I’ve been on a puff pastry kick lately. Somehow, I just recently discovered how easy it is to use and how deliciously flaky it gets. A few weeks ago, these Caramel Apple Puff Pastry Tarts were one the menu for dessert (multiple times in one week I’ll add). Of course with fall here now, I had to incorporate pumpkin into my next recipe using puff pastry.

I made turnovers this time. Inside the little triangle of puff pastry, is pumpkin filling that will remind you exactly of pumpkin pie. On top, I used a brown butter glaze, because not much can beat brown butter glaze. It’s worth the extra step of browning the butter.

In my small amounts of free time, I’ve been experimenting with creating videos of some of my recipes. If you remember my Red Velvet Cookies and Cream Bars from a while back, that was my first attempt at video. It’s a challenge and I like learning new things so I’ve been having fun.

I created a video for the Pumpkin Puff Pastry Turnovers so you can see how easy they are to make. The one thing that makes filming a recipe hard these days, is my little friend who is crawling around and getting into things. I mostly try to work on the videos while he is napping, but on this one he woke up right before I was finished. If I hadn’t added the music and stripped out the original sounds, you could have heard a little cry at the end. He doesn’t want to be left out.
