The Best Pumpkin Pie Turnovers
If you want to change up your Thanksgiving dessert this year or if you just want to try something fun, these Pumpkin Pie turnovers are just the thing and they taste great. In this video tutorial, I make them small, like little mini turnovers but you can make them any size you want. It doesn’t matter if you like to cook down a fresh a pumpkin and make these from scratch or if prefer to use a can of Pumpkin Puree. Either way, you’re going to need basic Pumpkin Pie Ingredients, listed down below, to get this recipe started.
Pumpkin Pie Turnovers Experience
My Experience with Turnovers is personal. When I was a child, I was babysat by a family that owned an A&W shop that went belly up. I stayed good friends with their son for years and eventually they got back on their feet and bought a bakery. They delivered bread to local restaurants, sold all kinds of desserts, cakes, pies, donuts and of course Turnovers. And just like the Poor Man’s Gourmet Kitchen, they didn’t care too much for waste. So anything left over would often find its way home. It wasn’t often, but sometimes my friends would offer me a slice here or there. But, my absolute favorite was the turnovers. I’m not sure they ever made Pumpkin Pie Turnovers, per say but I sure had my fair share of Apple, Lemon and Raspberry.
Be sure to check out my Pumpkin Pie Milkshake. It’s so good and easy to make. You can even use leftover pumpkin pie as the base.
