Homemade Pop-tarts

I've had several people ask for the recipe for these over the last week, so I thought I'd share here too!


They were pretty simple to make, but did take a little more time because the kiddos helped throughout the entire process, which made it a little sweeter.

 

Homemade Pop-tarts


Ingredients:


Pastry:

1 Cup Milk

1/4 Cup Butter

2 TBS Maple Syrup

1 tsp Vanilla

1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder

2 1/2 Cups Flour


Filling:

1 Cup Apples (peeled and chopped)

Sugar (to taste)

Cinnamon (to taste)

1 Cup Powdered Sugar

Milk


-OR-

You can use any kind of jelly or pie filling


Icing:

1 TBS Butter

Dash of Vanilla

1-1 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar

Dash of Milk or Heavy Whipping Cream

Cinnamon to Taste (Optional Based on Filling)


Directions:


Pastry:

Mix All Ingredients

Roll out on floured surface

Cut into desired shapes. We used a knife to cut rectangles and a bunny cookie cutter.


Place in pairs on an oiled/buttered cookie sheet.


Filling:

On medium heat, place peeled & chopped apples in a pan with butter, sugar, and cinnamon. Stir until apples appear soft.

Place cooked apples, powdered sugar, and a dash of milk into food processor. Blend until consistency is just a little runny. You may have to add more milk or powered sugar to get the right mix.

Spread mix over pastry on pan and cover with another pastry.

Use a fork to seal the edges.

Use some excess butter to cover the tops and edges for a nice brown appearance.


------- *You can also just use jam or jelly here to save time on this step.


Bake at 350* for 10-ish minutes until pop-tarts have a nice brown appearance and look done.


While pop-tarts are cooling, make the icing.


Icing:

Mix butter, vanilla, powder sugar, and dash of milk. Stir until consistency is icing-like. We used a little more milk to make it spread easier for the kiddos. You can also add sprinkles for a fun touch.


Spread over warm pop-tarts and enjoy!
