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.”
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.
Here’s what that translates to:
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.
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.
Put a scant tablespoon of filling on it.
Get you another square and cover, pressing down with a fork to seal. Brush with butter, then sprinkle with salt.
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!
