Halloween Puff Pastry Pumpkins

3035 Min

Fancy something sweet at Halloween? Crispy puff pastry pumpkins will cast a spell over children and grown-ups alike. Apples flavored with the Apple Strudel Seasoning Mix provide a juicy filling that is perfect for fall. This combination makes for the perfect Halloween snack!

Ingredients 4 Portions


  1. 1

    First peel the apples, remove the cores and finely grate. Then add the grated apples to a large bowl and mix with half a pouch of Kotányi Apple Strudel Seasoning Mix.

  2. 2

    Stir in the granulated sugar and the juice of a lemon and allow to infuse. Meanwhile, roll out the puff pastry and use either a pumpkin-shaped cookie cutter or a home-made template to punch or cut pumpkins out of the dough. A face should be cut into the side that faces upward, but there is no need to do this on the underside.

  3. 3

    Crack the organic egg. Now spread some of the apple mixture in the center of the pastry halves that do not have a face. Brush round the edge with some beaten egg, place the pastry halves that have a face on top and use a fork to press the edges down firmly. Now brush egg across the top too.

  4. 4

    Now place the pumpkins on a baking tray lined with baking parchment and bake for 15 minutes at 200 °C.

  5. 5

    Allow to cool before serving.
