Breakfast Is Served!
Once you taste these homemade pop pastries, you’ll never look at your breakfast routine the same. They are delicious and easy to make. Try them with your favorite filling, and remember to always use fresh Hiland Dairy Milk to make these pastries burst with natural flavors.
Homemade Pop Pastries
- 1 (15-ounce) package refrigerated pie crusts
- 1 jar natural strawberry preserves or jam
- 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
- 2-3 tablespoons Hiland Dairy Milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Food coloring
- Candy sprinkles
Preheat oven to 425ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Unroll one pie crust on a clean, floured work surface. Roll the crust with a rolling pin to make a square.
Cut the crust into three equal strips, approximately 3 inches wide by 11 inches in length. Tip: I use a baking ruler for this step. On one side of the strip, spread the preserves to within 1/4 inch of the edges.
Fold the plain side over the preserves side, and crimp the edges with a fork.
Bake in preheated oven until the edges are lightly golden brown, about 7 minutes. Allow to cool completely.
In a medium size bowl, mix together sugar, milk and vanilla to make the glaze.
Separate a few spoonfuls and add food coloring of your choice.
Spread glaze on top of each cooled pop pastry. Top with sprinkles and/or colored glaze.
These pop pastries are also amazing with a cinnamon, blueberry or chocolate filling. Be sure to serve them with a tall glass of pure and fresh Hiland Dairy Milk for a truly “good morning!”
