These mini breakfast tarts are full of Smuckers Fruit and Honey, so you know they’re good! This is a simple but special breakfast treat.
Lucy loves to bake. If she sees me in the kitchen with my ingredients out, she completely flips her lid. Any toy she might have been playing with gets thrown to the wayside and she runs into the kitchen. We’ve got a small stepladder in the corner that she draaaaagggs out, then she hands me her mini apron, all the while shouting, “Lucy help, too!! Lucy help, too!”
I love watching her dump ingredients into bowls as she bites her tongue in concentration. It’s the cutest thing in the land. But I’ll be honest. There are times I’ve been in a hurry to get something done, so I try to “sneak bake.”
Sneak baking means baking as quietly as humanly possible. There are no clanging measuring cups or oven doors loudly banging shut. Oh no. Sneak baking requires one to be light on their feet and possess cat-like reflexes.
Which probably explains why I always get caught.
There have been quite a few instances of flour being dumped on the floor on accident. Or in the dog’s hair. Or down my shirt. As it turns out, tiny hands struggle with heavy measuring cups. So I’ve been finding a few quick and EASY treats that Lucy can help with while NOT making a huge mess.
These little tarts? They’re in our regular rotation!
Smuckers Fruit and Honey is my new favorite spread to use in our little tarts. It’s naturally sweetened with honey, so it’s not overly sweet. I love Triple Berry the best!
This spread works beautifully for baking, because it’s so smooth. It spreads and bakes up like a dream.
Smuckers Fruit and Honey Spread is sold at Walmart, which is perfect because it’s where I do my regular grocery shopping. Just look where you normally find the jams and jellies!
To make these little tarts, Lucy and I start by preheating the oven to 400 degrees. We then line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
We then carefully roll our pie crust out onto a lightly floured board. You could use your favorite homemade recipe, but we prefer store bought refrigerated pie crust. It’s a huge time saver and I don’t always have a ton of time in the mornings! Two crusts usually come per box, which is enough for about 12 little tarts.
Using a 2 inch cutter or class, we cut circles out of the crust. This is a perfect job for Lucy!
We then spoon a bit of Smuckers Fruit and Honey into the center of each tart, leaving a border around each.
I then brush the edges with a bit of whisked egg white (I only need one for the whole batch) and top with another pie crust circle. Using a fork dipped in flour, we seal the edges of each pie and poke holes in the top.
Brush the top of each tart with egg white, then sprinkle just a little bit of granulated sugar on top.
Bake for about 10 minutes or until dark golden brown all over.
These aren’t too sweet, so they go perfectly with a cup of hot tea or a special treat served with eggs and bacon. Kind of a fun change up from typical toast.
I hope you love these as much as we do. Enjoy!
