You may have indulged in frozen toaster pastries from time to time. We totally have. (That icing? Come onnnn.) However, this recipe for homemade toaster pastries is a million times better. Sure, we bake ours in the oven, but we also have a few shortcuts to make preparing them pretty darn simple.

RELATED: Breakfast Hand Pies

Makes 12 servings

1 egg

4 sheets store-bought puff pastry

2¼ cups strawberry jam

1 cup confectioners' sugar

3 tablespoons heavy cream, or more as needed

½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. In a small bowl, whisk the egg with 1 tablespoon water to combine. Set aside.

3. Roll out each sheet of puff pastry on a lightly floured surface just until it is slightly flattened. Use a knife or pizza cutter to cut each sheet into 6 even rectangles (about 3 inches by 5 inches each).

4. Transfer 12 of the rectangles to the prepared baking sheets. Scoop 3 tablespoons of the jam into the center of each rectangle.

5. Brush the egg wash around the edges of each pastry. Top each pastry with the remaining rectangles and then use your fingers to press the dough all around the edges to seal.

6. Cut a small vent into the center of each pastry and then brush the egg wash all over. Bake until the pastries are golden brown, 18 to 22 minutes. Let cool completely.

7. In a small bowl, whisk the confectioners' sugar with the heavy cream and vanilla extract to combine. Whisk until smooth; add more cream a little at a time, as needed, so the icing is a drizzling consistency.

8. Drizzle the icing over the cooled pastries. Serve immediately.
