Blueberry Pop Tarts

Tool Kit:

  • Blueberry Syrup (see my previous post)
  • Pie Dough
  • The zest and juice of one lemon
  • 5 tablespoons of powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
  • A splash of water

Let’s Do This!!

First roll out your choice of pie dough and use a round cookie cutter to cut out perfect circles. Next, Take a spoonful of the blueberry syrup and plop it right in the center of one of the circles and place a second circle on top. Repeat until you’ve got them all filled.

Preheat the oven to 350F. While you wait for your oven to preheat,  take a fork and press down around the edges of each circle to close in the filling. Next, create your egg wash by mixing one egg and a splash of water. Take your egg wash and brush it on top of each circle poptart. Now make it your own by creating air vents of your choice. You can poke holes with your fork or get fancy and use a paring knife to create designs.

Place in the oven and start checking on them after 15 minutes. They should be golden brown and crispy.

Let them cool completely. 

You can eat them like this if you’d like or if you want to make it more like a true pop tart with icing and all. To make the icing, mix your lemon juice, zest, and powdered sugar. Dip each in the icing and if you want to add some color and extra flavor, mix some powdered sugar and leftover blueberry syrup and drizzle or spoon over them as well.

Now don’t be like me and get them stuck on a plate. Instead, Let them sit on a cookie sheet until the icing hardens. 

Enjoy!

Hi, I'm April and I love to eat. LOVE IT. I base my whole day around what and when my next meal is going to be. I love creating different dishes, some of which are meh and others are crave-worthy. However, I grew up in a family of people who went out to eat every night. My mother hates the very idea of cooking and uses the oven as storage. I had this desire to create, cook, and bake, but I didn't know how. So I started researching by watching cooking shows and reading every cookbook I could get my hands on and taught myself how to create the types of dishes I wanted to try but didn't want to go out and pay for. Here you will find all my favorite things to create as well as a sprinkle of some travel content. I hope to inspire you all to get out there and create and have fun in your kitchen and to travel the world and just overall eat great food.
