These mini Halloween pumpkin pies are so good and amazingly easy to make. All you need is two ingredients. Yes, just two!
For Halloween, I love making easy and fun treats with my kids. Especially when it starts to get cold outside, we like to find more activities indoors and baking is one of our favorites.
Mini Apple Pumpkin Pies
All you are going to need is a can of apple filling and a pre-made pie crust. Oh, and a pumpkin shaped cookie cutter.
How To Make Halloween Hand Pies
To make these, just roll out your pie crust onto a sheet of wax paper. The package will tell you to let the dough thaw before you use it, but since you need to work with it a bit, you’ll want it to be fresh out of the fridge. It’s easier if it has a bit of firmness.
Next, cut out an even amount of pumpkin shapes with a cookie cutter.
On half of them the pumpkins, cut a face out with a knife. Pie crust is actually super easy to work with so just freehand draw.
You can do a classic pumpkin face or try out Jack Skellington. Personally, I liked the Nightmare Before Christmas face better than the regular jack-o-lantern.
Place the bottom layer down first on an ungreased baking sheet.
Scoop a tablespoon of pie filling onto the bottom. Hint: it’s best if you don’t have a giant chunk of apple. If need be, cut the chunks into smaller, more bite-sized pieces.
Lay the face piece of pie crust on top and press around the edges with a fork.
Cook these on 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. The exact time depends on what size cookie cutter you have used. The smaller, the less time they need, obvi.
Just watch them and pull them out when the outer edge starts browning.
My favorite is the Jack Skellington face and was surprisingly so easy to make! I do not have a knack for drawing, I promise.
These little mini pies are so much fun and taste delicious. They fit right into your hand.
I’m going to try it next time with cherry pie filling. Yum!
