leftover pie dough? not up for having a whole pie? make pop tarts for fun.
i had some dough leftover from thanksgiving pies so i recently made these for dessert one night. comfort food at its best.
ingredients: two recipies of your favorite pie dough
roll out one to a nice rectangle shape. cut into eight equal size smaller rectangles. fill center with desired jam (we have done blueberry and homemade cranberry sauce recently; leave space around edges. brush egg around edges.
roll out other dough to same size and cut. top the first rectagles with these and press down lightly with fingers. slightly press also with fork and poke a few holes in the tops. brush tops with egg.
bake at 350 for about 20 minutes...until lightly browned. once cooled drizzle with a little lemon frost (lemon juice and powdered sugar). enjoy!
