Although I appreciate making homemade dough, etc. I wanted something easy and to use up the prepared pie crust I had in the freezer.
Seeing this recipe on Chez Pim got me started...So if you want the old school version to make your own pop tarts...click on her link. If you want an easier way...continue reading.
K-man's favorite condiment is orange marmalade. You see all types of filling for those poptarts but no orange filled ones.
1 prepared pie dough, to room temperature
1/4 c. orange marmalade
1 small can of mandarin oranges, drained
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
In a small bowl, put in your mandarin oranges and use a spoon to break them up a bit. Stir in your orange marmalade. Set aside.
Roll out your dough a bit more on parchment paper. Carefully cut your dough into quarters. Spoon your marmalade mixture onto half of the triangle (envision you folding the large quarter in half to make a narrower triangle) After all the quarters have their fillings, fold them over and use a fork to crimp the edges. (Chez Pim cut all her edges to make them neater...I didn't feel the need)
Take a pair of scissors and clip a small vent on the tops or your edges will ooze filling (like mine, I didn't make my cut deeper enough with my knife)
Bake for 18-20 minutes. Check after 15 just in case. Bake until golden brown.
These were even better with a little chocolate drizzled on top!
K-man was dancing around when he got his own personal orange "hand pie"!
