Homemade Pop Tarts

DIY Toaster Pastries 

So, I recently bought a new book.  And quite frankly, I can't get enough of it!  I have only had it in the house for a couple days and already I have made about 5 things out of it with a list of 10 more to make in the next week or so.  

It is this book, Homemade Pantry...

I made the granola, I made the pie crust, I made the potato leak soup, and these...

Homemade pop tarts!  (ok, this is not my picture, it is the one off the front of the book, I may have forgotten to get a picture of theses before we ate them all.)  I am so excited to share these with you you can't even believe.  

So I did use her pie crust recipe just to see how I liked it compared with mine with a couple adjustments (because I can't leave well enough alone).  Nothing too drastic, I just substituted some whole wheat pastry flour for some regular flour and added some almond flour for flavor.  But really any great pie crust will work.  Here is the one I posted a while ago but if you have a favorite, do it up.  

First make you filling, I just made a simple cranberry peach filling.

Heat up some water, your cranberries, and some sugar (about a Tbsp),

peach jelly and when it boils add some corn starch.

Mix it up and let it sit till your ready to add it to the pie crust.  

Roll out your pie crust and cut into rectangles, as I apparently refuse to measure, I just cut about where I think I should.  But if you are a stick to the rules kind of girl, then by all means measure and cut.  

Brush your rectangles with an egg wash...

Add your filling.....

Place another rectangle on top and seal the edges...

Awesome right!!!!!  So, they may be more like pocket pies rather than pop tarts but really, who doesn't need pie for breakfast!
