Homemade Pop Tarts!
I have to say the eggs and Bloody Mary’s got a “meh” and the Brown-Sugar-Glazed Bacon was good but I think I’ll stick with my favorite bacon recipe of all time: Sweet and Spicy Bacon. BUT the Homemade Pop Tarts were awesome! First of all, I love the concept of the recipe, it’s homemade pop tarts people, who doesn’t love that?
When Alex and I were making the dough – with its two sticks of butter – we knew the dough was going to be perfectly flaky and delicious. The chilling time was three hours and that was sucky just because we were dying to try them. You simply cut the dough up and then place strawberry preserves inside. Sprinkle with powdered sugar once baked and you are done. I’m glad I had the baking prowess of Alex to help with this, because as a true baking novice they would not have turned out as well as they did. If you are an avid baker these are perfect for you, if not, I can lend you Alex if you would like. 😉 Make these and enjoy the rest of the week!
