Make Ahead and Storage:

You can make these Halloween pies a couple of days in advance, but they are best when fresh and right out of the oven

Storage: Store leftover Halloween Pastries covered in the refrigerator for 2-3 days

Reheating: Reheat puff pastries in the oven for about 5 minutes or until heated through. You can also microwave them to heat them up

Tips and Tricks:

  • line your baking sheet with parchment paper to ensure even baking and catch any stray jam that might run off of the pastry while baking
  • fold the sides of your mummy with a short edging to prevent the jam from running
  • don’t overthink the mummy bandages. The more uneven they are, the better
  • do brush an egg wash over your pastry to get that golden brown color
  • do not add the eyes until your pastry is done baking

Ingredients:

  • puff pastry sheets – I found mine in the freezer aisle of my grocery store. It comes with 2 sheets that are folded up. You’ll unfold them and use the long strips of 3 to make your pies. You should get around 6 mummy pies
  • jam – I happened to have blackberry jam, but you can substitute it with your favorite jam flavor
  • large egg – this will be used to make an egg wash that you’ll brush onto the pastry before baking it
  • water – another ingredient in your egg wash
  • mini marshmallows – you’ll need one per mummy for the eyes
  • mini chocolate chips – you might need to dip these into the sticky jam so they will glue to your marshmallow
