Buying pop-tarts is a thing of the past.
You can make them in 10 minutes, even with a fussy, over-tired baby on your hip.
Think about all those nasty Trans fats you're doing without! These things are 6 billion times better than the 10 year old boxed stuff- and they're fun too cause you can make them however you want with whatever fillings you want! Don't you love smart people like me?
I could have been more domesticated and made my own pie crust.....but it's Valentines day. So, that's that.
1 Box refrigerated Pie crust (2 crusts)
Real fruit jelly of any kind (I used Smuckers Strawberry Naturals)
1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
1/2 Tsp. Vanilla
10 Drops red dye (to be romantic)
3 Tsp. Milk/Water
Pre-heat oven to 425.
Roll out crust, and with a pizza cutter, cut off the round edges so the dough is a square.
Set edges aside.
Cut dough down the middle, then cut into whatever size rectangles you want.
Place 1-2 tsp. Jelly in the center of rectangle and place another piece on top, pressing edges together with a fork.
Make sure the edges are sealed all the way, cause of a few of mine weren't and the jelly overflowed a bit out.
I may have gotten over zealous and tried to put too much jelly inside.
Place pop tarts on an ungreased pan and bake for 7-8 minutes, til golden brown.
When cooled, glaze and sprinkle!
