Grown Up Pastry Tarts


1 jar Robert Rothschild Farm Fruit Spread of choice; Strawberry Lime Basil, Orange Elderflower Marmalade, Grapefruit Vanilla Bean or Blackberry Tea & Sage
1 package Refrigerated pie crust, at room temperature
1 large Egg
1 cup Powdered Sugar
1 tsp. Milk
Optional: Sugar crystals


Pastry Tart 1

Preheat oven per pie crust directions. Unroll pie crusts and squaring off corners; then you can maximize the dough and get as many tarts as possible. Cut dough into an even number of rectangles. Mix egg and some water in a small bowl. On half of the pie crust place 1 – 2 teaspoons of fruit spread directly in the center. Use your judgment as to amount based on the size of your dough. With a pastry brush, wash the edges of the dough that contains the fruit spread with the egg wash. Then place a plain piece of dough on top. Crimp the edges by using a fork.

Remove from oven and place on cooling rack. Prepare glaze by mixing milk with powdered sugar. Start with 1 teaspoon of milk and slowly add until desired consistency is reached. Drizzle a small amount over each tart while they are still warm. Serve warm or reheated. Refrigerate leftover pastry tarts.
