Easy pumpkin puff pastry parcels

    1 hour

    These parcels are easy to do, and everyone I've made them for has loved them. I use shop-bought puff pastry for the convenience. I also like a lot of spices, but you can cut back if you don't.

    This is great I haden't ever thought to do a turnover with pumpkin. My husband thought it was good but asked me to make some frosting for the rest and then he thought they were great. I agree with him juts a little powdered sugar forsting drizzled on was very good thanks for the recipe!  -  21 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These are delicious! My father and I made them yesterday to test them out for a possible Thanksgiving dessert. We gave some to our neighbors, some to my boyfriend's family, and kept some for ourselves. They were a hit with everyone! We did, however, use fresh pie pumpkin rather than canned pumpkin. And, as a little touch, we wet the tops of the turnovers and dipped them in some white sugar. They came out very little and cute. This recipe will definitely be made again.  -  23 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These are very tasty and not difficult to make. There are some points that need clarified, however. Make sure you flour the work surface before rolling out the pastry. This will keep it from sticking. Start with a Tablespoon of filling in the center of each square. Some filling is likely to escaqpe during baking, but that's par for the course with turnovers. These are delicious "as is", but I decided to top mine with a spiced maple glaze drizzle.  -  07 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
