Scary Breakfast Treat

I discovered this fun morning munchie, as I was blog hopping today, at Be Different....Act Normal (love it!)

Pumpkin Pop-Tarts

1 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 package refrigerated pie crust
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoon milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, sugar, and egg. Unroll pie crusts, cut the edges off to make a large square, then cut the pie crust into three equal rectangles (about 2″ x 3″). Spoon a small amount of pumpkin mixture into the center of one of the rectangles, taking care to not let the filling ooze near the edges. Use a small paring knife to carve jack-o-lantern faces into a second rectangle. Gently lay the carved piece over the pumpkin filling, then press the edges firmly together with a fork. Transfer to a cookie sheet and bake in an oven preheated to 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes, or just until the edges of the pop-tart begin to turn golden brown.

In a large bowl, mix together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla. Drizzle glaze over hot pumpkin pop-tarts. Allow to cool on a cooling rack before serving.
