The Cast Of "Fantastic Beasts" Makes Pumpkin Pasties

Magic has never been more delicious.

It's a very special part of the year, because it's time to welcome the next phase of the Wizarding World into our lives with Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.

With this new story comes new characters and magical adventures, so to celebrate the film's release, we had two of its stars — the no-maj baker himself, Dan Fogler, and Alison Sudol — stop by BuzzFeed NY to help us make some ~wizarding treats~.


And just in time for the holidays, we had the duo make some pumpkin pasties inspired by Harry Potter's Hogwarts Express treats.


Watch them come to life in the video below:

For 12 Pumpkin Pasties


1 can pumpkin purée

1 cup dark brown sugar packed

1 tbsp cinnamon

2 tsp ground ginger

2 tsp ground nutmeg

1 tsp ground cloves

Pinch of salt

Egg wash


4 rolls pie crust


1. Preheat oven at 400°F.

2. Mix the pumpkin purée, sugar, spices and salt in a large bowl.

3. Unroll pie crust and with a small bowl cut 24 circles of dough.

4. Scoop a tablespoon of the pumpkin mix in the middle one circle of dough.

5. Wet the edges of the dough with a bit of water.

6. Cover with another circle of dough.

7. With a fork, crimp the edges of the pasty to seal it completely.

8. Do this with the rest of the circles of dough until you have 12 pasties.

9. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.

10. Enjoy!
