a very gilmore girls recipe

1 Comment

gilmore-girl-snacksI started Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life last night! I knew I wanted to watch several in a row (wish there were more) so in true gilmore fashion I had to think about snacks. Coffee and poptarts what could be more gilmore?

Channeling my inner Sookie (with a shortcut because I had leftover pie crust from Thanksgiving pies) I made poptarts from scratch. Naturally, these are divine and easy enough even Lorelai cold whip these up.

Ingredients:
One piecrust (homemade or bought)
Strawberry Jam
1 cup confectioners sugar
2 Tablespoons milk
1 tsp vanilla
sprinkles

Directions:
1) Preheat oven to 425.
2) Rollout piecrust to a rectangle (if possible). Cut small squares or rectangles, I did a variety of sizes but make sure everyone has a mate to be paired with that’s the same size.
3) Spread jam onto bottom pastry leaving a little room around the edges. Top with the doughs mate and crimp with a fork. I don’t mind mine being messy but clean any overflow in the oven or on the pan with a wet paper towel before it dries and crystallizes.
4) Bake for 10 minutes until dough is slightly brown. While the poptarts cool combine confectioners sugar, milk and vanilla together. Once cooled, pour over pop tarts and add sprinkles.
