Homemade Pop Tarts

Homemade Pop Tarts

I don’t know what possessed me to make Homemade Pop Tarts the other day. Hausfrau gone wild? Seriously, I never really liked┬ápop tarts. Oh, I like the idea of them, a jammy filling nestled between two sheets of flakey, buttery pastry but the commercial variety┬ájust never did it for me.

Chipotle Pulled Pork Empanadas

Empanada Dough

Really the best - this is the proper dough that turns out with the giraffe like pattern that's the hallmark of a good empanada!

This is a beautiful, slightly lean dough. It makes 12 five-inch rounds of dough (you’ll need to use the scraps) about 1/8th of an inch thick. You can see how beautifully flaky this dough bakes up in Empanadas.

This works very well with four cups of filling, 1/3 of a cup in each Empanada.
