The pop tarts were surprisingly easy to make. The dough is a basic pie crust. I let it rest in the fridge before rolling it out.
I poked some holes in the tops to try to prevent them from bursting, crossed my fingers and put them in the oven. They took about 25 minutes to bake and came out pretty and golden brown. The tops puffed up a bit, but it didn't seem to affect the tarts. And only two of them leaked some jelly out of the side (I'm thinking because I didn't seal them enough), but they still had jelly on the inside.
I let them cool and then frosted them with a simple glaze made of powdered sugar and milk. I decorated them with sprinkles, just like real pop tarts. The red sprinkles were for the guava tarts and the strawberry were green and red sprinkles (just like the store-bought ones).
Coffee talk is always such a great time. It was nice to get together with the Mason Moms and catch up on life and, as always, hear great stories from the viejas.
