Homemade Strawberry Poptarts

My cousin and her husband recently bought a new house, and when they invited my entire family over for a housewarming slumber party last weekend I couldn’t pack my bags quick enough. Knowing full well that the majority of us would be bringing over appetizers, cocktails and things of that nature, I decided it made sense to bring something for us to enjoy Sunday morning. Enter: homemade strawberry poptarts. Significantly simpler to make than you’d imagine, lightyears ahead of the store bought variety, and almost too cute to eat. Almost.

FOR THE PASTRY
  1. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1 Tbsp. sugar
  3. 1 tsp. salt
  4. 1 cup unsalted butter, cut into rough 1" squares
  5. 1 large egg
  6. 2 Tbsp. milk
  7. 1 additional large egg, whisked (to help assemble)
  8. FOR THE FILLING
  9. 1/2 cup Jam or strawberry preserves (or filling of your choice, really)
  10. FOR THE FROSTING (optional)
  11. 1 Tbsp. cream cheese
  12. 3/4 cup icing sugar
  13. Juice from half a lemon
  14. 2-3 drops red food colouring (optional)
Instructions
  1. 1. Whisk together the flour, sugar, and salt. Pour into food processor, add pads of butter and pulse until butter is chopped into pea-sizes and mixture holds together.
  2. 2. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk and egg.
  3. 3. Transfer butter mixture to bowl, add milk mixture and mix with your hands until just combined. Feel free to knead the dough carefully on a lightly floured work surface.
  4. 4. Divide the dough in half, and, on a lightly floured work surface, roll each out to form two 9"x12" rectangles.
  5. 5. Once rolled, grab a ruler (no shame here!) and divide dough into nine 3"x4" rectangles. Use a sharp knife to make clean cuts.
  6. 6. Using a pastry brush, brush the whisked egg over half of your poptart squares (this will act as the "glue" binding the two pieces together).
  7. 7. Top each half with a spoonful of jam/preserves
  8. 8. Lay the other half on top, and seal edges by pressing a fork into each side.
  9. 9. Bake on a parchment lined pan at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool completely before adding frosting.
FOR THE FROSTING
  1. 1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl until well combined.
  2. 2. Frost poptarts & enjoy!
Notes
  1. And if pastry scares you, you can buy store bought pie dough, roll each piece out to a 9 x 12 square and cut as directed. I won't tell!
  2. Alternatively, you could consider filling them with cinnamon and sugar, nutella, or any preserves of your choice! The world is your oyster - go crazy!
