HARRY POTTER'S PUMPKIN PASTIES

October 11, 2010

Author Notes: My boys discovered this recipe on an internet search for Harry Potter recipes. Harry Potter eats these treats on the Hogwarts Express. They are, indeed, little pumpkin pastries. This is a very simple recipe - the original calls for store bought cookie dough, but I thought I'd jazz them up a bit by using Mrs. Larkin's "Best Chewy Sugar Cookie" recipe. Waverly

Serves: 12

Ingredients

  • 1 Batch Food 52 Mrs. Larkins' Best Chewy Sugar Cookie Recipe
  • 1 28 oz can pumpkin pie filling
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 3 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
In This Recipe

Directions

  1. PREP: Make the dough for Mrs. Larkin's sugar cookies (search for the recipe here on Food 52). Do not roll them in the coarse Turbinado sugar. We will save that step for later. Roll dough into a log and chill. Do not bake them. Preheat the oven to 350. Spray a muffin tin with all natural canola oil or baking spray.
  2. SPREAD DOUGH AND TOP WITH FILLING: Cut chilled log of cookie dough into 12 even pieces. Sprinkle muffin tin with the coarse turbinado (or demera) sugar. Shake the tin so that the sugar fills each muffin cup evenly. This is going to make the pasties nice and crunchy. Next, place 1 slice of cookie dough into each muffin cup. Spread the dough out, like you would tart dough, very thin. The dough will cover the bottom and sides. Drop 1 heaping Tbsp of pie filling into each pastie. Bake until golden brown, 12-15 minutes.
  3. SPRINKLE WITH SPICES: In a small bowl, combine the sugar and spice. Sprinkle on top of hot baked pasties. Cool and serve.

How long do you chill the log?

Can you make this with premade organic sugar cookie dough?

I just tried this recipe with speculaas (biscoff) spices in the cookie - I highly recommend it this way! Add 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon each of allspice, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger to dry ingredients.

PLUS one tablespoon of molasses (I used sorghum)

Waverly, do you use Ms. Larkin's original sugar cookie dough or the sugar cookie #2 recipe that was the Editor's Pick?

They are open-faced. I will post a photograph this afternoon (hopefully). BTW, I make your cookies all the time.

Yay!

This is so cool, Waverly! Are the pasties open-faced, or do you gather the cookie dough over the top?

These are open-faced. Very easy to make - the coarse sugar called for in Mrs. Larkin's recipe makes is placed on the bottom of each muffin cup so that the bottom of each pastie are nice and crunchy.
