cookie filling

pie crust cut outs

Use a round cutter to cut out circles from the pie crust. This one was about 3 inches.

Cut out as many as you can. Roll out the leftover scraps and cut as many as you can. We were able to get around 24 cookies.

Use a smaller cutter (about 2.5 inches) to cut the cookies again. This is how we will make the sides of the cookies and give them an edge.

To do this: lay out the larger rounded cookies, and top them with the egg wash mix (egg and water), then set the edges on top. Brush with a coat of egg wash.

Equipment

  • 3 inch round cutter
  • 2.5 inch round cutter

Ingredients

  • 2 premade pie crusts
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1 egg + 1 tablespoon water

  • Whisk the pumpkin, evaporated milk, egg, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves together.
  • Carefully unroll the pie crusts.  Using a 3 inch round cutter (preferably one with rounded edges), cut out as many pieces as possible.  Save the scraps and reroll as many times as possible to get the most amount of rounds. 
  • Using a 2.5 or similar size round cutter, remove the center out of half the pie crust rounds.  Save those scraps and reroll again until all the dough has been used.
  • Layout the full rounds as the bottom piece on the prepared parchment.
  • In a small bowl, combine the egg and water to create the egg wash.  Using a pastry brush, lightly brush the entire surface of the pie crust.
  • Top with the remaining pie crust outer edge pieces and use the egg wash to secure the pieces together.  Brush the top pieces with a light coat of egg wash.
  • Spoon about a teaspoon of the pumpkin mixture into the center of each pie cookie.
  • Bake 12-15 minutes or until the edges are just beginning to brown
