Sweet Italian Kisses

Sweet Italian Kisses
~subtitled: Chocolate Peanut Butter Mini Tartlets ala Me
I was talking to my girlfriend yesterday, asking her if she knew how to make pie dough. She said she didn't. I told her that if she learned to do this, not only could she make pies, but cinnamon rolls, tarts, quiche, sugared twists and I am certain many other tasty treats on the cheap.
I took a basic pie dough recipe and added two Tbs. of sugar to the dough for fun.
I rolled it out to about a 1/8 inch thickness. Grabbed a glass (use a round cookie cutter or a wine glass...whatever is convenient) and cut out an even number or circles.
Butter or grease a cookie pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
On half of the circles, I plunked on peanut butter. The other half got a spoonful of Nutella-but you could use a chunk of chocolate, a few chocolate chips or a Hershey's Kiss.
Grab a small bowl with water, dip your finger in and run it around the edge of your peanut butter circles-wetting the edge of dough slightly. Grab a circle of Nutella and place on top of peanut butter circle. Crimp around the edge with a fork to seal.
Place on prepared cookie sheet.
Crack an egg into a bowl, lightly beat with a fork. Add a tsp. of water to egg, beat again. Brush egg wash mixture over tartlets. Sprinkle on turbinado sugar if you have it...or regular sugar will work too.
Bake until golden, mine took about 10 minutes.

Ready to bake!


I should have made a double batch of pie dough,

as these disappeared immediately. Enjoy!

OK, u r amazing.

Maybe my kids, who cook better than I do, would like to try these today while we take down Thanksgiving decorations and put up CHRISTmas!

I wonder if apples cut up in tiny pieces with sugar and cinnamon would work? Hmmmm....

These are awesome. Are you the one who made your own version of pop-tarts too? It's so easy to get creative with these!
