Most people have childhood memories of waking up in the morning and having pop tarts for breakfast. These versatile breakfast pastries are a bite of nostalgia and come in just about every flavor you can think of. There is the traditional blueberry or raspberry filling, as well as chocolate, and many more.
Over the years, there have been collaborations with Oreo, red velvet limited edition flavors, and even a pretzel sweet and salty pop tart. But one thing to know about this pastry is that it is actually quite simple to make at home, if you want control over the filling, and you can put as much frosted topping as you want.
- 1 pint fresh blueberries
- 1 pint fresh raspberries
- 1/2 cup Stevia In The Raw
- 1/2 cup Sugar In The Raw white
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 package refrigerated store-bought pie crust two crusts
- 1 cup confectioners sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Place blueberries in a small sauce pan. Add 1/4 cup Stevia in the Raw, 1/4 cup Sugar in the Raw Organic White, 2 Tablespoons cornstarch and 2 Tablespoons of water. Set saucepan over medium low heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until fruit is soft and mixture is thickened; about 20 minutes.
Repeat process with the raspberries and remaining Stevia in the Raw, Sugar in the Raw Organic White, cornstarch and water.
Allow fruit mixtures to cool before forming the pop tarts.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Roll out one pie crust to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut crust into 9 – 2×3 inch rectangles and place on prepared baking sheet. Add 1 Tablespoon of fruit mixture in the center of each piece of dough. Roll and cut second crust in the same manner as the first, and place the rectangles on top of the fruit mixture. Use a fork to crimp the edges of the pop tarts. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven, transfer pop tarts to a wire rack to cool completely.
For the glaze:
Mix confectioners sugar with vanilla extract and 1 Tablespoon of water. Spoon glaze over cooled pop tarts and garnish with sprinkles.
