉
  2. Make the dough by combining the ingredients from top to bottom.
  3. Roll out the dough and using the empty can from the pumpkin puree (or anything circular), cut out dough into circles.
  4. Place circles on a greased cookie sheet.
  5. In a bowl, whisk the filling ingredients together. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of filling onto every other circle.
  6. Cover the filled circles and a use a fork to seal them.
  7. Use a pastry brush to brush the tops of the circles with the milk. Sprinkle some cinnamon sugar on top (to taste).
  8. Bake the cookies for 10-15 minutes, or until the edges start to turn golden brown. Remove from the oven and let them cool for 10 minutes before moving to a wire rack.
