We continue our countdown to Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald this week with this simple kid-friendly Pumpkin Danish recipe. This pumpkin danish recipe is inspired by Harry Potter and the pumpkin treats they get on the Hogwarts Express. From pumpkin juice to pumpkin pasties – this spin on their favorite fall flavors is so easy kids can make it.
Harry Potter Pumpkin Danish Recipe
You’ll need a few ingredients to make these pumpkin danishes. You can make your own homemade dough if you’d like or buy a package of crescent rolls to keep it simple.
- Package of crescent dough
- Can of pumpkin puree
- Brown Sugar
- Confectioners Sugar
Mix your pumpkin with brown sugar to give it a little sweetness. Then place a small amount on your crescent roll dough.
I sprinkled my pumpkin with cinnamon, then wrapped the crescent roll and added more cinnamon to the top of each danish.
Bake in the oven based on the instructions for your dough – roughly 9 minutes on 350o until they are golden brown.
Next, it is time to make your glaze. Again, this is very simple. Mix 1/2 cup of confectioners sugar with 1 tablespoon of milk and stir. You can alter the measurements based on desire of glaze thickness.
Let your pumpkin danishes cool slightly before adding your glaze so it doesn’t melt off.
Enjoy your pumpkin danishes! Best enjoyed warm.
