Finally, it’s Halloween! If you still haven’t decided what are you going to make for your Halloween party, why not try these blackberry mummy pies?
These pies are perfect if you’re looking for an easy, last-minute Halloween recipe for kids because all you need is for the pie, puffy pastry sheet, jam, vegan egg wash and googly eyes, plus they are easy to make!
For the googly eyes, you can make your own or buy them in most baking shops and large supermarkets. By topping with googly eyes, it instantly turns everything fun and spooky!
Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan.
Sprinkle your worktop with a pinch of flour and gently lay out your puff pastry sheet.
Cut it into 4 rows widthwise, then divide the first 3 rows into 4 rows lengthwise. So you should have 12 rectangles plus 1 full row.
Keep 10 rectangles as the base of the pie and then cut the rest into 1cm width long strips as “mummy wraps”.
Place approximately 1 heaped teaspoon of jam onto the centre of a rectangle, spread evenly. Dip your finger in a bowl of water and gently wet the edge of the pastry.
I am using my homemade blackberry jam for this recipe, but feel free to replace it with any red coloured jam such as strawberry, raspberry, or red currant jam.
Cover it with a layer of “mummy wraps”. You may leave a small gap on one side for the googly eyes.
Trim off the excess pastry, and press the edges together with a fork to seal.
You got your first mummy done!!! And it is totally fine if you accidentally leave some “bloody” fingerprints on top. 👻💀☠️
Repeat the same process until you have 10 mummies.
You may run out of the “mummy wraps” but you can re-roll the trimmings to make more.
Transfer all mummies onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Brush each mummy with aquafaba.
Aquafaba is the viscous water in which legume seeds such as chickpeas have been cooked. You can replace it with soy or almond milk if you don’t have it.
Bake for 12-14 minutes until golden. You may want to rotate the baking tray in the middle to ensure all mummies bake evenly.
Remove the mummies from the oven, let them cool for 15 minutes, and then decorate them with vegan googly eyes.
You can make these pies with just a few ingredients, and they are adorable, creepy and delicious! They sure are popular among kids! You may also be interested in checking out my other Halloween recipes, Ginger-Dead Men and vegan googly eyes.
