Pumpkin Spice Hand Pies

SO the other day we wanted to make some pastries, and pumpkin was on the mind. This is what we came up with Pumpkin Spice Hand Pies! Since we had just made something pumpkin we had pumpkin puree left over, and decided we would make up a recipe on the spot. It actually turned out great! We used store bought pastry sheets, Pepperidge Farm was what our store had on hand though you can use any ol’ brand of pastry sheet to make these. Or your own pastry sheets if you’ve got the time to do that (send me a recipe??)

We cut the sheets into small strips about the size of your hand after we had rolled out the sheets to a fine thin line. With the sheet in one hand and the pumpkin mix next to you add a small amount of the pumpkin and roll it up! Make sure you put the edge of the sheet down on your baking sheet when you make these or it will open up into a blob when you bake. As you can see from the pictures the pastry sheets really like to puff up!
