Halloween mummy pies are a fun and easy way to make spooky Halloween party food! You can make them with just 3 ingredients - they're blood-curdling delicious!
These 'mummies' are a fun way to get in the halloween spirit.
They're versatile, adaptable and so easy to make! I added edible eyes to make them fun.
Halloween mummy pies are perfect if you're looking for easy Halloween recipes for kids.
They're simple and make for a bloodcurdling party. My kids instantly tucked into them with glee.
I've loved Halloween since I was a little girl. My sisters and I decorated the house and cooked spooky recipes with my mum and dad.
We would stuff clothes to look like a witch and sit her on the front porch, then fill bowls with wet spaghetti and grapes as 'brains' and 'eyeballs' to trick any treaters.
I grew up in Canada where Halloween is a BIG DEAL.
My parents weren't keen on us trick or treating, so we would always have huge parties. The table would be spread with an epic eerie buffet and spooky tunes.
Friends would arrive in all manner of fancy dress and we would party and play games into the night.
I have such wonderful, joyful, spoooky memories of childhood Halloweens. I hope my kids get the same lifelong memories too.
Part of that is preparation. Making crafts to decorate the house, baking treats like these fun Mummies and choosing or making our costumes.
I hope you'll make some memories with this recipe too.
Step by step tutorial
It's really easy to make mummy hand pies.
With only 3 ingredients, you can quickly cut the pastry into shapes and turn them into quick and easy Halloween treats! Pop them in the oven and they puff up and get full of oozy raspberry 'blood'.
But - you can just use strawberry jam instead!
Cut one sheet into 6 equal-sized squares, then cut each square in half to make 12 rectangles.
Cut the other sheet of pastry into thin strips.
Spoon the raspberry jam onto the rectangles, avoiding the outer edge.
Add dough strips decoratively to look like mummies, and gently press the edges to seal.
Brush with the milk and bake for 20 minutes, or until golden. Serve warm or cold and decorate with edible eyes.
Store-bought puff pastry (check for vegan and/or gluten free if required) Or make your own puff pastry.
Raspberry Jam (or strawberry)
Milk (for brushing). Use dairy free if vegan.
Optional: Edible candy eyes make them extra spooky (and cute)
Make savoury mummy pies by adding tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese.
Vegan? Check your pastry, but many are naturally vegan. Also check the edible eyes to see if they're vegan.
Gluten free? Use gluten free store-bought pastry, or make your own!
