April 22, 2012 (WPVI) -- Mr. Food tackles two more popular products - toaster pastries and homemade chocolate cookie sandwiches.
Makes: 12 pastries
Cooking Time: 7 min
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
2. Unroll one pie crust and using a knife, square the edges. Cut into 12 rectangles 2 inches wide by 3 inches long. Place a teaspoon of preserves in center of 6 rectangles and top with remaining rectangles. Using a fork, crimp edges and place on baking sheet. Unroll second pie crust and repeat process.
3. Bake 7 to 9 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool 5 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
4. In a small bowl, stir together confectioners' sugar and milk, until consistency is like thick syrup. Spoon glaze slowly over fruit pockets and sprinkle with decorative sugar, if desired. Let harden, then serve.
