Here at Cornaby’s we’ve been whipping up some amazing new jams including Apple Pie and Cherry Pie gourmet jams. I had a bottle of the Apple Pie jam sitting in the fridge and in a moment of dessert inspiration decided to make homemade pop tarts. How hard could it be?
The answer? VERY simple. This is a recipe anyone can do and it would be perfect to make with your kids as well. All you do for these homemade pop tarts is buy a box of puff pastry dough (available in your grocer’s freezer section) and let it thaw. Cut each sheet into nine squares. Fill the squares with a generous dollop of Apple Pie (Or Cherry or Raspberry…or…) jam and cover with a second square. Seal the edges and bake.
Store bought pop tarts are on notice…this homemade version is amazing!
Homemade Pop Tarts with Cornaby’s Jam
1 box (2 sheets) puff pastry dough, thawed
1 bottle Cornaby’s Apple Pie Jam
Roll out puff pastry and cut into nine squares per sheet. Dock squares with a fork to allow for steam to escape. Put 1-2 teaspoons, or a little more, of Cornaby’s Apple Pie jam in the center of 9 squares. You want the center to look full, but not so full that you can’t seal the edges. Place a second square on top of each pop tart and seal edges with your fingers. Move to a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes until brown and puffy.
Top with a powdered sugar glaze if desired.
