Pumpkin Cinnamon Apple Pastries

Happy Friday friends!! So excited for fall and all the fun recipes that come with it!! Here is one of those recipes I made up while not sleeping in the middle of the night. Haha what is my problem?? Anyways, if you have made my Sweet Crust Pizza or my Peach Pastry recipes you are pro at the pastry dough by now! This is the perfect recipe for a weekend breakfast in my opinion. I also thought it would be fun to add a little orange food coloring to pastry dough mixture so it looks like a REAL pumpkin.
One little note for ya I added a section in the recipe box for fall recipes so it would be easier for you friends to figure out what to make for your upcoming festivities hope this helps!
Ya'll have a fun filled weekend with all of the pumpkin picking and apple cider! Now for the recipe..

Here Are Your Ingredients:

1 apple - diced
1 cup quick oats
1 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon - I Can't Believe It's Not Butter - light
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup white flour
4 tablespoons butter - light
2 ounces cream cheese - low fat
1/4 cup water - ice cold
 
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium mixing bowl add flour, butter, cream cheese, and water. Beat together with electric beater until well mixed; with hands, roll into ball. Sprinkle a touch of flour on counter and place ball of dough on flour. Pull apart 6 equal pieces of dough. Roll out each with rolling pin quite thin (to make equal sized pastries).  Leave a small amount of dough aside to make pumpkin stems. In small pan place on stove on medium heat. Add oatmeal, apples, 1 tablespoon of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, and cinnamon. Warm together for 3-4 minutes. Dabble mixture in the middle of each pastry. Take knife and cut small strips all the way around mixture. Pull all sides up one at a time around mixture and press together strips at the top. Make a nub of dough for the stem and place on top covering where you pressed strips of pastry together. Place pastries on cookie sheet with non stick cooking spray. Bake for 20 minutes until pumpkins have started to brown. When done add honey or powdered sugar if you please :).
