Pumpkin Butter Hand Pies with Blahnik Baker @hamiltonbeach

One of my favorite things about the fall, besides the beautiful foliage and instant need to wear boots, is the return of comfort foods and pies. I love baking pies, and they are one of the best comfort foods. I love the way they make my kitchen smell when they are in the oven. It gets the whole house excited!

To capture the essence of fall and ensure I saved up (ahem, bottled up) some of the best parts, I made homemade pumpkin butter in my slow cooker this year. It’s the easiest recipe you will find and so delicious. Spiced pumpkin puree (fresh or canned) is combined with brown sugar and apple cider. Simmer on low for 5 hours and viola! Lovely pumpkin butter that you can bottle up to enjoy during the predicted long winter.

Pumpkin butter is very versatile. You can enjoy it as a spread on your morning toast, a dip for your snacking apples or butter for dinner rolls. Or in my case, use it as pie filling!

For these pumpkin hand pies I am sharing today, I used my homemade pumpkin butter as filling instead of traditional pumpkin pie filling. These hand pies are made of a buttery, flaky crust and are filled with a lightly spiced and sweet pumpkin butter filling to give you the perfect bite-sized pie. I hope you enjoy it!

Pumpkin Butter Hand Pies
YIELDS: 12 servings

For pumpkin butter
1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin puree
½ cup apple cider (or apple juice)
¾ cup light brown sugar
½ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch ground cloves
For Hand Pies
Pie Crust
Ice cold water
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
14 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
1 egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon milk for egg wash
Cinnamon and Turbinado sugar for sprinkling
For Pumpkin Butter
Set your slow cooker to LOW. Combine all the ingredients in your slow cooker and stir thoroughly to combine. Cook for 5 hours, stirring occasionally, until pumpkin butter is thick.
Transfer pumpkin butter to a mason jar and let cool. Store in refrigerator.
For Hand Pies
Prepare ½ cup ice-cold water and keep in fridge. In a food processor, pulse flour, sugar and salt. Add in half of the butter and pulse for 30 seconds. Add in the rest of butter and pulse until the mixture looks like coarse meal. Sprinkle about 6 tablespoons cold water over mixture and pulse until dough comes together in clumps. If dry, add a little bit more water (1 teaspoon at a time) until dough comes together.
Remove dough from processor and pat into a disk. Wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for at least an hour or overnight. The dough can be made up to 3 days ahead. Keep chilled. Let stand at room temperature a few minutes before rolling out.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to a large circle. Using a 2 or 3-inch round biscuit cutter, cut out at least 24 circles. You will need to roll the extra dough to cut out more circles.
Place 6 dough circles on each prepared baking sheet. Add about a tablespoon of pumpkin butter to the center of each circle. Place another dough circle on top and using your fingers press together to seal. Use a fork to crimp the edges.
In a small bowl, whisk together egg and one tablespoon of milk. Brush the top of dough with egg wash. Sprinkle with cinnamon and turbinado sugar.
Bake for 20-22 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool on baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a serving platter.

Pumpkin Donuts from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

Fall is here and the local pumpkin patches are full of families searching for just the right jack-o-lantern to decorate the front porch. A chill in the air makes you crave hot beverages and those favorite fall flavors like cinnamon, apples and – of course – pumpkin.

Combining the tastes of fall, pumpkin donuts make a delicious breakfast or dessert topped with ice cream and perhaps a drizzle of caramel. Making your own donuts does take some effort, but when you bite into this warm treat covered in cinnamon-sugar, you’ll be rewarded. We make them in a deep fryer to ensure a crisp, even coating and a soft interior.

These donuts are cake-style, meaning you won’t have to wait for the dough to rise and you can satisfy your donut craving even sooner. The dough comes together very quickly, and after a quick rest in the refrigerator, they’re ready to roll. Kids love to help roll out dough and cut out donut shapes. Save the donut holes and fry them last. They are delicious little leftovers – or a secret reward for the hungry cook!

Using the deep fryer, donuts take just two minutes to cook. Cool them on a wire rack lined with paper towels. A quick shake in a resealable plastic bag of cinnamon sugar completes the process. Grab a mug of hot cider and enjoy!
