Jam Roll-ups
What's your Take?

There's no need for kids to get into a jam trying to prepare an elaborate meal for Mom on her special day. With just a little help from an adult or older sibling, your child can serve up a simple but equally impressive treat--mini pastries filled with Mom's favorite fruit preserves.

What you'll need

  • 1 premade 9-inch piecrust
  • All-purpose flour
  • Jam or preserves
  • Vegetable shortening
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons water

How to make it

  1. Have your child unfold the piecrust onto a lightly floured surface and spread a thin layer of jam or preserves onto the dough. With a butter knife, cut the crust into 20 pie slices, then roll up each wedge starting at its wider edge. Chill the roll-ups for at least 1 hour so that they will retain their shapes during baking.

  2. When you're ready to bake the roll-ups, heat the oven to 450 degrees. Then line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and grease the foil with shortening. Place the chilled pastries on the baking sheet, spacing them at least 2 inches apart. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned, then remove the sheet from the oven and transfer the pastries to a cooling rack.

  3. Now have your child stir together the confectioners' sugar and water in a bowl until smooth. Then he can spread the glaze onto the cooled pastries and serve them to Mom.
