For the filling

For the glaze

  • ¾ cup powdered sugar sifted
  • 3-4 teaspoons milk possibly more
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Lightly dust a work surface with flour.
  • Working one sheet at a time, roll out the pie crusts to about a 1/8" thickness and cut into 3" x 4" rectangles. You should get 6 rectangles out of each dough roll.
  • Place 12 of the dough rectangles onto baking sheets. These will be the bottoms of the tarts.
  • Beat the egg with 1 tablespoon water and brush onto the crusts.
  • Make the filling by combining all ingredients and place 1 heaping tablespoon onto the center of each tart bottom. Do not get the filing within 1/4" of the edges of the dough.
  • Place the remaining dough rectangles on top of the bottoms and press down along the edges with your fingers to seal. Use a fork to then crimp the edges.
  • Brush tops with egg wash.
  • Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and let cool completely.
  • Make the icing by combining all the of ingredients, beating with a fork. Add more milk if the mixture is too thick, but don't add too much or it'll be too thin.
  • Brush icing on top of tarts.
  • To serve, reheat in a toaster or toaster oven.
