These are the most fun ever.
Makes approx 8,
2 cups flour
1/2 cup shortening
3-5 Tbsp of ice water (or more)
1 tsp salt
Filling and Topping:
1/2 tub EatPastry cookie dough (of course) any flavor, I used chocolate chip
2-3 crushed cookies of any sort you like! I used Trader Joe Joe's
Combine the flour and salt in a mixing bowl. Using a pastry blender, or 2 knives, cut the shortening into the flour until it resembles course sand. Then add the water 2 Tbsp at a time til the dough forms. Be sure not to use too much water, it makes your dough less appealing and tasty.
Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
On a floured surface roll out your dough into one large rectangle (about 1/8 inch thick). If you want to make less than 8, just half the dough and freeze it to use at another time. It will last a month if you wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or foil.
Using a pizza cutter, slice the dough into 5 inch rectangles, or just so they are all even. They don't have to be 5"
Take about one and 1/2 Tbsp of cookie dough and place it in the middle of every other rectangle. Then cover each one with the non-filled rectangles. Using a fork press down all sides of the dough rectangles. You can do this after you transfer them to your baking pan, just be sure the filling doesn't fall out. I use a large spatula to move them.
Bake the tarts for 15 minutes until crust is very lightly tanned. While they are in the oven you can make your frosting glaze by combining 1 cup confectioners sugar with 1 Tbsp melted margarine, and 3 Tbsp of almond milk. Mix until combined, and add more almond milk if necessary. You want it to be a little runny, but not too much that it falls right off the spoon. Think smooth and creamy. You can dye the frosting any color you want, I used purple :)
Remove the tarts from the oven and let sit for 2 minutes. Then glaze each one with the frosting and top with crushed cookies!
YUM YUM YUMMMM.
