A Harvest Bento

In honor of Halloween, I have made a harvest themed bento.  Tonight we had a lovely dinner that was remade here.

Layer 1:  An appetizer plate of veggies and cheese with a jack-o-lantern pepper.  Dessert is a spice muffin and fresh fruit. 

Layer 2:  Roast pork with onions, apple butter, acorn squash, and pumpkin pasties. 


How to Make Pumpkin Pasties

You will need:
  • pie crust (either store bought or home made)
  • a can of pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and allspice

Combine the pumpkin, 1 egg, brown sugar, and spices in a bowl.  Mix in spices to taste.

Beat the second egg with a tsp of water.

Cut rounds or other shapes of pie crust and fill with the pumpkin mixture.

Paint the edges of the shape with the egg and water and press the shape closed.

Paint the top of each shape with egg and sprinkle with spices and brown sugar.

Bake at 350 degrees until brown.
