Cinnamon Pumpkin Pie Poppers – Have you ever made a delicious flop? How about a gorgeous mistake? Admittedly, most of my misses in the kitchen are not delicious. Nor are they usually even remotely gorgeous.

There are exceptions to every rule and I’m here to say that these Cinnamon Pumpkin Pie Poppers were both delicious and gorgeous, if I may be so bold to say.

About these

I’m far from a professional baker. I’ve been around enough of them to know better. That said, I don’t have many misses in the kitchen. Not major, inedible, unusable ones.

This recipe, which started as something else, met all three criteria. Call it a disaster of the trifecta order.

Fortunately, it ended at the other end of the culinary spectrum : with these cinnamon pumpkin pie poppers.  A gorgeous mistake, of sorts.

I suppose it’s hard to screw up too badly with anything that ends up tasting like a pumpkin pie. When it’s your own personal bite size pumpkin pie, even better.

These Cinnamon Pumpkin Pie Poppers took me completely by surprise. As an alternative to what I originally intended, I was only hoping they would be satisfactory to share with you, our reader.

Turns out, they are not only satisfactory, they are something that I want you to try.

Easy, yet elegant and fancy enough for a party or special event, they are also super simple to make.

A sheet or two of some store-bought puff pastry, a can of packed pumpkin, along a few other ordinary pantry staples and a muffin pan; that’s all it takes!

If all of my flops in the kitchen turned out this wonderful, I would take my kitchen endeavors far less seriously.

But you don’t need to be a kid to love these little pumpkin poppers. Give them a try and let me  know if you agree.  -Dan
