  • 2 cups AP flour
  • 1 cup unsalted butter 2 sticks
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • 1 egg

Egg Wash Finish

  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp milk


  • Your favorite fruit jam


  • In a food processor pulse the flour and salt for 2 seconds. Add the butter and pulse a few times until the butter is the size of peas. (Alternatively, grate the butter on a cheese grater and roll flour and butter between your fingers until achieving the same texture.) Add the water and pulse a few more times. The dough will look like a pile of wet crumbs, it does not need to come to a ball. Remove the dough from the food processor and dump on a large piece of Saran wrap. Pick up the corners and twist tightly to make the dough form a solid ball, then press the dough into a disk. If it's still crumbly, gently press with your palms, but do it quickly, you don't want to melt the butter.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pie crust dough into an oblong shape, roughly 1/8th of an inch thick. Using a pizza cutter or flour scraper trim edges to form a crisp rectangle. Cut into 8 equal rectangular pieces.
  • Whisk together the remaining egg and milk. Brush each piece of dough with egg wash.
  • Place 2 Tbsp jam in the center of half of the rectangles. Top each piece with a second piece of dough, egg washed on the inside. Use a fork to crimp the edges. Brush the tops with egg wash and use the fork to poke holes in the top for the steam to release.
  • Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.


You can use homemade jam if you so desire, but a good store bought will also be fine.
