DIRECTIONS

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2.Add cake mix, 2 eggs, and melted butter and stir until combined until a soft dough forms. Add 4 to 5 tablespoons additional of flour until dough is no longer sticky. Lightly dust a clean work surface with flour and place dough on top. Dust the top of the dough with flour to avoid sticking as well. Roll out dough until very thin. Using a rectangular cookie cutter, cut out an even number of pastries.

3.Heat up strawberry jam in a small microwave safe bowl for 30 to 40 seconds until easily stirred.

4.Place the bottom of a pastry onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

5.Add jelly to the center of the pastry with a spoon or with a piping bag. Be sure not to add jelly too close to the edges. Top with a second pastry rectangle and gently press until the edges are lightly sealed. Crimp the edges with a fork. Add 2 to 3 fork holes for venting to each pastry. Repeat until completed and re-roll dough as necessary.

6.If desired, beat an egg yolk and add 1tablespoon of water and stir. Brush the top of each pastry with a light egg wash.

6.Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

7.Using an offset spatula or butter knife, frost each pastry and top with sprinkles from frosting lid. Serve and enjoy!
