Pumpkin Mummy Hand Pies, All Things Pumpkin Link-up

I am so excited for week one of the ‘All Things Pumpkin’ link-up. I absolutely can not wait to see what y’all have to share. For week one I chose to share a recipe. It’s very likely that I’ll share a recipe every stinking week. It’s my favorite way to use pumpkins and it give me an excuse to bake something. Win-Win!

Mummy Pumpkin Hand Pies. Adorable pumpkin pie filled treats that the kids (and adults) love.

Okay, I’ll be honest. These weren’t the easiest thing to make. BUT, don’t move on and give up on them yet. The biggest problem was me. For some crazy reason I decided to make my own pie crust…and that is where things became difficult. Do yourself a great big massive favor and just buy pre-made crusts at the store. Then, putting these together will actually be a lot of fun. I promise.

  1. 1 Pacage, 2 pre-made pie crusts
  1. 1 cup of pumpkin reduced to 3/4 cup (see directions)
  2. 2 T White sugar
  3. 2 T Brown sugar
  4. 2 oz Cream cheese softened
  5. 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  6. 1 Egg yolk
  7. 2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  1. 1 Egg white
  2. 1/2 T water
  3. Cinnamon sugar for sprinkling
  4. Candy eyes
  1. 1) Strain the pumpkin. Simply place the one cup of pumpkin onto a tea towel or a stack of paper towels and squeeze out the excess water. The process only take a couple minutes and you should have about 3/4 cup pumpkin when done.
  2. 2) Mix the cream cheese with the sugars until blended. Add in the pumpkin, vanilla, spices and egg yolk. Mix until well combined. Set aside.
  3. 3) Roll out your pie crust trying for a rectangular shape. Ideally 11x13 but if you can't get it that big you can always re-roll the remainder. I cut my bases into 9, 3-x4 rectangles but you can make whatever size you'd like. You should end up with 8-12 pies depending on size. Lay your base pieces onto a baking tray with a baking mat or a piece of parchment paper on it.
  4. 4) Scoop 1-2 T of the pumpkin filling onto each base, carefully spread leaving the edges untouched.
  5. 5) Mix the egg white with the water and beat with a whisk. Brush a little around the bare edges of the base.
  6. 6) Cut the remaining rolled out crusts into strips. Mine varied between 1/2 & 1/3 of an inch. I added a strip to the top and bottom first then randomly layed the rest. When you are done trim off any excess and make sure the edges are sealed.
  7. 7) Lightly brush with remaining egg wash and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
  8. 7) Bake at 375 for about 20-25 minutes until the crust is a light golden brown.
  9. 8) Remove from tray and place on cooling rack. Immediately add the candy eyes.

Assembling these hand pies is pretty simple. If you have a tendency to over think things like I do, let your kids help. I was strategizing and trying to create the perfect mummies. About half way through, I realized I needed relax and not over complicate the process. When I finished them I thought to myself this is never going to work. I put them in the oven and walked away hoping for a miracle. 


I still can’t believe how cute they turned out. I learned SO much making this recipe. I knew I needed to blog about it to share what I learned with others.

Let’s review:
#1 Buy your pie crust.
#2 Just have fun with it. Involve the kids.
#3 Seal them well and trust the process.
#4 The are SO good. 

I hope y’all love this recipe and that my lessons learned help someone!

Now comes the confusing part. There are actually two link-ups going on in this post. Hello never tried before craziness. I’ve tried to label them and separate them with a photo to keep everything crystal clear. The first is Tuesday Talk, followed by All Things Pumpkin. If you are here for the pumpkin party I’d encourage you to add your post to both. Why not!

  1. Those are absolutely adorable. Am I allowed to think food is adorable? I love this so much. We need to make them.

  2. I am in love with these, and so impressed!!! Definitely buy premade pie crust, I wouldn’t attempt it any other way! Where do you buy those eyes??

    1. Thanks Meghan :). You can buy those eyes at Walmart for sure. They might be with the cake decorating stuff. You can also get them at Michaels or Hobby Lobby! There are SO many fun things you can do with those eyes!

  3. These are absolutely adorable!!! Emma would have so much fun helping make these!! This is being put on our list of things to make =) Thanks for sharing!!

  4. Ummm these are so freaking cute!!! Seriously, great job!! And you even made your own crust!? Impressive! I think I’ll go store bought though if I attempt these, LOL

    1. Well I always make my own pie crusts so I didn’t second guess it…. I should have reconsidered before making these. It was just too much work. Totally go for store bought, I will next time!

  5. I saw these and wanted to make them, but I knew that mine would never look like this! You are a professional in the kitchen, my friend. Yours came out so good and now I am craving one! Can you send one to Texas? 😉 Ha!

    1. Best compliment ever. I was actually telling Stephanie the other day that I totally feel like I could just blog recipes, but that would get old fast. After making these I knew I HAD to share the recipe. There were just too many tips that needed to be addressed. like BUYING the crust. I wish I could but they are all gone now :P.

    1. They are super fun to make if you just take it for what it is and do all the prep before welcoming in the little hands. Oh the lessons I’ve learned :P.

  6. How cute are these?!?! I cant get over the brillance of this and you! Pinning for sure!
    Also, I apologize for adding my link to the wrong link up, duh. 😉

  7. You get Mom of the Year (or maybe Mummy of the Year) for making your own pie crust. I have never attempted that. They turned out so cute, though!

    1. I adore your sense of humor Emily. I ALWAYS make my own crust (I’m weird?)… but exceptions just need to be made for some recipes. Live and learn. Thank you so much.

  8. Ok seriously, these are cutest things I’ve ever seen! They are almost too cute to eat, but I know they taste as good as they look cute, so they wouldn’t stand a chance at my house 🙂 One of these weekends, I need to clear some time to try to make these!

    1. I thought the same exact things… but then I ate them and they were SO yummy. I need to remake these WITH the store crust. I bet they wouldn’t be too big of a pain.

  9. These are just adorable!!! Kudos to you for making your own crust. Probably tasted yummier 🙂

  10. Are you serious?!! These are the cutest thing ever! I’m totally making these this weekend! Love this!

  11. These are adorable!! I just bought some of those eyes for another project so I’ll have to give this one a try. I’m wondering how it would work with apple mummies?!?! I bet Olive would love making these cute mummies. Thanks for the idea 🙂
