Homemade Poptarts

Making homemade Poptarts has been on my to-do list for over a year, since I tried Ted's Bulletin's Poptarts, and then again when I tried Woodberry Kitchen's Poptarts. If you use pre-made pie crust, like I did, this is totally easy. This recipe makes six Poptarts.

Pair with: Ice-cold milk

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

Two (2) 9" premade pie crusts
Six (6) teaspoons of filling -- I used homemade strawberry jam from a good friend, and Nutella
Egg wash
Sugar to top

Preheat oven to 375F degrees.
Roll out pie crust and cut into rectangles.
Spoon one teaspoon of filling onto a rectangle and top with another rectangle.
Crimp the edges.
Repeat until all of your pie crust is gone.
Brush all Poptarts with egg wash.
Place all Poptarts on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove and let cool.
Brush lightly with egg wash again and top with sugar.

Nutella doesn't melt very well, so if you want to use it, make sure to spread it around, rather than just spooning it in. You can also use chocolate chips for a much more melty experience.
