Made these "sorting hats" for my students last year when they watched Harry Potter. Didn't use this recipe though. I used the Keebler Fudge Stripes cookies as shown. All I did though was heat a pan on low, touch the base of a kiss to the pan and then gently press it over the hole in the middle of the cookie. So simple to make, but so cute.
If you look up recipes for Harry Potter's pumpkin pasties on Pinterest, you'll find a slew of sweet, handheld pumpkin pies. BUT any true Harry Potter fan knows that pumpkin pasties, a Honeydukes Express snack sold on the Hogwarts Express, are supposed to be like a savory cornish pastie but filled with pumpkin instead of meat and veggies. That's why this recipe, unlike others, seasons the pumpkin filling with garlic, butter, and cheddar cheese.
