How far in advance can I make these Handheld Pies?

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

Reheating Side Note: The marshmallow and chocolate chip eyes will probably melt during the reheating process

What Else Can I Fill Pastry Handheld Pies With?

  • chocolate – melt chocolate chips and add to the center
  • apple pie filling
  • pumpkin pie filling – you’ll want to add other ingredients to the filling like evaporated milk and spices before making it into a handheld pie
  • fruit jam
  • ham and cheese
  • sausage and cheese
  • hamburger meat – seasoned to make an empanada
  • pie fillings – various

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
