How To Make Hand Pie Recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a large baking sheet with a silpat liner.
  2. Lay each puff pastry sheet flat and cut into 6 rectangles making 12 total. Place cream cheese and pumpkin into a small mixing bowl, stirring until smooth. Place a heaping tablespoon of pumpkin mixture over 6 of the cut pastry rectangles. Spread evenly leaving a 1/4 inch border around edges. Place brown sugar and cinnamon into a small bowl, stirring to combine. Sprinkle a generous spoonful over filling. Brush egg wash around edges of pastry then place remaining pastries over filled pastries. Use the tines of a fork to press and seal the edges tightly.
  3. Brush tops of pastries lightly with the egg wash. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until slightly golden brown. Remove and let cool for 10 minutes.
  4. Whisk powdered sugar and water until thick and smooth. Drizzle over tops and serve warm or room temperature.

    These look delicious! I think I will use Trader Joe’s pumpkin cream cheese for the ultimate pumpkin flavor. I can imagine all kinds of different fillings inside of the puff pastry!
