  • 1 sheet thawed vegan puff pastry
  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup Unsweetened Soymilk
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Pinch of salt

Pecan topping

  • 2/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt

Maple glaze

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar sifted
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Unsweetened Soymilk


  • Preheat oven to 400F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Lay puff pastry out and cut it into 12 squares/rectangles, or use fall cookie cutters like I did, if you're feeling fancy. Arrange them on the baking sheet, at least 1-inch apart.
  • With a knife, lightly score a line, 1/4-inch away from the sides, along each side. This will help the pastry to rise around the filling.
  • In a mixing bowl, stir pumpkin puree, soymilk, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, lemon juice, and salt, until combined. Taste and adjust spices to your liking, if necessary.
  • Place a few spoonfuls of filling onto each piece of puff pastry, within the frame you scored. In a small mixing bowl, stir pecans, maple syrup, vanilla and salt together. Top each pastry with sweetened pecans.
  • Place pastries in oven, and bake for 20 minutes, or until the puff pastry has risen and is golden brown. While those are baking, in a small bowl, whisk powdered sugar, maple syrup and soymilk together, until smooth. Set aside.
  • Once pastries are baked, wait at least 10 minutes for them to cool; then drizzle with glaze. Wait longer if you want to serve them at room temperature. Enjoy!
