I have such a case of nostalgia when they see a pop tart – they are the tasty treats from the 60’s, in desperate need a revamp. These have a tender and flaky crust, a sweet and creamy pumpkin custard, and the most important element of a pop tart, FROSTING. Save one or two for me!

1 package refrigerated pie dough
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 egg
2 tablespoon heavy cream , divided
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup powdered sugar
