    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 16

    Yield:

    tart

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Special equipment: scalloped ravioli cutter.
    2. 2
      Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
    3. 3
      Place the marinara sauce in a medium saucepan over medium heat and cook until reduced to a thick, jam-like consistency, about 30 minutes. There should be 1 1/2 to 2 cups of reduced sauce. Let the sauce cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes. Stir in the mozzarella cheese and prosciutto.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, place 1 piece of dough on a work surface. Roll the dough out gently until you can cut an 8 1/2 by 9 1/2-inch rectangle. Press the scraps into a small rectangle and roll it out to the same thickness as the other rectangle. Cut 3 rectangles from the large rectangle and 1 rectangle from the small rectangle. Each should measure 8 1/2 by 3 inches. Continue rolling and cutting the remaining pie dough.
    5. 5
      To form the tarts, place the rectangles on a work surface. Brush each rectangle with egg wash. Place a large spoonful of the marinara mixture in the middle of the bottom half of the rectangle. Fold the dough in half over the marinara mixture to make a 3 by 4-inch rectangle. Press the edges to seal. Using a scalloped ravioli cutter, trim the rectangles to make a decorative edge. Place the tarts on the baking sheets. Brush with egg wash and generously sprinkle with cheese. Bake until golden, about 20 to 25 minutes.

      Just a comment! I also think they would be great made with Puff Pastry dough. I will try it for sure. When I saw her make them I knew they would be good that way.:-)

      These little darlings were very simple to construct and were very well received last night for "movie night". I used a fork to press the edges and that worked a treat. Would happily make these again, adding perhaps a few of our favorite pizza toppings. Made for Spring 2009 PAC! Thanks for posting kittycara. (-:

      Excellent, kids and adults alike will love them. I think next time i am going to use pizza dough rather than pie dough. These are really home made pizza pockets, simple to do. Thanks for posting it. My pictures aren't pretty but shows the idea.
