Mummy Sausage & Pumpkin Pies - Recipe.

 We always like to do a little baking in the run up to Halloween and this year is no different. It is a bonus that it's half term and that gives us more time to have some fun in the kitchen. Recently I was sent this recipe as a suggestion to try, Mummy Sausage & Pumpkin Pies.

Mummy Sausage & Pumpkin Pies

Individually baked pies with puff pastry bandages and edible eyes, filled with a tasty, seasonal combination of sausage and pumpkin purée for a savoury option at Halloween. Made with only 9 ingredients and just 6 pieces of kitchen equipment. Ideal for entertaining guests big or small.

Mummy Sausage & Pumpkin Pies
Makes 9 portions

350g plain flour
175g salted butter, cubed
4 tbsp cold water
350g sausage meat
150g pumpkin purée
1 tsp dried sage
½ tsp salt
1 egg
18 edible eyes

Mixing bowl
Lined baking tray
Rolling pin

Preheat the oven to 200°C (fan).

In the large mixing bowl, combine the flour and butter by rubbing it together between your fingertips, until a crumb consistency is achieved. Add the water and bring together with your hands to form a pastry dough. Wrap the dough in cling film and pop in the freezer to rest while you make the filling.

Wash up the mixing bowl then use it to combine the sausage meat, pumpkin purée, sage and salt. Set to one side.

Take the dough out of the freezer and, on a lightly floured surface, roll it out into a large rectangle (2-3mm thickness) then portion into 12 smaller rectangles.

Place 9 of the pastry rectangles onto the tray and spoon the sausage filling into the centre of each one leaving an index finger width border around every edge.

Beat the egg, then use your finger to egg wash the edges of each pie.

Cut the remaining 3 rectangles into 1 cm strips and lay them over the filling of each pie, using the egg washed edges to stick them. Trim if necessary.

Use your finger to egg wash the strips then bake the pies for 20-25 minutes until golden. Allow to cool slightly before placing two edible eyes on each one and serving. They can also be enjoyed cold.

Will you be cooking up anything spooky in the kitchen in the run up to Halloween?
