These pumpkin spice twists are an easy pastry to whip up, and the portions are pretty big, so they are easily shareable!
Recipe: Pumpkin Twists
- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoons water
- 4 sheets of puff pastry, thawed
- 1 cup canned plain pumpkin
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and water, set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together pumpkin, sugar and pumpkin pie spice. Unfold puff pastry sheets, dividing pumpkin mixture evenly onto each piece of the pastry. Spread it into an even layer. Starting at one end, roll the pastry forming a log. Using a sharp knife, cut a line down the center of the log, leaving 1 inch at the top connected. Twist the two pieces together, making sure the pumpkin filling sides face up. Form the twisted pastry into a circle by connecting the two ends together. Continue until all pastries have been formed. Brush the pastries lightly with the egg wash, and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes.
