Recipe by jess820
I found this online from Smitten Kitchen by way of King Aurthur flour. There were a few changes I made due to the use of whole wheat flour and the layout of the recipe was kinda hard to follow. The finished product is a lovely toaster pastry without all the nasty chemicals in the brand name version! Plus you can make whatever flavor you wish, such as pumpkin, Nutella, grape, where ever your imagination and taste buds take you. The filling recipes are for 9 pastries so increase the amount if you want all one flavor.
- 4 cups whole wheat flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 cups butter (4 sticks)
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 large eggs
- 3 -4 tablespoons milk
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 1 -1 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon (or to taste)
- 4 teaspoons flour
- 3⁄4 cup jam (any flavor)
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 9 tablespoons chocolate hazelnut spread or 9 tablespoons miniature marshmallows
