STRAWBERRY & NUTELLA HOMEMADE POP TARTS

January 27, 2013

Well, I wanted to get smidge cute-sy on Valentine’s day this year. While still giving my grizzly husband something he’d actually like.

The man likes pop-tarts.

I like strawberries & nutella. Together.

So. These got made. This is a time where you would question if the gift I got for Dave is really more for him or for me. Andddd your question is valid.

I’d ask all of you to be my Valentine, but Dave would be jealous.

STRAWBERRY & NUTELLA HOMEMADE POP TARTS
Makes 4 pop-tarts

1 box pre-made pie crust
1/2 cup nutella
1/4 cup strawberry jam
1 egg
Strawberry for garnish
Granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice round pie crust to create four large rectangles (eight rectangles total). In four of the rectangles, cut out a small heart, about the size of a strawberry, with a butter knife.

On the remaining rectangles, layer an even amount of nutella and strawberry jam, leaving a small perimeter around the edge for sealing.
