Halloween apple and pear mummy treats

Ever since Halloween cooking craze started, I’ve been seeing a lot of mummy themed foods, usually hot dogs wrapped in mummy-like pastry. Well, I wanted to wrap puff pastry around something other than a hot dog, so I thought why not make mummy apples and pears?

Eating apple and pear mummy treats is like eating sugar coated deliciousness. The crust around apples and pears is made from puff pastry, and it’s crunchy both from puffed pastry and crystallized sugar. And inside each mummy there is a baked apple or pear, bringing back sweet childhood memories. And, it makes a relatively healthy Halloween snack – after all you’re getting a whole apple (or pear) under the mummy coat. I’d rather eat that than a mummy hot dog! Scroll down for easy step-by-step instructions.

How to make Halloween apple and pear mummy treats:


Prep time: 20 min


  • 2 apples, cored and peeled
  • 2 pears, cored and peeled
  • 1 puff pastry sheet, defrosted but not softened
  • cinnamon and sugar
  • 1 egg (for egg wash)

1) Preheat oven to 350 F. Roll puff pastry sheet and slice it thinly to make ribbons (strips).

2) Roll apple and pears in sugar and cinnamon. If you have a hard time coring the pear, just cut the pear in 2 parts, core both slices, put 2 parts together and bind them with puff pastry strips as described below:

3) Wrap puff pastry strips around each fruit, stretching puff pastry dough carefully and making the strips look like “bandages” to completely cover a fruit. Ran those bandages up and down, vertically and horizontally across the fruit. Whisk 1 egg in a small bowl to make egg wash. Brush puff pastry strips on fruits with egg wash. Sprinkle “mummies” generously and thoroughly (around all sides) with sugar.

4) Place fruit mummies on a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper. Bake for about 20 minutes until puff pastry puffs up and gets somewhat golden.
