Homemade Strawberry Pop-Tarts

Pop-tarts (hand pies) are a classic breakfast treat. Since my ‘jam’ is a fruit spread, recreating this recipe was a no-brainer. With so many options for fillings, I had to go with the classic, strawberry. It took me a couple of tries to get the pastry dough just right as my first dough turned out a bit too flaky and it didn’t hold up well being rolled. The second go made the cut, great for breakfast, pack and take on your next road trip, or enjoy anytime.

Author's Notes

Making the pastry in a food processor works best however it can definitely be done by hand.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
In a food processor, pulse the All-Purpose Flour (1 3/4 cups) , Granulated Sugar (2 Tbsp) , and Kosher Salt (3/4 tsp) to blend. With the processor running add the Unsalted Butter (1 stick) one piece at a time then add the Vegetable Shortening (2 Tbsp) .
Step 2
Add the Water (3 Tbsp) , one tablespoon at a time, mixing after each addition until the dough comes together. It should be smooth and not sticky. Remove from the processor and wrap in plastic and refrigerate for approximately 30 minutes.
Step 3
While the dough is chilling, line your baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut another piece of parchment approximately 3” x 4.5” to use as a guide for the pies.
Step 4
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Step 5
Roll the dough out onto a lightly floured surface to 1⁄8” thickness.
Step 6
Using the cut parchment as your guide, gently cut around the edges. Gather the leftover dough and continue to roll it out and cut the rectangles until you have 16 pieces.
Step 7
Spoon a generous tablespoon of Just Jan’s® Organic Strawberry Spread (1/2 cup) onto 8 of the pastry bottoms.
Step 8
Using a pastry brush dipped in Egg (1) wash, brush along the four edges then carefully place the top onto the strawberry-filled bottom.
Step 9
Crimp all edges with a fork, prick the top a few times with a knife, then brush with remaining egg wash.
Step 10
Bake for 30 minutes, turning halfway through until they are golden.
Step 11
Cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack. Let them cool completely. While they are cooling, prepare the icing.
Step 12
In a small bowl, combine the Powdered Confectioners Sugar (1/2 cup) , Milk (1/2 Tbsp) , and mix until smooth. Add the Just Jan’s® Organic Strawberry Spread (1/2 Tbsp) and stir until mixed well.
Step 13
Spread the icing on the pie (as much or little as you like) and let it set. These are delicious warm or cold!
