Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 6
  • 15 ounces pumpkin (I used canned pumpkin)
  • ½ cup Dixie Crystals sugar, plus 2-3 tablespoons for sprinkling
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 egg
  • 2 sheets puff pastry
  1. First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. If your puff pastry is frozen, allow it to sit at room temperature until it is soft (but still cold).
  3. To create the pumpkin pie filling, add the pumpkin, Dixie Crystals sugar, and the pumpkin pie spice into a medium bowl. Beat for about 30 seconds until fully combined. Set aside.
  4. Meanwhile, set out a sheet of puff pastry on a working surface. Using a sharp knife, cut out a coffin shape (mine were about 6 inches long and 3 inches wide). If desired, you can create a stencil with wax paper - draw a coffin shape on the wax paper, set the paper on top of your puff pastry sheet (the side you drew on facing up so it doesn't touch the pastry), and then use a toothpick to poke holes around the stencil outline. Use the dots as a "connect the dots" guide to cut through with a sharp knife. Make sure to create an even number of coffin shapes, as you need a top and a bottom for each.
  5. For the top half of the coffins, use the sharp knife to cut a cross shape in the top center of the pastry (if desired). Transfer the coffin shapes to a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  6. Next, scoop about 2-3 tablespoons of the pumpkin pie filling on to the bottom of the coffin pastry sheets. Spread evenly, leaving about a ¼ inch border around the edge.
  7. Place the coffin top evenly on the bottom with the filling. Use the tines of a fork to gently press around the edges to seal the pastry together.
  8. Crack the egg into a small dish and whisk it. Use a pastry brush to brush the egg wash over the tops of the coffin pastries. Then, add a generous sprinkle of Dixie Crystals sugar over the top of the egg washed pastries.
  9. Place the pumpkin pie coffins in the oven for about 18-20 minutes, until the puff pastry is fluffy and golden brown. Remove from the oven, set on a rack to cool for at least 10 minutes before serving. Serve as-is or with a dollop of whipped cream. Enjoy!
