Ingredients

Units Scale

Pop Tarts (Note: There will be a lot of extra filling so feel free to cut this recipe in half)

  • 2 pie crusts, store bought or homemade
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

Icing:

  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Optional sprinkle of cinnamon


Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Roll out both pie crusts into rectangles roughly 12"x6", then cut each of them into twelve small rectangles.
  3. Mix together the pumpkin puree, brown sugar, cinnamon, ground ginger, allspice and nutmeg
  4. Spoon roughly one tablespoon onto half of the pie crusts, top each with the other half and crimp the edges with a fork to seal up the tarts. Poke a small hole on top of each tart so steam can escape when baking. 
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
  6. Beat together the softened butter, brown sugar, powdered sugar, vanilla extract and salt until smooth and creamy.
  7. Spoon the brown sugar icing on top of each tart and finish with a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Notes

You can store these in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. 

Do not use the toaster to reheat them. You can microwave them for a few seconds, pop them in a warm oven or eat them cold straight out of the fridge!
