Evening lovelies! I wanted to hop on here this evening and share a new fun recipe and video tutorial with you. Recently we made homemade pop-tarts. These are one of my kids favorite treats. They are super easy to make and only take a few ingredients. I hope you guys get a chance to make these little lovelies. Your family will thank you! :)
Homemade Toaster Pastries
2 refrigerated pie crusts (or go homemade)
1 large egg, beaten with 1 tbl of water
6 tbl of filling of your choice
powdered sugar for sprinkling on top or icing :)
Prepare your crust according to package directions. Preheat oven to 375'. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll your first pie crust out and using a pizza cutter, cut it into a rectangle. Cut the rectangle into 6 smaller rectangles. Gently separate the rectangles from the counter and lay them on the prepared baking sheet (about 2 inches apart). With a pastry brush, paint each rectangle with the beaten egg. You will have some egg mixture left over. Set it aside for later. Next, scoop 1 tablespoon of filling on each rectangle in a thin line down the center. Roll out the second pie crust and repeat the steps to create six rectangles. Lay the new batch of rectangles over the rectangles with filling and seal by pressing a fork around the perimeter of the rectangle. Using the pastry brush, paint the tops of each pastry with egg wash and poke several times with a fork. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden. Cool on a wire rack for at least 20 minutes before dusting with powdered sugar or icing. This recipe makes 6 pastries.
