Ghost shaped brown sugar and cinnamon pop tarts, homemade!
These are so easy. I saw them over at Chickens In The Road a while back and knew I wanted to make them and today seemed like the perfect morning. The Halloween shapes are just a bonus :)
Here is the link to Suzanne's original recipe. Go take a look, she did hers square, like the real ones.
This is another one of my easy yummies for this week. Make your favorite pie crust or buy a store bought one. I never want you to NOT make a recipe because you don't know how to make something like pie crust or bread dough. You can always buy these, and they will work just fine. The pie crust recipe I used is in the recipe on Chickens In The Road.
You are going to roll out your pie crust very thinly and cut out your shapes. Or make squares, either way is just fine.
Fill them with your choice of stuffins. I made the brown sugar and cinnamon ones by melting 3 Tablespoons butter and adding 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup white sugar and 1 Tablespoon cinnamon. This was per Suzanne's directions.
Put a little filling in each one, but not too much because the top still has to fit over it so you can crimp it down.
Crimp the edges with a fork.
When you have them all done, transfer them to a cookie sheet and bake in a 400 degree oven for about 15 minutes, or until they are golden brown. Remove from the cookie sheet and place them on a cooling rack. While they are still warm, glaze with a mixture of 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and enough milk to make it drizzling consistency (maybe 1 or 2 tablespoons, not much). Put your sprinkles on and let the icing harden.
Mmmm, ghost. Tasty :)
You could fill these with jam or jelly, or chocolate chips and marshmallow if you wanted. Whatever you can think up, you can stick inside!
