Homemade Raspberry Pop-Tarts

Sunday mornings are perfect for making homemade, baked goods! One of my favorite childhood treats- The Pop-Tart, inspired this recipe. However, in this recipe I am using all natural products, whole foods, and no preservatives. Bake a large batch on Sunday so you can have breakfast for the whole week without worrying each morning what to eat! I hope you all enjoy! Let me know your thoughts in the comments section :)



Homemade Raspberry Pop-Tarts Recipe:


Yield: 12 Pop-Tarts

Cook Time: 1 Hr 20 Min


Ingredients:

- 2 ½ Cups Whole Wheat Flour

- 1 tsp Sea Salt

- 1 Tbsp Succanat Sugar

- 4 oz Vegetable Shortening

- 4 Tbsp Ice Water

- 6 oz Earth Balance or Coconut Oil or Butter

- ½ Cup Raspberry Jam

- Cold water or Egg Wash: 1 Egg & 1 tsp Cold Water

- Icing:

o 1 ½ Cups Powdered Sugar

o 2-3 Tbs Almond Milk or Regular Milk

o ¾ tsp Cinnamon


Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Whisk flour, salt, and sugar together in a small bowl. Using a pastry cutter, add shortening and Earth Balance/coconut oil/ butter to flour. Combine until mixture resembles crumbs.

3. Add ice water, mix and form into a flat disk. Cover with plastic wrap. Let rest 20-30 minutes in refrigerator.

4. Remove from fridge and let warm to room temperature for a few minutes.

5. Next, roll out the dough into two large rectangles.

6. Cut into pop tart shapes- you can do round, square, or even rectangular. Egg wash or water wash pop-tart edges and add about 2 tsp of raspberry jam.

7. Place the top layer over the filling and seal the edges using a fork. Egg wash the top if desired, or brush with melted earth balance.

8. Bake for 13-15 minutes at 375°. Prepare icing while pop-tarts are baking.

9. Once cooled, spread icing over pop-tarts and sprinkle with sprinkles or cinnamon. Let harden for 10-15 minutes until you serve or box up, enjoy!


Tips/Tricks:

- After egg washing, you can sprinkle sanding sugar over the top for added crunch and style factor!

- The thinner the dough is rolled out, the faster the dough will bake!

- If you like more jam to crust ratio, add another 1 tsp of raspberry jam.
