Magical Munchies For Muggles – My Harry Potter Themed Blog! Pt 1

July 14, 2011 · 35 comments

Actually I have to say, if I had the choice, I would love to be a witch.  I mean seriously, having the option to turn someone into a ferret….Like Mad Eye Moody (Actually Bartemus Crouch) did to Draco in Book 4, The Goblet of Fire….that would be awesome!!!

Who wants to admit to being a Harry Potter nerd?

*Raises Hand High To The Sky*  I am a Harry Potter nerd, and proud of it!

This week is the movie premiere of part two of book 7, the Deathly Hallows.  I have to admit it makes me sad to see the final movie coming out.

I travel for work, so I tend to listen to the audiobooks more….ummmm…yeah I have lost count with how many times I have listened to the audiobooks….see I said I was an HP nerd!

Sooooo I decided to have fun with recipes from the movie, make some of the sweet treats that were shared throughout the series.  I actually found a fantastic site with several recipes, and different variations to each recipe.

Today I made a recipe that I love hearing everytime, it sounds soooo delicious.

Pumpkin Pasties – Recipe from HarryPotterRecipes

2 eggs, slightly beaten

3/4 cup sugar

16oz can pumpkin

1 medium apple diced

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. ginger

1/4 tsp. cloves

1/2 t. allspice

1 2/3 cups evaporated milk (1 can)

Pam or butter for greasing casserole dish

Double pie crustRecipe from Chef2Chef

2 cups all purpose flour

½ tsp salt

2/3 cup unsalted butter

6-8 Tbsps water

To make filling add eggs and sugar to a mixing bowl, mix until well blended. Stir in pumpkin, salt and spices. Add evaporated milk and mix well.

To make pie crust – In mixing bowl, mix flour, salt, and butter.  Use pastry blender or your hands, and cut butter till pieces are the size of small peas.  Sprinkle water over mixture, gently toss with a fork, and bring mixture together.  Bring into ball and refrigerate until ready to use.

Bake the filling in a large casserole dish that has been buttered or sprayed with Pam. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. Keep oven door closed and reduce temperature to moderate (350 degrees) and continue baking for 45 minutes or until table knife inserted in center of dish comes out clean. Cool filling completely on a wire rack.

Roll pastry thin and cut into circles approximately 4 inches in diameter. Put a spoonful of the cool pumpkin mixture towards one side of the center of the circle. Fold over the crust into a half-circle and firmly crimp the edges closed. Cut with a paring knife three small slits in the top for venting. Place on a greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 400 degrees only until crust is a light golden brown, approximately 10 minutes.

Serve at room temperature.

I added the apple for fun.

For part two I will make some more sweet treats, AND either share some favorite things about the Harry Potter movies, OR you can ask me some questions!!!

I usually never get stumped at Harry Potter info, try to stump me, GO!

Until next time, Come on in, Have a seat,

Hugs, Terra

    I wouldn’t call myself a Harry Potter nerd {have sadly read none of the books, although I have seen almost all the movies}, but I love your fun Pumpkin Pasties recipe :-)  I do plan on taking my daughter to see the movie, although we won’t be in line late this Thursday evening!

    I have a whole family of Harry Potter nerds.  My kids love the audio books, and listened to them over and over while falling asleep for years, they could probably stump you.  But they are asleep, and since we are going to the midnight premier I want them to sleep in.  Thanks for the recipe, I think we will try it this afternoon.

    I’m going to try and make these with a gluten free pie crust.  I’ve been testing out pie and tart crusts lately and this would be a perfect filling!  Thanks for the idea!!
