I love homemade pop tarts. I first realized how easy they were to make when I made some pumpkin pie pop tarts last year. The morning I made these I didn’t really have enough puff pastry, I just had a little bit left over from a cobbler I had made over the weekend. So I decided to make mini versions with blueberries.
I actually really loved the mini versions as you can have one or two with an over easy egg for a full breakfast, or you can just take one on your way out the door for an easy and delicious morning snack.
Warning: if you eat these ‘on the go’ you will arrive at your destination with flaky bits of crust on your blouse or dress. If you feel like have tiny bits of food on you is an acceptable way to be… well… join the club.
Bake at 350 for 22-28 minutes until golden and crispy.
I then made a simple glaze out of 4-5 tablespoons melted butter with 1 tablespoon cream and powdered sugar whisked in. I just kept adding powder sugar until I got the consistency I wanted, I think I used about 3/4 cup by the end.
Or you could get crazy and fill them with bananas and peanut butter or maybe…. like… nutella. Just saying.
