It’s just about time for all-pumpkin-everything. While I’ve never been a PSL drinker, I love pumpkin desserts as much as the next person. Give me a pumpkin pastry or pumpkin bread, and I’m SET. And when I saw Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts in the store recently, I just knew I had to make my own. Made with pre-made pie crust, homemade pumpkin pie Pop Tarts (or hand pies) are surprisingly easy to make. No special mixers or tools required!
Mixed with pumpkin pie spices and brown sugar, the pumpkin pop tart filling is simple to whip up in 2 minutes. Dollop the filling in the center of squares of pie crust, and crimp the top and bottom together to create the classic look of a pop tart or hand pie. After an egg wash, bake them until lightly golden, and finish them with a cinnamon and sugar icing. One of these homemade pumpkin pop tarts are going to be a must-have with your morning coffee or tea all week!
Although the classic rectangle pop tarts are the easiest to cut, you can also play with shapes. Try a circle or a cute pumpkin cookie cutter to make even more unique pop tarts! After you’ve iced the Pop Tarts, decorate them however you want, like with extra cinnamon, sugar crystals or themed sprinkles. They’re delicious for ANY occasion, but let’s be honest, we’ll take any excuse to eat pumpkin pastries for breakfast.
Here’s how to make your own easy homemade pumpkin pie Pop Tarts with pumpkin filling!
