In this post: A delicious and easy Pumpkin Pie Turnover Recipe that has an amazing cinnamon glaze that is the perfect finishing touch to this fall dessert!
Fall is in full bloom. The days are much shorter, the leaves are falling, and pumpkins are everywhere. Even though it’s not Saturday, my Home Style Saturdays crew decided to get together today to present some easy, informal fall inspiration that we’re calling The Fall Home Style Blog Hop. Everyone is sharing fresh, new ideas and all the links are at the end of the post.
Easy Pumpkin Pie
I know this pumpkin pie turnover recipe isn’t technically “pumpkin pie,” but it’s a delicious way to mix things up and make something that’s a little different. The pumpkin filling is super quick to make and nothing could be easier than puff pastry. Top that off with a cinnamon glaze and you have a pretty and festive fall dessert.
Pumpkin Pie Turnover Recipe Tips:
- This pumpkin pie turnover recipe is not overly sweet. If you opt to skip the glaze, add a little more sugar to the filling. The glaze really is delicious and adds great flavor to the turnovers.
- If, by chance, you have turnovers left at the end of the day, they can be stored overnight in an airtight container. On the second day, they taste great if warmed in the microwave before serving.
- If you aren’t a fan of puff pastry, substitute homemade or refrigerated pie crust dough. Just adjust the shape of the turnover to accomodate the shape of your pastry.
- If your grocery doesn’t carry Pepperidge Farms Puff Pastry, any brand will work. Again, just adjust the size/shape of the turnovers if your pastry isn’t square.
We ate these turnovers like a big cookie, but they would be so good paired with ice cream and served like a real piece of pie. Pumpkin is such a classic fall flavor and there’s so many ways to enjoy it that aren’t pumpkin pie!
Now I hope you have a few extra minutes to see how my friends have been celebrating fall!
