Ingredients
  • 1/2 Package Laura Lynn Refrigerated Pie Crust
  • 1 Jar Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla Spread
  • 1/4 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • Sprinkles
Servings: 8
Instructions
  1. Assemble your ingredients. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat.

  2. Lightly flour your clean countertop. Unroll 1 pie crust and using a rolling pin, roll out slightly and seal any cracks. Then, using a 3- 1/2 inch heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out as many hearts as you can. Re-flour your counter top if necessary. Gather the scraps of dough into a ball, then, roll out the dough to the same thickness as previous and cut more hearts. My dough yielded 16 hearts, this will vary based on what size cutter you use. Its ideal to get an even number because each tart takes two hearts.

  3. To make your Heart Tarts, place half the hearts on your baking sheet. Then, top one heart with 1 teaspoon of Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla Spread. Brush edges of tart lightly with water, then place a second heart on top of the first tart. With a fork, firmly press edges to seal.

  4. Using the fork, poke a few holes in the top crust of the tart to let steam escape.

  5. Place on middle rack of oven and bake 8-10 minutes, until lightly browned. These are dark brown, don't be like me, keep an eye on them. Move to wire rack to cool.

  6. Make the glaze while the Heart Tarts are cooling. Place 1/4 cup powdered sugar into a small bowl and stir in 1 tablespoon of milk and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract. Stir until smooth. Spoon the glaze over the cooled Heart Tarts, then top with sprinkles.

A twist on individual apple tarts that everyone is sure to love. Because, BACON!

We baked our tarts on our Big Green Egg in the Lodge Cast Iron Mini Cake Pan. To do this, preheat your Egg to 400 degrees with pizza stone and bake for approx. 25-30 minutes or until pie crust is browned and filling is bubbly and topping looks happy.

Oven directions listed in recipe below.

  4. Lightly sprinkle work surface with flour. Unroll 1 pie crust and using a 4 inch round cutter, cut dough into 7 circles. You will have to re-roll your dough scraps to get 7, but it will work. Gently press the dough into your greased muffin tins or Lodge Cast Iron Mini Cake Pans. Sprinkle the bottom of each tart with cornstarch, this will prevent soggy crust. Nobody likes soggy pie crust.

  5. Spoon apple mixture into each tart and top with bacon streusel.

Locally grown fruit is the best part of summer and Georgia Grown peaches are one of my absolute favorites. Last week I bought a box of “scratch and dent” peaches at Jaemor Farms. While they may not be as pretty as the first quality peaches, they are perfect for making ice cream and peach sorbet.

Here’s a delicious Peach Sorbet recipe inspired by Martha Stewart, no ice cream maker required, just your food processor.

Georgia Grown peaches must be sweeter then the peaches Martha gets, as I was able to increase the quantity of fruit and decrease the quantity of sugar.
