New favorite pie dough treat

A few months ago one of my Facebook friends posted a link to a recipe for homemade pop-tarts.  This sounded like a fun thing to try.   When I read the recipe it looked to be just pastry dough with jam, and seemed pretty simple, but I never got around to trying a batch.  Recently, when I had some leftover pie dough, I thought it would be fun to try making jam sandwiches with them - like the pop-tart recipe.  We all loved the resulting treats!

I just rolled out my leftover dough, then cut it into rectangles.  I put some of my homemade peach jam on half of the rectangles, then topped with another piece of dough and pricked with a fork a few times.  They baked at 400 degrees for ten minutes or so.  Some weekend morning soon I will surprise my family by making a batch of these without waiting for leftover pie dough!
