Pumpkin Pasties by Sophie

Pumpkin Pasties are one of the many treats that were served on board the Hogwarts Express. However, Sophie's version here is probably a bit more savory than what Harry and his friends ate.

  • 16 oz. pumpkin skinned, seeded
  • 2 potatoes large
  • 1 onion large, diced
  • 1 tsp. chives chopped
  • 2 tsp. soy sauce (to taste)
  • 2 tsp. hoisin sauce (to taste)


  • 2 sheets puff pastry dough

Egg Wash

  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp. water



  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Fill a pot of water to boil on the stove.
  • Clean and peel potatoes. Chop potatoes and pumpkin into rough 2–3 cm cubes. Move cubes to boiling water. Return pot to boil and cook for 15–20. Cubes should be tender.
  • Gently fry diced onion in a small amount of oil until it is soft and slightly browned (but not caramelized).
  • Drain the potato and pumpkin. Mash them until they form a smooth paste uing a potato masher. Mix in fried onion and chives.
  • Add hoisin sauce and soy sauce to taste. Set filling aside.

Egg Wash

  • Whisk the egg and water together. Set aside.

Building & Baking

  • Cut 3" rounds out of pastry sheets. Scoop about 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of filling onto each piece of pastry. Brush egg wash around the edge of each round and fold in half. Use a fork to crimp the edges.
  • Bake pasties for 25 minutes, until the outside is golden and flaky.


  • Potato can be replaced with pumpkin if preferred. Use 5 ounces pumpkin for each large potato.
  • This recipe may yield more filling than needed. Increase the number of puff pastry sheets as required.
