Trader Joe's Is Selling Pumpkin Empanadas

Trader Joe's Has Pumpkin Empanadas, and We're Already Wondering How Many We Can Fit in Our Mouths

When the fall season hits, pumpkins are basically everywhere — in decorations, candle scents, piled high at the store for carving, and baked into almost every food. While we all know and love treats like pumpkin scones and pumpkin donuts, we can't wait to ditch our usual go-to orders and try these pumpkin empanadas from Trader Joe's! (We also definitely plan on pretending they're pumpkin pasties from Harry Potter while munching on them during our many HP movie marathons this fall.)

The empanadas are a warm, flaky pastry filled with a sweet, creamy pumpkin filling, which pretty much sounds like the best fall treat ever. You can pick up a box of them at a Trader Joe's near you for $4, and all you have to do is warm them up in the oven and they're ready to eat! Instagram user @traderjoesoc described them as "sweet and good for a cold night." Keep these stored in the freezer and pull one out whenever you feel like eating some decadent pumpkin goodness (read: every day). It's like a mini fried pumpkin pie that you don't have to bake from scratch!
