Equipment

  • Cookie Sheet
  • Parchment Paper
  • Oven

Ingredients

  • 1 Box of Ready-Made Pie Crusts
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp strawberry preserves
  • 1 egg beaten

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Allow the pie crusts to come to room temperature so that they are easy to unroll.
  • Roll out each pie crust and cut off the rounded edges so you are left with a large square.
  • Cut square in half so you now have two somewhat equally sized rectangles. Perfections isn't necessary as you can see from my picture.
  • On top half of each rectangle, spoon 1/2 tablespoon of peanut butter and next to that add 1/2 tablespoon (one rounded teaspoon) of preserves, jam, or jelly.
  • Brush beaten egg along edges of top half forming a smaller square.
  • Pull the bottom half of pie crust over the top half and use fingers to push edges together.
  • Crimp edges with fork.
  • Use a toothpick to add holes to allow the steam to vent. You can get creative here and make a heart shape, initials, or something else cute.
  • Brush top of pie crust and edges with beaten egg.
  • Place pastries on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes and remove from oven when pastries are a nice golden brown.
  • Allow to cool slightly before serving as the filling will be hot.
  • Once cooled, these can be reheated in toaster on lowest setting or in the microwave for 15 to 20 seconds.

Notes

  • My middle son is my official recipe critic and he said I should have used more peanut butter.
