Quick and Easy Frosted Pastries
I have also made alternative choices this time around in times of craving such as apple slices dipped in a honey/Greek yogurt/peanut butter mixture instead of a slice of cake when wanting something sweet, home fried foods rather than deli counter and such. Today I was feeling like pastries so instead of going out and buying a whole box of Pop Tarts that I'd finish off myself since Chris doesn't eat them, I quickly whipped up some Pop Tart inspired pastries.
pre-made pie crust
preferred choice of jam/jelly
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 T milk
1/8 t vanilla extract
Directions: Slightly roll out pie crust and then cut in desired shape (either traditional Pop Tart or use a biscuit cutter) in multiples of two. Continue to collect and roll out dough remains until all dough is used (or most of).
Place one dough cut out on a cookie sheet, dab and spread some jam in the center of cut out avoiding the edges. Place other dough cut out on top and with a fork seal the edges.
Bake at 450' for 8-10 minutes.
Once cooled, in a small bowl whisk together powdered sugar, milk and vanilla. Glaze top of cooled pastries and then add sprinkles. Store in an airtight seal container.
