Recipe Info

Curious about what pumpkin pasties from the “Harry Potter” series taste like? This is a fun take on the treat enjoyed by the characters in the books! There are many Hogwarts recipes and treats mentioned in the Harry Potter books, and we just have our imaginations to rely on when it comes to the taste of things (mmm…butterbeer). We don’t even know for sure if the pumpkin pasties Harry Potter enjoys with his friends are sweet or savory. I personally think they’re sweet because they’re sold on the Honeydukes Express which is the Harry Potter sweet trolley the kids buy sweets from on their trips to and from Hogwarts.

2 tablespoon milk
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 egg, room temperature
1 cup pumpkin puree
3 tablespoons brown sugar, see note below
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 sheet puff pastry

Preheat oven to 375° F (190° C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
Make the egg wash: Add the milk, egg, and the maple syrup to a small bowl and mix, with a whisk, to combine. Set aside.
Make the Filling: Add pumpkin puree, coconut sugar, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, and ground nutmeg to a bowl and mix until combined. Set aside.
Roll out sheet puff pastry sheet. Using a round cutter, cut out 8 circles. (You may also cut the dough into 4 even squares, if you prefer rectangle pasties) Place even amounts of the pumpkin mix on one side of each circle and fold the other side over to cover.
Crimp the edges of each pasty with a fork to seal.
Place each pumpkin pasty on the parchment lined baking sheet. Using a sharp knife, cut the Harry Potter scar shape into the middle of each pasty. Brush the tops of each pasty with the egg wash.
Bake for 20 minutes, until golden. Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack.

Recipe Notes:
3 tablespoons of sugar is perfect for me, but if you prefer for this treat to be a little sweeter, after mixing the sugar and spices into the pumpkin puree, taste to see if it’s sweet enough for you. Add a little more sugar for more sweetness, if needed.
These pumpkin pasties are best when served the same day while they still have some crispness to them.
