Of course I had to come up with a pumpkin version of turnovers!
Pumpkin Turnovers Have all The Flavors of Fall!
Turnovers were simple desserts I could give to a neighbor to cheer them up.

And they’re super simple, but seem so luxurious!

I’m a huge pumpkin spice latte fan, but when I want to eat my calories instead of drink them, these pumpkin turnovers are perfect for getting my pumpkin pie flavors fix.
And I don’t have to make a pie crust!
Don’t get my wrong, I love a good pumpkin pie or pumpkin dessert with a pie crust, but I just don’t like making the crust…ha!

There’s one amazing ingredient that makes pumpkin pie turnovers possible.
