Gluten Free Maple Cinnamon Breakfast Pastries

A few months ago Justin was out of town, and I wanted to surprise him with something special that would really be something just for him.  Justin eats Maple Cinnamon Pop Tarts every morning, and I thought the perfect thing would be to make him a homemade version with all natural ingredients..  I also have to admit, I used to love those pop tarts, but they have gelatin in them so I haven't eaten them since I was a kid.  So I also really wanted to taste a "pop tart" again!  So of course I made them gluten free.  Making these was a little time consuming for 8 pop tarts...but they were absolutely delicious!  Bursting with real maple syrup flavor and warmth from the cinnamon.  And most importantly, he absolutely loved them!

Also sorry I've been on a bit of a hiatus...I actually had surgery to fix the tendinitis in my wrist that started back when I was a full time decorator so my hand has been a little out of commission for a few weeks leading up to it and after.
