I honestly did not expect these to work this well. With a super simple, made up crust recipe, random odds and ends of fillings and a little time, a few one of a kind(any irony there? Yes, no, maybe?) crumbly, delicate, sweet(but not too sweet) flaky, fresh, simply delightful jems were created. (yay.) (hmm, too many words maybe?) I was very pleasantly surprised by the, well, perfection of these treats, especially the crust (you can't really go wrong with these fillings. Hmm, apples, peanut butter, marmalade; hard stuff to handle, huh?) it was delicate, and buttery, and flaky and(unlike some crusts I could mention...) flavorful! To me, the perfect crust-to-filling ratio is thin crust and tons of filling(except with super-sweet fillings like jams) and these had just that! Bon appetit! (that was extremely cheesy wasn't it?)
Step 1: The crust... (dramatic piano music...) (you know the one: tun, tun tuuun...)
Best. Dough. Ever.
