How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oven to 400°F.

Step 2

Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.  Cut the pastry sheet into 3 strips along the fold marks. Cut each strip into 4 rectangles, making 12 in all.  Place the pastry rectangles onto a baking sheet.

Step 3

Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.  Remove the pastries from the baking sheet and let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.  Split the pastries into 2 layers, making 24 in all.

Step 4

Stir the pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar in a medium bowl.  Fold in the whipped topping.  Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Step 5

Divide the pumpkin mixture among 12 bottom pastry layers. Top with the pecans and top pastry layers.  Garnish with additional cinnamon and confectioners' sugar or whipped topping.

Recipe Tips

  • Tip: For a striped garnish, place 1/2-inch strips of wax paper diagonally across the tops of the pastries.  Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar or cinnamon.  Remove the wax paper.

    Pumpkin Mousse Napoleons

    I used the puff pastry biscuits instead, which made this easier. But the taste was just OK. I had a lot left over.

    Made it for my club's holiday party and it went over very well with the people who like pumpkin. I have had several recipe requests already.
