These Homemade Pop Tarts with Pumpkin and Brown Sugar are buttery and flaky filled with a sweet and delicious Pumpkin Filling with Brown Sugar.


  • ½ c. pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. Pumpkin pie spice
  • ⅛ tsp. Salt
  • c. sugar
  • ½ c. lite brown sugar
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1 tbsp. Sugar
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • 2 sticks butter, chilled and cubed
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp. Milk
  • 1 c. powdered sugar
  • ½ tbsp. Maple extract
  • ½ tbsp. Vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ tbsp. Milk


  1. Using a food processor, combine the flour, sugar, salt, butter, egg, and milk and pulse until dough comes together. If you don’t have a food processor, you can combine the ingredients in a bowl and use a fork or pastry cutter to bring the ingredients together. Once the dough has come together, wrap in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for 30 minutes or, if in a hurry, 15 minutes in freezer.
  2. Separate the dough into two balls. Turn the dough onto a floured surface and roll the dough out into a long rectangle, not too thin. Try to mimic the same size of the rectangle with the other dough ball. Once the dough is rolled out, cut into 6-8 rectangles using a pizza cutter.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  4. Take a spoonful of the pumpkin mixture and spread in the middle of the squares. Avoid spreading out to the edges. Sprinkle some of the brown sugar on top of the pumpkin mixture of one of the squares; take another square and carefully place on top of a square; and finally use the edge of a fork and seal the edge. Place on top of a baking sheet that is lined with a silicon mat or parchment paper. Continue until all squares have been made. Use the fork and poke 2 sets of holes in the tops of the tarts.
  5. Place in the oven for 20-25 minutes, just until slightly golden golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  6. In a separate small bowl, mix the powdered sugar, maple and vanilla extracts, and milk. Mix until smooth and spoon on top of the tarts and allow to set then serve!
