Make your own Pop Tarts

These look pretty good without preservatives ... and have many more options that those "pop tart" thingies ..

Serves: 5
Serving Size: 1


  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour + extra for dusting Silicone Wonder® Mat
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • ¼ tsp. coarse kosher salt
  • 1 stick (½ cup) cold unsalted butter, cut into tbsp.
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1–2 tbsp. cold water, if necessary
  • 5 tbsp. favorite jam or apple sauce
  • 2 tbsp. milk for brushing the pastries
  • Sprinkles if desired
Glaze (optional)
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp. milk
  1. Place flour, sugar, and salt into base of Power Chef fitted with blade attachment. 
  2. Add in half of the cut butter pieces. Cover and pull cord until butter has been cut into small pea size pieces. 
  3. Repeat with remaining butter.
  4. Pour flour mixture into medium bowl and add in egg. 
  5. Stir together and add cold water as necessary to make dough come together. 
  6. Seal bowl and place in refrigerator until dough is thoroughly chilled, about an hour.
  7. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  8. Dust Silicone Wonder® Mat with flour and roll out dough as thin as possible on mat, between ¼–⅛″T.
  9. Straighten edges with the edge of the Silicone Spatula so the dough is a large rectangle. 
  10. Cut rectangle into at least eight rectangles and use the scraps to make one more.
  11. Place about 1 tbsp. of jam onto one piece of dough and brush milk on all the edges. 
  12. Place another piece of dough on top and seal with the tines of a fork. Repeat until all pastries have been made. 
  13. Brush the tops of pastries with milk and pierce 2–3 times with a fork.
  14. Place onto baking sheet lined with Silicone Wonder® Mat
  15. Bake for 20–25 minutes or until golden brown.
  16. When cooled, top with glaze if desired.

Optional Glaze

  1. Whisk together powdered sugar and milk until glaze is formed. 
  2. Drizzle over pastries and top with sprinkles.
I really like this recipe.  I can see it used for a breakfast on the run, or for your kids/grandkids.  I can also see these as a nice dessert for either a lunch box or a small gathering on the deck.  Yes it could make you feel like a kid again.

If you would like to grab any of the Tupperware pieces used in this recipe, you can always shop at my Tupperware site, any day or night (or holiday).
Personally I love the Power Chef and use it many times a week.  Have a question, let me try and answer it for you.
