Yes, yet another pumpkin recipe!
Trader Joe’s is selling pumpkin croissants this year. I want them. They are not vegan. Fine! I will make my own. Take that, Trader Joe’s!
I made a quickie version that is ridiculously fast, super satisfying, and a really fun fall breakfast. Or dessert!
1/4 sheet vegan puff pastry* (about 4×4 – a quarter of a typical size sheet)
1 T pumpkin puree
1/4 t pumpkin pie spice mix
1 T almond paste
*read the ingredients – a lot of puff pastry is made with vegetable shortening instead of butter, and is therefore vegan!
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Cube the almond paste, and mix it in a little bowl with the pumpkin puree and the spice mix. Put the filling in the middle of the puff pastry sheet and fold it in half into a triangle. Crimp the edges down with a fork. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes, until puffy and golden.
Seriously, they’re that easy. Just add coffee alongside 🙂
