While you may be thinking, yes, Aimee, today is Labor Day…no more white pants!

I am actually thinking, yes, Aimee, the day it is socially acceptable to begin sharing pumpkin recipes on the blog!

While you may be thinking, pumpkin recipes already?

I am actually thinking, YES, just like my zucchini crazed August, prepare for a pumpkin crazed September!

These Pumpkin Hand Pies are the perfect fall treat! The flaky crust and nutty pumpkin pie filling are the perfect combo in a hand pie, plus they’ve got a wonderful maple walnut glaze!

But in all seriousness, we foodies tend to put parameters around when it’s okay to begin sharing certain flavors. Pumpkin in September, Peppermint after Thanksgiving, etc etc. In all honesty, I don’t usually follow those rules, but I know on facebook, ya’ll yelled at me in August when I began sharing pumpkin!

Let’s talk about today’s recipe and forget all rules, mkay? Because when it comes to these hand pies, there are NO rules.

  • I used a box of refrigerated pie crust for this recipe, to make things easy. You can make your own pie crust if you prefer, totes cool with me.
  • For the filling, I thought it would be awesome to add some chopped walnuts. I used Fisher Nuts Walnuts for today’s treat, because I love that they are preservative free and they taste amazing! I also saved some to sprinkle on top!!
  • Once these baked up, I gave them a dunk in a sweet, maple glaze. Drop them into the glaze, then use two forks to flip it over and let the excess glaze drip off. The double side of glaze is amazing, but you’re welcome to only dunk the tops if you prefer.
  • These are fantastic warm. BUT, after eating a couple warm I placed the leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Oh my, they are also wonderful cold (with a dollop of homemade whipped cream)! ENJOY.

Pumpkin Hand Pies

Yield: 12-14 hand pies

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

These Pumpkin Hand Pies are the perfect fall treat! The flaky crust and nutty pumpkin pie filling are the perfect combo in a hand pie, plus they’ve got a wonderful maple walnut glaze!

Ingredients:

For the Hand Pies:

  • 1 box (14.1 oz) refrigerated pie crust
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (I use canned)
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup chopped Fisher Nuts Walnuts
  • 1 egg white, beaten

For the glaze:

  • 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp maple flavoring
  • 2-3 Tbsp milk
  • 1/4 cup Fisher Nuts Walnuts, chopped

Directions:

  1. Preheat over to 425°F. Remove pie crusts from package and allow to come to room temperature while you prepare the filling.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, brown sugar, allspice, and cinnamon. Fold in chopped Fisher Nuts Walnuts. Set aside.
  3. Unroll pie crusts and cut 6 circles from each crust using a 4 -inch biscuit cutter. Re-roll the scraps to get more circles.
  4. Using a 1 Tbsp cookie scoop, drop pumpkin filling into center of each pie crust circle. Fold in half and pinch edges completely, Fold pinched edges over and using a fork, press the tines of the fork to seal. Poke hand pies with a fork once, to prevent bursting.
  5. Beat egg white in a small bowl until frothy and brush over the tops of each hand pie. Bake on parchment paper lined cookie sheet for about 13-15 minutes, until browned.
  6. While pies are baking, prepare glaze. Whisk together the powdered sugar, maple, and milk until smooth.
  7. Remove cooked pies from baking sheet and drop (while warm) into glaze, coating it completely (I used two forks to flip it over and remove excess glaze). Return to parchment paper and sprinkle immediately with chopped walnuts. Allow to set, about 10 minutes.
  8. Eat warm or refrigerate and enjoy cold, like pumpkin pie!

    Hi there came across your recipe for these pumpkin hand pies and I love anything pumpkin but I was wondering if there was another glaze I could use as I don’t like maple…..Thanks for your time …Shelley

  19. Kelli

    Can you use real maple syrup instead of maple flavoring?

  20. Emily

    Do you know if these will freeze well prior to dipping them into the glaze?
