Homemade Toaster Pastries

  • Yield: 6 servings
  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Cooking Time: 20 min

Ingredients

  • 2 refreigerated pie crusts
  • Flour for dusting the cutting board
  • 1 egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon water
  • 6 tablespoons jam or Nutella for filling
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream or whole milk

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Unroll the pie crusts, roll the first disc of pie pastry on a lightly floured surface into a roughly 9 x 12- inch rectangle.
  2. Cut the rectangle into six smaller rectangles. Gently separate the rectangles from the cutting board and lay them on the prepared baking sheet with 2-inches of space between each one.
  3. With a pastry brush, paint each rectangle with the beaten egg wash. Set the egg wash aside to use later.
  4. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the filling onto each rectangle in a thin line down the center.
  5. Roll out the second disc of pie pastry into a roughly 9 x 12 - inch rectangle. Cut out six rectangles and lay each rectangle over the rectangles with the filling.
  6. Seal the edges by pressing a fork around the perimeter of each rectangle.
  7. Using the pastry brush, paint the tops of each pastry with the egg wash and poke several times with a fork.
  8. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden. Cool on a wire rack.
  9. While the pastries are cooling make the glaze; In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and cream until smooth. The glaze should have enough liquid in it to drizzle onto the pastries. If necessary, add a little more cream until you reach the desired consistency.
  10. Dust with powdered sugar or frosting.
