Filled with a light and fluffy pumpkin whipped cream, there’s nothing spooky about these Puff Pastry Pumpkins! They’re just plain delicious!
There’s no time like the present to get out your pumpkin shaped cookie cutters to make a batch of these delectable cuties. Filled with pumpkin whipped cream (yes, you heard that correctly) these Puff Pastry Pumpkin tarts are an indulgent holiday treat that will make your kids SO excited! Make these pumpkin shaped treats for your fall parties or add a jack o’lantern chocolate chip face and have them for Halloween!
I made this recipe and my family was over the moon! Thankfully, all you have to do in our house is mention the words whipped cream and all three of my kids are hooked. Chloe actually goes into a full body, eye rolling, twirly daze as if she’s become possessed — and that’s before she’s even had any. Whipped cream can do that to a kid I suppose.
What’s fun about these this puff pastries is that you can cut then into any shape for any theme you may want! Use a leaf shaped cookie cutter for fall, ghost shaped for Halloween or heart shaped for Valentine’s day and have an appropriately themed treat for any occasion on your calendar!
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to come up with recipes for. There are so many fun ways to do spooky treats that aren’t filled with the crazy amounts of sugar that kids normally get on Halloween.
