1-2tsppumpkin spicejust depends on the level of pumpkin spice you like
1eggfor egg wash
Spiced Sugar Glaze
1-2tbsmilk or wateradd more or less to get the right consistency
Thaw puff pastry according to package instructions
Preheat oven to 400 and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together pumpkin puree, cream cheese, powdered sugar, honey (or maple syrup), and pumpkin spice. Set to the side.
Roll out thawed puff pastry and lay flat on a cutting board or clean counter. Using a pizza cutter, cut puff pastry dough into 6 or 8 rectangles per sheet.
Place puff pastry rectangles onto parchment-lined cookie sheet. Place a dollop of filling onto one side of the dough and fold the other side over. Crimp edges well with a fork.
In a small dish, beat egg. Using a brush wipe egg mixture over puff pastries. Pop into the oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and extra puffy.
Allow to cool completely, about 20 minutes. Mix together spiced sugar glaze. Add a little milk or water at a time until you get the consistency you desire (I like the consistency to be a little thicker than maple syrup). Drizzle sugar glaze over the pumpkin turnovers and enjoy.
These are best served fresh and day-of. I did put them in the fridge for a few days and they were ok. Quality was not as fresh, but if you're just eating them and not serving guests, then whatever suits your fancy.
