Blackberry Toaster Pastries
Filling:
6 oz fresh blackberries
3 tbl blackberry preserves, preferably sugar free
5 tbl water, divided
3 tbl cornstarch

Combine the blackberries, preserves and 2 tbl of water. Bring to a boil over medium heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Mash the berries with a fork so they're not whole anymore.
Combine 3 tbl of cold water with 3 tbl of cornstarch and stir until smooth. Pour slowly into the blackberry mixture.
The filling should thicken immediately.
Remove from the heat and chill.

Roll out the chilled dough on a floured surface to 1/8th of an inch thick. Cut out large rectangles. Place on a greased baking sheet and fill the center with 2 tbl of blackberry filling. Top with another rectangle and use a fork to pierce the edges shut. Prick 2 rows of holes in the top to allow steam to vent while cooking.
Brush the top with a small amount of cornstarch mixed with cold water.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
