    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!

  2. With Style and Grace

    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!

    Ok, these turned out fantastically!! Instead of drizzling with chocolate, I dolloped them with homemade whipped cream. 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!!

    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! 🙂 So so good! Will definitely make again!

    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!

  6. 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?

  7. 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!

    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)

  12. 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!
