Homemade Pop Tarts

A couple of weeks ago I used a leftover pie shell and some Ikea blueberry jam to make a few really happy "pop tarts." I've heard this kind of delightful snack referred to as a "smackerel."

Pie Crust (I used 1 leftover frozen crust)
Blueberry Jam

1/2 C Powdered Sugar
1/4 C Milk (or less)

Directions: Roll the dough out to 1/4 inch, then cut into matching rectangles. Place a spoonful of jam (not too much - it won't seal right) on half of the rectangles. Top with the remaining rectangles. Using a fork, press the edges together. Bake at 450 until golden brown. Cool. For the glaze mix milk into  powdered sugar (you don't need much glaze it goes a long way.) If the glaze is too thin add enough sugar to thicken it a little. Glaze the pop tarts and add sprinkles.
