There are a lot of foods I miss since becoming allergic to life. Chocolate bars, granola bars, instant noodles, and overly processed breakfast pastries top the list. So you can imagine my overexcitement when I started seeing Pop Tart recipes popping up on food blogs lately. I just had to try making one of my now potentially-fatal childhood favourites.
And holy shit, they are good. They're just what I remember always wishing Pop Tarts tasted like. Flakey and sweet, they leave you with that euphoric crack-like feeling that only the most delicious baking can deliver.
They're also a lot simpler to make than I thought they'd be. Just roll out some pastry and add some jam! Next time I'm going to make some chocolate ones.
Pop Tart Recipe:
Pie crust (homemade or bought. but seriously just make some it's not that hard, but it is that much better)
Preheat oven to 425*F.
Roll out pie crust and cut into 8cm wide and 16cm long strips.
Place 2 tsp of jam on the centre of the lower half of the pastry strip, and fold over the top half to encase the jam. Press sides closed with a floured fork.
Place on a greased or parchment covered baking sheet and bake at 425*F for 8-10 minutes.
When cool, cover with glaze and sprinkles.
1 cup icing sugar
1-2 tbsp milk (I used cream)
Whisk icing sugar and 1 tbsp of milk in a bowl. Gradually add more milk until desired consistency (syrup-like).
