Pumpkin Ham and Cheese Pockets

Need a festive Halloween dinner for your trick or treaters on Saturday?  I made these festive pumpkins for my little guy (and big guy too) and they were a big hit! They are gooey, warm and nice and filling after a long evening of treat collecting! 

Kellen is really enjoying pumpkins and love to look at our pumpkin on the front porch. He loved peeking at these as I was putting them together, and Ron loves anything the involved hot ham and cheese. Plus these came together really easily and let us enjoy the remainder of the evening with little mess and cleaning. 

Tonight we are trying out another fun Halloween themed recipe and Kellen is enjoying our theme this week, and is asking about our special dinner every evening. However, tomorrow Kellen has a new challenge on his plate- solo swim class. Up until now, Kellen and I did the parent -child class, but he has gotten to the point that he is moving up a class. I am so excited for him, but on pins and needles to watch my little guy in class on his own. Kellen is very good with change, but I try to talk to him about what to expect and he tells me that he is ready AND excited about his new class. My little guy is getting so big! As a treat after class we are having dinner with his friends (and my friend!). One of his friends is also starting the new class with him- us moms will be watching cheering the boys on! 

Hope everyone is having a fun week! 


1 package of 8 refrigerated flaky layers biscuits
3/4 lb shaved ham
8 slices mild cheddar cheese
1 egg, beaten with 1 tsp water


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. 

Remove biscuits from package and pull layer apart to create two pieces. Spread the dough to create two 4 inch pieces. With a sharp knife, cut the face of the jack-o-lantern. On the bottom piece place ham and sliced cheese. Push edges together and shape like a pumpkin. Repeat with remaining biscuits.  Brush the biscuits with the egg wash. 

Bake 17-20 minutes or until golden brown and dough is completely cooked.
