I had a good amount of pie dough leftover from my duties on Thanksgiving. I was pretty pied out and had no other ideas for leftover pie dough. Jeremy pops in (taking a small break from his new PS3 game Granturismo 5) and says "make poptarts".
And so I did. I made some poptarts of my own.
They were so cute! Beside the fact that a few of them had fillings bursting out the side, I'd say they were pretty darn precious. This has been done before, and done probably much better than mine, but I, along with my family and dear hubby were content with these well-known, homemade treats.
Like I said, not as perfect as the others, but I'm willing to bet they were just as tasty. For the fillings I used homemade blueberry and cranberry-apple jam (blog post on that coming soon), peanut butter/chocolate, and strawberry.
For the strawberry and peanut butter poptarts, I decided they would be better with a chocolate drizzle. The favorite flavor of the bunch was the strawberry filling with chocolate glaze. Hubby says that I need to make these every morning for breakfast, although his breakfast does not start till about 2 in the afternoon, so I might could handle that ; )
Got some leftover pie dough? Or just feel like making some? Make these guys. And let me know what fillings you choose to use, there are so many possibilities!
This is the same pie dough recipe I used for all the turkey day pies...
