Yes, the time has come to feast your eyes on my first item made from CakeSpy’s New Cookbook. I have been so wrapped up in school and well, creating my own delicious treats, that I wasn’t able to try any of the recipes from her book…until NOW.
So here you have it. A gift, really. A terrific recipe and a few photos.
1/2 C Butter, cold and cubed
1 1/2 C Flour
1 Tsp Salt
4 Tbsp Milk
A filling of your choice: jam, peanut butter, etc.
Make the pastry:
Stir the flour and salt. Cut in the butter using a pastry blender or fork. Once crumbly, add milk one tablespoon at a time until a soft dough forms.
On a floured surface, roll the dough into a rectangle. Cut dough into rectangular pieces, about 3X5 inches. Make sure you cut an even number!
Place half of the pastry rectangles on a greased cookie sheet. On each rectangle, scoop a tablespoon of your filling, then cover it with another pastry rectangle.
Using a fork, press all of the edges together to seal the pastry. Poke the top of each to allow steam to vent.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden.
If you wish to ice your pastries, combine powdered sugar and milk until you reach your desired consistency. Add sprinkles!
