With the snow comes my want for warm food. I crave warm breakfasts and my winter comfort foods. These toasties were good but I think I will try a different recipe next time I want to make these. In the end there were only 6 small-ish toasties. But they were a good, warm breakfast. Here’s the recipe.
Strawberry Toasties From The Love of Baking 2 cups All Purpose flour 3 Tablespoons granulated sugar 1 teaspoon salt 2-4 Tablespoons cold water 3/4 cup vegetable shortening 2/3 cup strawberry jam 1 egg Topping 1/2 icing sugar 4 Tablespoons coconut milk
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon sheet. Pour flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Using a pastry blender or your fingers, work in shortening until it resembles coarse crumbs with some small pea-sized pieces. Sprinkle 2 Tablespoons water over flour mixture. Using a fork, mix until dough is moist enough to hold together when pressed. Add more water by the Tablespoon if needed.
- Shape dough in a ball. Divide in half. Form each half into a rectangle. Wrap in plastic and chill for 30 minutes.
- On a piece of plastic wrap, role one rectangle into a larger rectangle measuring about 9″ by 12″. Cut into twelve equal pieces. On six pieces spread with 1 Tablespoon jam, leaving a 1/2″ border. Whisk egg with 1 Tablespoon water. On the other six, lightly brush with egg mixture. Sandwich egg-brushed side down pieces with jam pieces. Using prongs of a fork and press edges to seal, blacing each on a baking sheet. Reserve egg mixture.
- Topping Lightly brush tops with reserved egg mixture. Bake in preheated oven for 13-15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Stir icing sugar and evaporated milk. Spread over cooled toasties.
