Pop-Hearts (Nutella Filled Hand Pies)

[Photographs: Jessie Oleson Moore]

In this toothsome homemade take on a commercial classic, a tender, flaky heart shaped crust is filled with Nutella, then baked to crispy-on-the edges, soft-on-the-inside perfection. A healthy dollop of confectioners' sugar glaze with rainbow sprinkles makes these treats as adorable as they are sweet.

Best of all? These treats come together in just about half an hour (including bake time), so you can wake n' bake with ease.

Important note: Trust me, I feel slightly sheepish telling you this, but please don't put homemade Pop-Hearts in a regular toaster. Re-heat in a toaster oven or regular oven. This homemade glaze doesn't stay put in the same manner of the store-bought variety!
