Mmmmmm…Monday! Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts

29 Nov

Well, it’s Monday again!!! I hope you all had the best Thanksgiving EVER!! Below is a delicious recipe for HOMEMADE PUMPKIN POP TARTS :-D I found it on Emma’s wonderful food blog.

Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts

Makes 6 rather large tarts:)

For the crust: buy premade puff pastry. It’s in the freezer section. Any brand, I like Pepperridge Farm (they did not give me any money to say that;)
For the filling: 3/4 cup canned pumpkin, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 large egg, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon cloves, 1/8 teaspoon all spice.
For the glaze: 1/3 cup softened cream cheese, 2-3 tablespoons cream or milk (I used milk) and 3-4 tablespoons powdered sugar.
The puff pastry I bought came in two sheets. Using a pizza cutter, cut out 12 rectangles from the puff pastry sheets. Place six of the rectangles on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Combine all the filling ingredients, place a heaping spoonful in the middle of each rectangle.

Now place the other six rectangles on top, and using a fork crimp the edges. Bake at 375 F for 16-18 minutes.
While those are baking, combined (very) softened cream cheese, powdered sugar and milk and whisk to create the glaze.

Once the pop tarts are out of the oven, place them on a cooling rack and drizzle with the glaze.
