Too Many Lemons!

Toaster Pastries with Lemon Curd (Vegan option)

Love toaster pastries? Try making your own! These are much healthier and tastier, especially if made entirely from scratch. They can be eaten right away or frozen to keep fresh for another day. Lemons make such wonderful desserts! #ilovelemons!

I tend to overfill- can’t resist! Press around with a fork to seal edges

Ingredients:

  • Store bought pie crust dough or make your own (Vegan Pie Crust)
  • jar of lemon curd (store bought or make your own: Vegan Lemon Curd)
  • egg white from 1 egg (Vegan Egg Wash)
  • 1 Tbsp of water
  • about ½ cup of powdered sugar
  • fresh squeezed lemon juice of one lemon
  • rainbow sprinkles (if you want)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425°F.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Prepare the egg wash by whisking the egg and Tbsp of water white until peaks form, or prepare the vegan substitute.

Prepare the pie dough by trimming into a square, then dividing into rectangles, or cut circles. Each toaster pastry requires a pair of cut dough.

Brush edges of bottom crusts with egg wash, then fill with one teaspoon or tablespoon each of lemon curd, depending on the size of your dough cuts.

Seal edges by pressing down with fork and use toothpick to poke holes in top crust.

Brush the tops with egg wash and bake for about 10-12 minutes.

While pastries are baking, prepare glaze. Add ½ of the lemon juice to a bowl and mix in a little powdered sugar at a time. Add more lemon juice and powdered sugar alternately until desired amount and consistency is reached. For super extra lemony goodness, add zest from one lemon to the glaze.

Once pastries have cooled slightly, top with glaze and sprinkles.
