harry potter pumpkin pasties

( okay, okay this is not my picture. I got it here.
No offense Land O' Lakes, my recipe is much better......)
In honor of Thanksgiving and Harry Potter opening weekend I'm sharing
an incredibly easy and seriously good treat.
I have never been a fan of traditional pie crust...I know, I know) but LOVE pumpkin pie filling.
So this is the best fix to pumpkin pie EVER!!

1 (18 ounce) package of pre-made cookie dough
1 (28 ounce) can pumpkin pie filling
3 tablespoons powdered sugar or whipped cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice cookie dough into 12-18 slices. Spray muffin tins with Pam and place sough in tins, making sure some of the dough goes up the sides. Fill each cup with pumpkin pie filling. Bake 20-25 minutes. Remove and let cool. Sprinkle with powdered sugar or whipped cream.

**I think its also fun to make these in mini-cupcake pans too.**


Did you say sweetened condensed milk?? I'm in.
