What says summer better than berries? My nieces came over to visit with us and one of them says she loves "Pop Tarts". I decided to make a raspberry pie, and I had a little leftover crust. So, with the FarmChicks as my inspiration I whipped up these little beauties!
First, I made some pie crust (click here for recipe), and made the pie (below). Then I mixed some frozen raspberries 1 or 2 cups, with sugar 1/2 cup, and 2 tablespoons flour. I made the "Tart" filling a little thicker than the pie filling. I rolled the crust out, and cut it into round circles. I placed about a teaspoon to a tablespoon of fruit in each circle, depending on the size of your circle, brushed the edges with milk and folded the circle over. I pressed a fork around the edges to seal. They cooked about 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees.
My niece wanted them to have a little icing drizzle, I thought that was a fine idea. I mixed a little fresh squeezed lemon juice with some organic powered sugar. Oh yes, it was yummy and much better than a "pop tart"! A perfect summer breakfast! :)
I think if I tried it again I would add a tablespoon of sugar to the pie crust recipe. It was not quite as sweet as my raspberry pie, because it was more crust than filling. Alternatively, you could put a bit more the sugary icing over the top of the "Tarts".
Here is the raspberry pie I made. Same crust, the filling was 4 cups of frozen raspberries, 1 1/4 cup organic sugar, squeezed juice of 1 fresh lemon over berries, and 2 heaping tablespoons flour. Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour.
Cool for at least 15 min. Take a slice, and add one scoop of vanilla ice-cream.
You are in heaven!
