Today in the kitchen I decided to try something super new. I made homemade pop-tarts!!! I got this recipe from here. They were very colorful and tasted pretty good!
You will need:
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons golden sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup cold butter
1 egg, plus extra for brushing
1 tablespoon milk
½ jar strawberry jam
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup powdered sugar
Pink food coloring
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Mix the flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl.
Rub the butter in with your fingers until you get a breadcrumb-like consistency.
Mix in the egg and milk until a dough forms. Keep adding milk if the dough is too dry.
Heat the jam and cornstarch over a low heat until warm and set aside.
Roll out the dough and cut out 12 rectangles.
Lay out 6 rectangles on a non-stick baking tray.
Add jam to the center of the rectangle, spreading out slowly. Be sure to leave a 1 cm border around the edges.
Brush the edge with egg.
Lay the remaining rectangles on top of each pastry.
Use a fork to press down around the edges.
Poke a hole in the top of each pop-tart.
Brush each one with egg wash.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden. Let cool completely.
To ice, combine the powdered sugar, food coloring, and a little bit of water until you have a thick icing.
Spread icing over each pop-tart.
Add the sprinkles and drizzle strawberry sauce over the top of each one.
