I am not going to do a whole lot of talking about this recipe, because frankly, Alton Brown does a great job telling you how to make it, and I followed his recipe for the crust exactly. He says that it is more of a cookie crust so there isn’t need to worry overmuch about getting it exact.
Eli rolled out all the dough by himself. He’s really good at it!
Then we cut them into circles with a Halloween cup and filled them with sweet cream cheese (made with cream cheese, powdered sugar, and heavy cream) and pureed cherry pie filling.
We crimped them closed did an eggwash over the top, sprinkled them with cinnamon and sugar and poked a couple holes in the top before putting them in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes.
I served them two different ways. The first with a powdered sugar and cream glaze.
The filling kind of seeps into the crust so don’t be shy when filling them up.
I had leftover pie filling and sweet cream cheese so I mixed them together,
and served the poptart like this:
Even Trav liked them, and because I did circles instead of rectangles I was able to make enough to save one for the each of the girls and Amelia, and bring a bunch for people to try at Grandma’s tomorrow.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Yay Giftmas!
