It was 60 degrees (aka fall weather) when I went out to go grocery shopping so I decided it’s fall which means pumpkin spice everything.



  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon water

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves

  • 1 sheet of puff pastry at room temperature

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Whisk together the egg and water in a small bowl and set aside.

Step 2: In a small bowl, mix the pumpkin puree, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves until smooth.

Step 3: Slide the puff pastry into four equal size rectangles. Using a rolling pin, roll out each piece of puff pastry until approximately 5”x6”.

Step 4: Evenly spread 1 1/2 tablespoons of pumpkin mixture over the entirety of each piece of puff pastry and roll up on the shorter size (so the roll should be approximately 5” long).

Step 5: Use the image below for reference for the next steps. Slide the roll down the middle on the seam leaving 1 centimeter at the end uncut. Twist each piece to the outside so the inside of the roll is facing out. Twist together the two sides and them form into a circle.

Step 6: Place each pastry on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and brush on the egg mixture.

Step 7: Bake for 25-35 minutes until golden brown, then remove from the oven and eat fresh.
