First, you’ll line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Then, you’ll roll out the puff pastry into a large rectangle or square. Cut into 8 squares. Set aside.

To make the filling, beat together the pumpkin, egg yolk, sugar, pumpkin pie spice and heavy whipping cream in a mixing bowl. Save the egg white for later.
