Snacks on Snacks on Snacks, Part Deux: Poptarts

I thought,” you know? This has been a good week. I love y’all a ton. Y’all deserve TWO snack recipes. Y’all deserve my poptart recipe.”

Get in my mouth, heavenly beings.

In grad school, there was this amazing bakery that had homemade poptarts sometimes, and whoa, were they good. I would buy all of them when they made those. When I moved away, I just figured out what to do. You can make any kind of poptart your little heart desires. Look after the jump for the starting point.

Okay, first things first: Get your stuffs.

Starting point.

Starting point.

Here’s what that translates to:

1 recipe of pie crust

1-2 extra tablespoons of butter

6ish tablespoons of filling (you can make your own if you want, but any jam, jelly, or preserve will work great. I used a blend of 4 T orange marmalade to 2 T nutella. Up to you!)

a little bit of sugar for sprinkling (optional!)

I’ll assume you’ve assembled the pie crust, as per your instruction. It should look like this.

Completion!

Roll it out to about 1/4 inch thickness, then cut out some squares. I eyeballed it, but if you’re a little more precise, they’re about 3X5.

You can use an index card if you're too anxious to freehand it.

Put a scant tablespoon of filling on it.

This is a jam/nutella blend, but you can do whatever.

Get you another square and cover, pressing down with a fork to seal. Brush with butter, then sprinkle with salt.

Makes about 8, I guess. Depends on how you slice things up.

Bake for 10-15 minutes at 425, or until golden brown. Bask in the compliments. What filling will you be using today? Please tell me!
