Easy homemade pop-tarts.
Serves: 6
  • 1⅓ cups (200g) plain flour
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 stick (115g) butter, cold
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • Jam, nutella, or whatever you want to fill them with.
  • 1 egg, beaten
  1. Place the flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt into the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.
  2. Cut the butter into small cubes, and then add to the mixer, and mix on a low speed until there are large flakes of butter.
  3. Mix the vinegar and water, and then slowly add a little at a time until the mixture looks like it's about to come together in a dough. Tip the dough out onto a work surface, knead the dough a few times to bring it together and divide into two pieces.
  4. Wrap in plastic and rest for 30 minutes in the fridge.
  5. Roll each piece out to a 3-4mm thick rectangle, and cut out 6 equal sized rectangles from each piece.
  6. Place a tbsp of nutella or jam onto half of the rectangles, brush the edges with beaten egg, and then top with the remaining pieces pressing the edges firmly to seal.
  7. Slash the tops to let steam out, then place on a lined baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes of until golden brown, then leave to cool for a while and eat!
