  1. How cute and yummy!!

    Unfortunately, I have yet to find canned pumpkin in my area. I am told that the so called “pumpkin shortage” is a myth, but as long as everyone buys into the theory and stockpiles it as soon as it hits shelves….it’s pretty much a reality.

    So as of yet, no pumpkin for me.

    Sigh….maybe someday soon!!

  2. So cute Jenny! Love them! I wish had one of them right now. Yum!
    I made sure to stocked up on pumpkin so these are a must try. I bet these would be good as sweet potato tarts too…that is if you couldn’t get your hands on pumpkin. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I was just thinking about creating something similar to this with pumpkin. Thanks for helping me out. I will be making these this week.

  4. Wow, these look out of this world! I LOVE the pumpkin shape, but I reallyyyy LOVE the photo of the sugar shower. You got some seriously fabulous shots!!

  5. These look awesome! I’ve been trying to hold off baking with pumpkin until fall “officially” starts. I’ve accumulated about 15 new pumpkin recipes, and this is definitely going to the top of that list!

    These look AMAZING! You are so creative! I love that you take simple ingredients and turn them into something with “wow” factor! Your photos are gorgeous, Jenny!

    Oh. My. Gawd!! I have been thinking of pumpkin for the last few days and this morning I wake up to this!!!
    *cue the angels singing*

    I will definitely have to try these : )

    1. Mikalisa

      FYI: made these last night w/ the kids! Turned out awesome and a lot of fun! Thanx again! Btw, what do u do w/ the extra dough?

  9. These look awesome! I am all about pumpkin this time of year. Made pumpkin waffles for breakfast last Saturday (see blog) and will have to make these next Saturday. Thanks for sharing!

  10. Jen

    Oh my! I went to the store today and bought everything to make these. So easy and SO yummy!!! My family loved them. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Nicole

    I just finished baking these and they are WONDERFUL! One of the BEST pumpkin desserts I’ve ever had! I even cut out squares and rectangles out of the extra dough so I could nibble on those and take the actual cookies to work tomorrow! YUM!

  12. Shanda

    I made these over the weekend and they are fabulous!! I only had a smaller pumpkin cookie cutter, so it made a few more than the recipe said, but the more the better!! :0)

  13. I am always inspired when people come up with fantastic ideas using the simple ingredients. I love this! I can only imagine how wonderful your kitchen smelled during the baking – like fall!

  14. Jennifer S.

    Made these yesterday for my hubby….they are SOOOOO good! Will definitely be taking them as my dish at a friend’s get together. They were super easy to make and really tasty! I have never used puff pastry before and now I love it. Thank you for such great ideas!

  15. Eve

    Made these yesterday-FABULOUS!!! But I was so sad to just throw out the extra puff pastry dough…what can you do with the extra?

  16. margie

    I just made these for my apple picking brunch, they went over well. I liked that you could taste the pumpkin and the pastry equally.
    I made two small changes and cut my puff pastry into squares. (I hate waste) and offered whipped cream on the side. My guests loved them! Thanks for the idea!

  17. Jennifer

    I made these last night – couldn’t wait to make my first pumpkin dessert of the season! These were light and delicious – perfect for those who love pumpkin and even those who don’t! I didn’t know what to do with the remainder of the puff pastry (roll it out to use again?) so I just cut the remaining dough into rectangle/squares from the edges and spooned the pumpkin just like for the others. When people want seconds, they don’t care what shape they’re in! ๐Ÿ™‚ So so good! Will definitely make again!

  18. Ok, these turned out fantastically!! Instead of drizzling with chocolate, I dolloped them with homemade whipped cream. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the recipe!!

  19. These are too freakin’ adorable, I had to give them a try. My attempt at these tart are on my blog today, but certainly don’t stand up to your talent! Thank you for the continuous inspiration, I absolutely love your site!

  20. Jennifer

    Thank you for posting this easy, wonderful recipe! I have already made it twice this fall. I use a mini pumpkin cutter and then use white chocolate to drizzle the “pumpkin lines”-so adorable and yummy!

  21. Holy pumpkin these are fabulous! I just made them tonight and they seriously ROCK! This was my first time working with puff pastry. It is simply dreamy! Thank you so much for this recipe. I foresee it becoming a part of my autumn traditions.

  22. You sure know how to work a can of pumpkin! I have never seen pumpkin used in sooo many different delicious ways, thanks for the inspiration…
