Instructions
Making The Filling
  1. In a medium-sized saucepan, combine strawberries, sugar, and lemon zest over medium-low heat.Stir frequently until strawberries release their juices.
  2. Use a slotted spoon to crush the strawberries until mostly liquid (it's fine if small pieces are remaining).
  3. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil, stirring constantly for 3 minutes and remove from heat.
  4. Stir in vanilla extract. Continue to occasionally stir the mixture so that it doesn't burn to the bottom of the pan.
  5. Let cool then pour into a storage container and let sit in fridge for 24 hours to thicken.
  6. Cut roughly into 4" x4" squares and place 1 heaping Tbsp of filling in the center of one piece of crust.
  7. Fold the crust in half and crimp the edges with a fork to seal, and pierce small holes throughout the pastry using a clean fork. Repeat until all of your dough has been used.
  8. Bake on 350 for 22 minutes or until edges are beginning to turn golden-brown.
  9. Allow to cool completely before frosting.
Making The Frosting
  1. Prepare glaze by whisking together powdered sugar, heavy cream, lemon zest and vanilla extract.
  2. Once pop tarts are cooled, spread over each pop tart.
Recipe Notes

Unlike store bought pop-tarts these are best not toasted in a toaster. They are best enjoyed fresh out of the oven (after cooled) or reheated in the microwave for just a few seconds however the icing becomes melted when heated.

Farm Fresh Stone Fruit Turnovers

Farm Fresh Stone Fruit Turnovers

I love this idea for using up summer stone fruit! Peaches, nectarines, apricots, or berries are delicious when prepared this way. Even over ripe, under ripe, and bruised fruit can be salvaged as they can get a second chance when baked up in these puff pastry turnovers.

Instructions
  1. Set the oven to 400F
  2. Toss the apricot slices with the cornstarch, sugar, almond extract and lemon juice until everything is well combined and there are no lumps of cornstarch left. Set aside for about 15 minutes.
  3. Put the puff pastry sheet on a floured surface and gently roll out to a square.
  4. Cut the pastry into four equally sized squares.
  5. Spoon a little of the stone fruit onto the center of each square. Gently pull one side over into a triangle while gently stretching it over the fruit and then use a fork to press along the edges to seal.
  6. Brush each turnover lightly with the egg wash, and then cut a couple of small slits in the top with a sharp paring knife or poke small holes with a fork.
  7. Bake on a parchment lined baking sheet for about 20 minutes, or until the turnovers are risen and golden brown.
  8. Cool slightly, dust with powdered sugar if you want to, and then enjoy right away.

Hint: Serve with vanilla bean ice cream for an extra treat!
