These Mummy Pumpkin Hand Pies are easy to make and are sure to be a hit at your Halloween party!  I used store bought puff pastry and whipped up a quick pumpkin filling. The googly eyes add just the right touch for a friendly mummy look!

Making Mummy Pumpkin Hand Pies.

The hardest part when making these mummies is the folding of the mummy. Actually, it’s not hard, it just takes a few minutes to make each mummy.  The key is making small strips and folding them over the filling in a random manner.

The candy eyes get tucked in just before folding the last few strips.

Once each mummy is complete, they get a light egg was coating and then they are popped into the oven until golden brown. These Mummy Pumpkin Hand Pies are delicious eaten warm or at room temperature.

Don’t worry if you no longer have little kiddos at home anymore, my three teenagers thought these were a delicious treat! The may act like they are too old for all these cute things, but deep down, they still think they are fun!

Mini Mummy Pumpkin Hand Pies are a fun treat for all your little goblins!

A few tips when making these mummies:

  • Do not place too much filling or it will be oozing out all over.
  • Cut strips after you place filling.
  • Use egg wash to help secure puff pastry strips. The strips are fine when touching the filling, but when they are layered on top of another strip only, use a bit of egg wash between the strips.
  • Place mummies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper to help avoid sticking.
  • Use an egg wash over entire surface before baking.
  • Do not get egg wash on the candy eyes.
  • If you wanted your mummies to be a bit sweeter, sprinkle with sugar prior to baking.
  • Mini candy eyeballs can be found in most cake decorating sections of your store.

    I know where I’m coming trick-or-treating this year! This pumpkin mummy hand pies are so cute! I know Robbie would be all about these. Actually, in true 3-year-old fashion, he would be skeptical at first, but the fact that it has googly eyes would be a game changer in the end. haha! Love this idea, Kathy!
