The magic of leftover pie dough...

Pocket pies!

Homemade Poptarts ~ the ultimate quarantine snack!

Flaky, buttery, just sweet enough.

So easy, and you likely have all the ingredients you need in your pantry!

You will need: pie dough, jam, butter

๐Ÿ”ธ Cut out rectangles from your pre-made dough (don't have pre-made? ...see below).

๐Ÿ”ธ Place one rectangle on a buttered cookie sheet. Best to line with parchment, but foil works (use what ya got).

๐Ÿ”ธ Fill the center with a dollop of your fave jam. Our trifecta...apricot, elderberry, strawberry. Be careful not to spread jam to the edge...we are about to seal in all the jammy goodness... ๐Ÿ”ธ Place your other rectangle of dough on top and start to pinch, or press, with the tip of a fork, all the way around.

๐Ÿ”ธ Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes, or until a light golden brown.

Easy peasy.

๐Ÿ’ฅ Let cool by your kitchen window...that jam is like lava!! Optional: drizzle icing on top! Powdered sugar, Cream, Vanilla.

Donโ€™t have pre-made dough?

Here is my Grandma Bradyโ€™s recipe. If comfort had a taste, Grandmaโ€™s pie would be it. (Thanks, Grandma B. xo)
