Ingredients

  • 1 sheet frozen pie dough thawed
  • 3/4 cup homemade pumpkin butter or see note
  • 1 ounce cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk or non-dairy milk, as needed.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Roll out pie dough to 1/4 inch thick and cut into 12 equal shapes (I did pumpkins), using a cookie cutter or knife.
  • Mix together the pumpkin butter and cream cheese until well combined. 
  • On 6 of the pie crust shapes, place 1 tablespoon pumpkin butter in the center. 
  • Top with a remaining shape and crimp the edges together with a fork. Prick a tiny hole on top of stuffed pumpkin to let steam escape during baking.
  • Brush with egg wash or buttermilk to get mini pies extra golden. 
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes or until cookie is golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minute and then transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.

For Glaze

  • Sift powder sugar and then slowly whisk in 1 teaspoon of milk at a time to form a thick glaze consistency--only using as much milk as you need.
  • Drizzle over the pumpkins and let set up for 5-10 minutes and serve.

Notes

Instead of pumpkin butter, mix together: 
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice
