Homemade Toaster Strudel

 Do you remember when the original Toaster Strudel came to a grocery store near you? I do. Oh how I loved them. We would beg my mom to buy them, and she would on occasion.

I reluctantly introduced my girls to the flaky goodness a few years ago. They loved them. Then I decided to go and get all ingredient conscious and decided to stop buying them. The girls keep begging me to buy them. No.

I knew there had to be a way to make them, I just didn't know how. So, off to Pinterest I went and discovered all sorts of different recipes, but they all consist of the same basic ingredients, Puff Pastry and Jam. That's it. Well, unless you count the egg you use to seal the little pockets of love. I wouldn't say this is a cheaper version, but I like that I can control the ingredients. I do eventually want to try my hand at homemade puff pastry, but for now I will buy it.

Homemade Toaster Strudel
Serves 8
2 Sheets (1pkg) Puff Pastry
8 Tbs Jelly
1 Egg - beaten
Glaze - recipe below

Preheat oven to  375 degrees.
Allow sheets of Puff Pastry to thaw on counter for 40 minutes, following package directions for thawing.
Once thawed, roll out pastry on a floured surface until thin (I am sorry, I did not measure the thickness, it was pretty thin, but not thin enough to see through).
Using a Pocket Pie Mold, or knife, cut 8 rectangles out of each sheet.
Place 8 rectangles on parchment lined cookie sheet.
Top each bottom piece with 1 Tbs Jelly.
Brush edges with egg-wash.
Place top piece on and seal with fork.
Poke a few holes in top of each pastry and brush with egg-wash.
Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes.
Allow to cool on wire rack and top with glaze.

1 Cup Powdered Sugar - Sifted
1 tsp Lemon Juice
3-6 Tbs Vanilla flavored Coffee Creamer

Place all ingredients in a small bowl and mix until desired consistency. Adding more or less creamer as preferred.
Spoon glaze over each pastry and allow to set before storing.

These are great for the freezer! Just flash freeze once glaze has set, freezing on cookie sheet for about an hour (or overnight). Transfer to a zip-top bag and store in freezer for up to 3 months.

If you do not want to store in the freezer, place in air-tight container and store in fridge for up to a week.

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f

Granny's Flitters

I love my family!  There are so many things I love about each person and also about all of us as a whole.  One of the things I love about my family is we love traditions. Today I am going to share just one of the many traditions we have.....FLITTERS! To me when I think of comfort food, I think of Flitters.  It was a special morning to wake up to the delicious smell of flitters frying in the morning.  It is one smell that every time I smell I am brought right back to childhood and great memories. I am not really sure where the name "flitters" came from or if someone just made it up.  I can tell you how it got started though! My Great, Great Uncle Orville's mom (Grandma Cook) baked bread.  On the days she would make extra bread dough she would invite all of her grandkids over for a flitter night.  She would make her bread and then the extra dough she would roll out, cut into strips and fry up for the kids to enjoy.  That tradition was then passed to my
