Homemade Poptarts9:32 AM
The kids and I made them again this weekend and I changed up my recipe just a bit.
(makes approximately 16)
For this recipe you will need:
2 - Refrigerator pie crusts (I use the ones in the box, but homemade is fine too)
2-3 Tablespoons melted butter
Your favorite Jelly or Jam
1 egg (optional)
granulated sugar (optional)
|Allow the crust to sit outside the refrigerator for a few minutes.|
Room temperature dough is less likely to crack.
I prefer to use a store bought refrigerated pie crust, but you can certainly use home made.
|Store bought crust works GREAT for this recipe.|
I cover my cutting board in plastic for this recipe. The dough is less likely to stick to the plastic covered board.
|Add a thick layer of jam|
|Fold the dough in half and cut out the tarts|
|Use a fork to crimp the edges of the tart|
In a bowl, combine the egg with 1 Tablespoon of water to create an egg wash.
|Egg Wash makes the tarts nice and brown|
|Brush the top of the tarts with egg wash|
Lightly sprinkle the tarts with sugar.
|A little sugar for extra sweetness|
|Bake until lightly brown|
The jam in these tarts hold a LOT of heat and can easily burn your mouth. Please allow them to cool thoroughly before you attempt to eat them.
