Strawberry Pop Tarts

Strawberry Pop Tarts

Well, my quest for pumpkin was unsuccessful last weekend. Seriously, the entire shelf was gone. Nothin. So no pumpkin treats quite yet. I guess I'll have to pace myself.

But that is okay because I get to share these amazing beauties with you. Strawberry Pop Tarts. Yep, just like the ones you ate when you were little, minus the foil wrapper but much, much better. I love these so much. 

I remember being in college and grabbing a foil 2 pack before heading out then eating them in class. Forget the toaster, I  just ate them plain. Sugary sweet flaky processed goodness. Obviously, I was super healthy during college.  Weren't we all?

This grown up version still has the sugary sweet flaky goodness of the original, but a homemade feel that makes everything better.

 First things first, I am going to share the pie crust recipe I use with these pop tarts, but don't let that scare you off. I'm not going to lie to you and tell you pie crust is a breeze. Pie crust is time consuming and slightly annoying, but the pay off is big.  However, if you don't have time or simply just don't wanna, then you can use a pre made pie crust from the grocery store. Same idea, a whole lot less effort. Plus they still taste damn good. Don't worry, your secret is safe with me.

These are amazing when warm, but still just as good when cool. Give these a try and let me know what you think. You can make other flavors of these pop tarts as well, I'll share those soon too. Did you eat Pop Tarts when you were young like I did? And were you as healthy as I obviously was in college? Let me know how these compare to the original.

Hello sweet childhood memories.
