Take-out Tuesday, Ham & Cheese Pumpkin Pies

Have you caught pumpkin fever?

Pumpkins and Apples

I always get a serious case of it every fall  😷


You just can’t have too many pumpkins!

We’re going to make some “pumpkin pies” today inspired by  Cranberry Pecan Pie Crust Leaves from Home is Where the Boat is.  See Mary’s beautiful leaves here


Thin the crust by carefully rolling it out {I cut it in half to make a smaller batch}


Sprinkle half of dough with ham and cheese and spread the other half with mayonnaise or mustard


This helps hold the filling in place while cutting


Place the dough mayonnaise side down on top of the ham and cheese and cut out shapes with a cookie cutter, biscuit cutter or knife


Use the tines of a fork to enclose filling and seal edges


Re-roll the scraps and cut them into shapes too


They won’t have as much ham and cheese, but they are still very tasty!


Brush the tops with beaten egg for a shiny golden finish


the oozing edges are the best part!


Thursday I will be sharing the salad and pumpkin dressing that goes with these tasty pumpkins πŸ˜‹

    I’m so enjoying seeing your pumpkin painting as the back drop for your posts. It’s beautiful! I’ve enjoyed catching up on reading your posts. (Sorry I’ve gotten behind.) Anyway, I’m a little pumpkin crazy with real pumpkins because they’re so cheap at Wally World this year. Your pumpkin table decor is fabulous. πŸ™‚
