Pumpkin Chocolate Hand Pies

Oh, how I love fall baking! The amazing aroma that fills our home and all the yumminess that fills our tummies makes me want it to be fall year-round.

We have a few fall festivities coming up where I volunteered to bring pie. I love pie, but serving it to a large crowd, including lots of kiddos, can be a bit tricky. Someone ends up shoveling a piece out of the pie plate and the whole pie turns into more of a cobbler than nice pretty slices. Not a big deal, but kind of a pain, since pie is supposed to be in one piece.

Instead of me having to cut and serve slices during the party, I decided to bring these handy hand pies instead!

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • ⅓ cup canned pumpkin pie filling
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 large egg mixed with 1 teaspoon water, for brushing on pies
  • white sparkling sugar, for sprinkling
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until smooth. Add the flour and pumpkin pie spice and beat until crumbly. Add the water and beat until a thick, moist dough forms and sticks to the paddle.
  3. With well-floured hands, form the dough into a ball on a well-floured surface. Roll dough to ¼-inch thick and cut into pumpkin shapes with a medium-sized pumpkin cookie cutter. Repeat rolling dough until you have 24 pumpkin-shaped pie crusts.
  4. Place 12 of the crusts upside down on the prepared baking sheets. Scoop a heaping teaspoon of pumpkin pie filling into the center of each pumpkin crust and top with about 8 chocolate chips. Place another pumpkin crust on top of the filling and press down around the edges to make sure the two crusts are aligned with each other. Use a fork to seal around the edges of each hand pies.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and 1 teaspoon cold water. Brush egg wash onto the top of each pumpkin hand pie and sprinkle generously with white sparkling sugar.
  6. Bake for 14-16 minutes or until hand pies are golden brown.
