Easy Pumpkin Handpie Recipe

Nope not a baker but pumpkin is my favorite and these are super simple. 
These are a premade crust in the dairy case and easy filling mixture,
Not complicated using a  4 inch round large cookie cutter and a fork to seal the edges!
You won't be disappointed!

Fill rounds fold over and crimp with a fork not pretty but they taste great!

2- Packages of two crust pie dough from your grocery dairy case
1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
1/4 cup ground pecans
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon each nutmeg, ginger
1 teaspoon vanilla
dash salt

 Cinnamon and Sugar
more heavy cream

Roll dough cut into 4 inch rounds.  Mix the puree with cream, nuts, vanilla, salt and spices.
Place 1 teaspoon of mixture on dough fold over like a half moon. Crimp with fork on the edges.  Brush with cream and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.  Bake on heated oven of 375 degrees for 30 minutes or till brown.
