VEGETARIAN SAVORY PUMPKIN PASTIES RECIPE – FOOD.COM
Total time: 55 minutes
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 35 minutes
Yield: 15 pasties, 3 serving(s)
|2 cups pumpkin puree|
|2 tablespoons plain yogurt (or sour cream)|
|2 tablespoons olive oil|
|1 small onion, finely chopped|
|1 garlic clove, crushed (1 tsp minced garlic)|
|1/4 cup cheese, shredded (your choice!)|
|1 tablespoon black sesame seed|
|2 teaspoons sage, shredded|
|1/2 teaspoon thyme (fresh would be optimal but I use dry)|
|1 (15 ounce) package pillsbury ready-made pastry crust|
|1 egg, beaten (for brushing)|
- In a skillet, heat the oil and brown the onion and garlic together until soft and translucent.
- In a mixing bowl, mix with the pumpkin and the browned onion together.
- Whisk in the egg and yogurt/sour cream to give it a nice creamy consistency.
- Whisk in the remaining ingredients.
- Preheat the oven to 350F and while it’s preheating, roll out the pastry crust and use a biscuit cutter, 5-oz ramekin, or the outline of a can to cut circles.
- Grease a cookie sheet with cooking spray and line the circles up on them, spacing them out evenly.
- Put about a rounded tablespoon-ful of pasty mixture into each circle.
- Brush the edges with egg white, fold the pastry with your fingers to form semi-circles, sealing them, and crimp the edges down with a fork.
- Brush the outsides of each sealed pasty with egg white.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.
- Let cool on a wire rack for about 5-10 minutes prior to eating. They are delicious with some herbed sour cream. I also like them with guacamole.

How do you make pumpkin pasties at home?
Add baked pumpkin to cooked onion and combine. Season to taste. Set aside to cool. Fill each pastry circle with 1 heaped tablespoon of filling. Do not overfill or your pastie will leak when baking. Brush a small amount of egg wash around the edge of half the pastry circle. Fold over to seal and crimp in a decorative pattern with a fork.

What kind of crust do you use for pumpkin pasties?
These pumpkin pasties are a sweet variation, filled with a pumpkin pie type filling and topped with a crunchy sugar crust. For this recipe, you’ll need two pie crusts. Store bought or homemade pie crust can be used for this recipe, as long as you have enough dough for two pie crusts total.
What does pumpkin pie pastry taste like?
These Pumpkin Pasties are a sweet pastry with a pumpkin-pie like filling. I made them with a little cream cheese to add some creaminess and a slightly thicker consistency. They taste just like the Pumpkin Pasties you get at Honeydukes.
