One of my favorite recipes on this blog, and actually a hidden gem because it really needs an updated picture so I don’t share it as often as I would like, is the Blueberry Danish Puff. It is PHENOMENAL! My sister actually requested for her birthday treat this year :)

This recipe is an adaption of that recipe and is such a delicious fall and holiday treat! A creamy pumpkin layer with sugared pecans sandwiched between layers of delicious flakey and soft puff pastry. Then as if that isn’t incredible enough, it is drizzled with a caramel glaze.  Let me tell you, this. is. AMAZING!

It is super simple to make and really only takes about 10 minutes to throw together with 20-25 minutes of cooking time. So if you are looking for a quick, yummy and unique treat to serve up your company, give this a try! You will be so glad you did!

    Woah. I don't know what I like best about this. The fact that it's essentially two pies in one (you got your caramel pecan, and you got your pumpkin) or the fact that it's pie made with puff pastry. There needs to be more puff pastry pies out there. That frosting drizzle is gorgeous!

    Looks absolutely delicious! How long can these stay out before refrigeration is required?

    Is that a can of pure pumpkin or is a can of pumpkin mix? It sounds yummy. I will be visiting my mom soon and I think I will make this for her!

    This tasted pretty good despite the fact that the cinnamon and vanilla wasn't included in the instructions. I didn't realize it until I had already made it. I baked it for 23 minutes, but the bottom pastry was still not done. It seemed a little gooey - maybe too much pumpkin mixture.

    Is there an update for this recipe, based on 1 reviewer's comment that the vanilla and cinnamon wasn't in the instructions? I'd like to try this.
