Mini Fruit Pockets

Breakfast at our home has to be quick!  Some of the favorites with my son are Toaster Strudels, Pop Tarts and things like that.  Not the healthiest options around!  Recently Mr. Food posted a recipe for homemade fruit pockets.  Similar to what my boys like, but EASY!  You use a pie crust and some fruit or jelly or the filling.  I used some pear butter and they turned out delicious!  You can add a glaze or leave them plain. 

Here's the recipe!
1 (14.1-ounce) box rolled refrigerated pie crust
1/4 cup strawberry preserves or your favorite flavor
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoon milk
Decorative sugar for garnish (optional)

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.
