A beautiful and tasty snack, perfect for dipping in the accompanying sweet cream cheese dip.



1 sheet puff pastry, cut into 9 squares


½ cup pureed pumpkin, canned

1 tablespoon butter

2-3 tablespoons *Pumpkin Spice Simple Syrup*


½ teaspoon flour 

For the cream cheese dip:


¼ cup confectioners sugar

¼ cup cream cheese

4 tablespoons heavy cream

dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ground cloves


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. On a flat surface, lay parchment paper then a sheet of puff pastry. Cut into 9 even squares. Place dough on a baking sheet.  In a small saucepan melt butter over low heat, add flour and whisk to combine. Turn off the stove before adding simple syrup and pumpkin; whisk until mixture is smooth; pumpkin should be slightly warmed but if your mixture is hot, let cool before the next step. 
  2. Place one tablespoon pumpkin mixture in the center of each square. Gently bring up the corners to meet the middle of the square. Brush with melted butter if desired. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.

For the cream cheese dip:

  1. Add all ingredients to a bowl. Using a hand mixer, blend until smooth.


Top the squares with chopped candied pecans
