The 14 Days of Valentine - Dessert first today!

January 29, 2016

Strawberry Nutella Poptarts!  Aren't they adorable?  And you will never guess how easy they are...

Thesse Strawberry Nutella Poptarts are a snap to put together and would make the perfect Valentine's Day breakfast in bed for the kiddos... or your lover!

ingredients:

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 package refrigerated pie crust
  • 6 heaping teaspoons Nutella
  • 6 heaping teaspoons strawberry jelly
  • 2 large strawberries, sliced lengthwise and carved into hearts 
  • coarse sugar (or granulated sugar)

First, take some store bought pie dough.  Sure you could make your own, if you wanna be an over achiever or whatever.

Roll out the pie dough till it's pretty thin.  Then cut it into 2.5 * 3.5 inch rectangles.

On one pie dough rectangle, spread a layer of Nutella.  Then spread a layer of Strawberry Jelly.

Cut a stawberry slice into the shape of a heart (slice a starwberry lengthwise into slices and then curve out the stop with a paring knife to create the heart shape).

Using the strawberry heart as a pattern, cut out a heart shaped hole in the second piece of dough.

Place the starwberry in the center of the nutella/strawberry jam mixture.  Top with the second piece of dough with the heart shaped whole.

Using a fork, seal the edges.  Brush the pie dough with an egg wash (1 egg yolk + a splash of quality H2O - any Waterboy fans??)  and then sprinkle the top with a heavy dose of coarse sugar.

Bake at 350°F for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown.  Let cool 5 minutes and serve!

directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F and cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silpat mat.

In a small bowl, whisk together egg yolk and 1 teaspoon water. Set aside.

Roll out pie crust till it's pretty thin (about 1/16th of an inch thick). Cut into 2.5 inch x 3.5 inch rectangles, re-rolling the dough as needed. You should end up with 12 rectangles.

Take 6 of the rectangles and cut out a heart in the center, using the strawberries carved into hearts as a guide. Set aside.

On each of the 6 remaining rectangles, spread 1 heaping teaspoon of Nutella, leaving a 1/2 inch border around the edges. Then top the Nutella with a layer of strawberry jam, again making sure to leave a 1/2 inch border.

Place a strawberry carved heart on top of the strawberry jam layer, in the center of the rectangle. Top with the pie dough with the heart carved out of the center.

Seal the edges with the prongs of a fork and brush with egg wash mixture. Sprinkle heavily with coarse sugar.

Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer to a cooling rack. Let cool for 5 minutes and then serve!
