Make your very own delicious Hogwarts treat with this easy to follow instructable!
Step 1: What You Will Need
You will need the following for the pasty crust:
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons butter, cut into chunks
4 tablespoons ice water
You will need the following for the filling:
1 cup canned pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling
1/4 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
You will also need:
pastry cutter (optional)
Step 2: Make the Crust
Place the flour, sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl. Whisk together until blended. Scatter the chunks of butter in the flour mixture and use a pastry cutter or your hands to combine. Continue rubbing the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse yellow meal, with no white powdery bits remaining.
Add 4 tablespoons of water over the mixture. Toss the mixture together with a spatula until it starts clumping together. If it's too dry, add another tablespoon of water.
Gather the dough into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Step 3: Make the Filling
Combine the pumpkin, sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Mix well. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Step 4: Making the Pasties
Roll out the dough 1/8 inch thick on a floured cutting board. Use a saucer or a small bowl to cut out 6 inch circles. Put 2 tablespoons of filling on each circle of dough. Fold over like a taco and crimp the edges together with a fork. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 30 minutes or until brown.
