Homemade Lemon Toaster Pastries

These Homemade Lemon Toaster Pastries are easy to make and delicious. I used store-bought lemon curd and pre-made pie dough to whip these up in just a few minutes.

Homemade Lemon Pop Tarts-2

Start by trimming the pie dough into a square, then divide both pie doughs into a total of eight rectangles. You will have four from each pie dough. PS – The pie dough scraps would be perfect for my Chicken Pot Pie Soup!

Homemade Lemon Pop Tarts-3

Brush the edges with egg wash and fill with about a tablespoon of lemon curd. Keep lemon curd away from the edges so the dough will seal together properly. If a little leaks out, no worries!

Homemade Lemon Pop Tarts-4

Use a fork to seal the edges all the way around, then use a tooth pick to poke a few holes through the top layer of pie dough.

Brush with egg wash and bake at 425 degrees for about 12 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown.

Top with lemon glaze and rainbow sugar sprinkles and enjoy!
