As the leaves begin to change and a cool breeze fills the air, the fall season is officially upon us, and with it comes the highly anticipated Pumpkin Pop Tart launch. Thanks to Starbucks and their iconic Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL), pumpkin treats are back in the spotlight.
The Pumpkin Pop Tart Experience:
Sink your teeth into the delectable Pumpkin Pop Tart – a flaky pastry filled with luscious pumpkin goodness. This autumn-inspired treat is a perfect companion to your morning coffee or afternoon tea. Its warm spices and comforting flavor bring a taste of coziness to your day.
The Return of PSL:
Starbucks deserves a round of applause for pioneering the Pumpkin Spice Latte trend. With its rich blend of espresso, velvety steamed milk, and iconic pumpkin spice syrup, the PSL has become the unofficial harbinger of fall. Its arrival marks the season where pumpkin-flavored everything takes center stage. Try my PSL Creamed Cold Foam dupe here.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry and cut into equal rectangles. Transfer the rectangles to the lined baking sheet.
In a medium bowl, combine pumpkin, egg, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and milk. Whisk together until smooth.
Top each rectangle with about 2 tablespoons of the pumpkin mixture, spreading it evenly over the surface. Be sure to leave space around the edges of the dough.
Use a pastry brush or your finger to wet the edges of the filled rectangles with water. Place a second rectangle of dough on top of the filling. Seal the edges together with the handle of a wooden spoon.
Bake 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let the pop tarts cool for at least 30 minutes before adding the glaze.
In a medium, microwave-safe bowl, combine the brown sugar, milk, and vanilla. Whisk to combine until smooth.
Place the glaze into the microwave and cook for 1-2 minutes so the brown sugar can dissolve.
Drizzle and spread the glaze over the cooled pop tarts.
Add a light sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice over the glaze and let cool before serving.
