Raspberry Halloween mummy pies are a fun and easy way to make spooky food! They’re delicious and made with fresh or frozen raspberries.
I’ve loved Halloween since I was a little girl. My sisters and I decorated the house and cooked spooky recipes with my mum and dad. We would stuff clothes to look like a witch and sit her on the front porch, then fill bowls with wet spaghetti and grapes as ‘brains’ and ‘eyeballs’ to trick any treaters.
I grew up in Canada where Halloween is a BIG DEAL. My parents weren’t keen on us trick or treating, so we would always have huge parties. The table would be spread with an epic eerie buffet and spooky tunes. Friends would arrive in all manner of fancy dress and we would party and play games into the night.
These ‘mummies’ are a fun way to get in the halloween spirit. You could get creative with the fillings and make them savoury with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese, perhaps pureed vegetables or a different fruit. They’re versatile, adaptable and so easy to make! I added edible eyes to make them fun, which I picked up on Amazon.
I went for a raspberry filling, simply made by heating frozen raspberries with a bit of sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice. It turns into a jam-like consistency and for ease you could even just use jam!
These halloween mummy pies are perfect for a bloodcurdling party and my kids instantly tucked into them with glee.
Easy Halloween Party Food
Is it a hassle to throw a Halloween party?
No, it certainly doesn’t have to be!
To round out my Halloween party spread, I popped into my local Iceland Foods to peruse their range. I was delighted to find specific Halloween party food including ghost lollies and jalapeno cheese roulette. It comes in a plastic spinner and an unlucky recipient will get one that’s super spicy! I added mini pizzas decorated with black olive eyes and chocolate covered profiteroles from the party food freezer. For a dip I used a tub of beetroot salad from their chilled aisle for that creepy bloodcurdling look! A few edible eyes, faked spiders, web lace and boom – we had Halloween festivities! Oh, and if you buy three foods from Iceland’s party range this Halloween you get a free tub of Swizzles sweets. Perfect for trick or treaters!
Their range of Iceland party food makes it super-easy to throw an impromptu party. I also love how you can plan ahead, buy it and stash it in the freezer until just before party time. Cook it or thaw it and you’re ready to go.
How to make Halloween Mummy Pies
As this photo shows, it’s really easy to make mummy hand pies.
With only 6 ingredients, you can quickly cut the pastry into shapes and turn them into quick and easy Halloween treats! Pop them in the oven and they puff up and get full of oozy raspberry ‘blood’.
I always keep a big stash of frozen raspberries in the freezer as they’re perfect for quick desserts, adding to porridge or blitzing into a smoothie. Nothing gets wasted as I just use what I need and it doesn’t go off. I also love that frozen fruit means the goodness is all locked in. That’s the #poweroffrozen.
You will need:
- Store-bought puff pastry (check for vegan and/or gluten free if required)
- Frozen raspberries
- Lemon juice
- Milk (for brushing)
- Edible eyes make them extra spooky (and cute). I got mine from amazon.

These 6-ingredient easy raspberry Halloween pies are shaped like mummies. They're quick and easy to make and taste delicious.
- 750 g puff pastry (2 x 375g/15oz package), ready rolled
- 300 g raspberries fresh or frozen
- 5 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 3 tbsp milk for brushing
Preheat oven to 190C/375F. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment paper (or use the parchment from the pastry packet)
Add the raspberries, lemon juice and sugar to a pan and heat, stirring often until thawed and the raspberries break up a bit. Reduce the heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes until thickened slightly.
Unroll the pastry and cut one sheet into 6 equal-sized squares, then cut each square in half to make 12 rectangles.
Cut the other sheet of pastry into thin strips.
Spoon the raspberry sauce onto the rectangles, avoiding the outer edge.
Add dough strips decoratively to look like mummies, and gently press the edges to seal.
Brush with the milk and bake for 20 minutes, or until golden. Serve warm or cold and decorate with edible eyes.
To make this recipe even quicker, use raspberry jam for the filling!
For vegan and/or gluten free, use non-dairy milk and check pastry ingredients. Many store-bought puff pastries are vegan and some are now gluten-free.
