Pop tarts 

These home made pop tarts are amazing!!! You can fill them and top them with anything you want! So easy to make. They are refined sugar free if you don’t use the glaze. My flavours so far have been – blueberry with a blueberry glaze (my fave)

– Apple butter with a cinnamon glaze 

– chocolate and peanut butter with a chocolate glaze 

Here’s the recipe for the glazed blueberry ones but have fun and mix it up!! Make your own pastry is you want……..

Ingredients – 

💜1 pack ready rolled short crust pastry

💜1 punnet blueberries

 💜2 tablespoons agave nectar (or honey – NO HONEY UNDER 12 months, or maple syrup)

 💙For the glaze (optional)

💜Icing sugar -about 1 tablespoon 💜1 tsp of the blueberry jam

💜1 tablespoon lemon juice

 💙For the jam-

 💜I MADE MY JAM THE NIGHT BEFORE

💜Rinse the blueberries

 💜Chuck in a pan with the sweetener of your choice

💜Bring to the boil and simmer for about 10 minutes till thickened (make sure it doesn’t over heat and caramelise)

💜Pop in a jar and once cooled a bit pop in the fridge to set (at least a few hours)

 💙For the poptarts-

💜Preheat oven to 220c

 💜Split your pastry sheet into 8 rectangles

 💜On the bottom 4 spoon 2 teaspoons of the jam into the centre of the rectangle (make sure you hold back a tsp for the glaze if you’re making it)

💜Cover with the top rectangle and seal the sides with a fork

💜Place the tarts on a baking tray lined with baking paper for about 16 minutes

 💜Cool on a cooling rack and serve when only slightly warm if desired (make sure that the filling isn’t still hot AT ALL as this could cause really bad burns) 

OR

💜wait until totally cool and glaze 

💙For the glaze-

💜Warm the tsp of jam with the lemon juice in a pan until melted 

💜Remove any large bits of blueberry and pour liquid into a bowl

💜Sieve the icing sugar into the liquid and mix (you may need a little more icing sugar depending on the amount of liquid you get from the jam)
