Fill these festive Christmas Breakfast Pastries with chocolate spread, jelly, or pie filling then surprise your kids on Christmas morning with a smiling Santa Claus, a merry little elf, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, a sweet teddy bear, or a frosty Snowman.
Your kids are going to be so excited to wake up to find these on their breakfast plate and you will be thrilled to know just how easy they are to make.
Not that Christmas morning isn't exciting enough. Am I right?
With all the wrapping paper flying they might not be at all interested in eating breakfast, but I'm sure they'll take a break for these cute little treats.
To make these cute homemade Pop-Tart® style pastries, you'll need a Wilton Christmas Make-a-Face Cookie Cutter Set which has five cookie cutters and stamps that allow you to add the most expressive faces to your cut outs.
You can use the cutters and stamps to make cookies then decorate them with icing, but for this food craft all you have to do is cut, fill, and stamp.

Unroll one roll of pie dough. Cut using an assortment of cookie cutters. Set on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Spoon the filling of your choice into a disposable pastry bag or zip top bag. Snip off the tip and pipe onto the pie dough shapes leaving at least ¼ inch boarder around the edge.
Unroll the second dough. Cut the same shapes you cut before. Press the appropriate face stamp onto each pie dough shape.
Brush egg wash over the backside of these shapes and set over the filling on the matching shapes. Press the seams together.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Remove the pastries from the refrigerator, then brush the tops with egg wash and sprinkle with sugar, if using.
Bake for 7-10 minutes until lightly golden brown.
Allow to cool slightly, then serve.
