Pop, Lock, and Drop

(We were enjoying our champagne and chocolate comas way too much to take pictures. Forgive us?)
To kick off what was sure to be a most excellent (and amnestic) weekend, we rolled out of bed way earlier than usual for a Saturday and whipped up a batch of homemade Pop Tarts. Our filling of choice was a combination of Nutella and orange marmalade, but the possibilities are endless. These take about 10 minutes to construct, taste great, and make Brunch guests think that you're a fancy, culinary genius.

Nutella and Orange Pop Tarts
Recipe after the jump

1 package refrigerated pie crust (2 sleeves of dough)
Orange Marmalade
1 egg, beaten
Raw sugar or cocoa powder (opt)

Preheat oven to 375. Unroll dough onto a clean work surface. Using a pizza cutter or sharp paring knife, trim all four sides into a square and cut into four uniform strips. Spread Nutella and a dollop of marmalade on the bottom half of each strip. Fold top half of top over the filled portion and press edges to secure. Using a fork, poke holes in the top of each Pop Tart. Brush tops with egg wash and sprinkle wish raw sugar or cocoa powder. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.
