Homemade pop tarts

Homemade pop tarts
I never had a Pop-Tart until college. I realize that for some people this may cause a shocked reaction on par with my husband’s the time I told him I’ve never watched Goonies before (or Jacob’s, upon discovering the internet). Obviously I grew up under a rock, right? Thus, given my proximity to concrete-like materials you’d think I have been better prepared for the texture of the one I purchased from the vending machine in the basement of my freshman dorm (not at 4 a.m. or anything, either, nope, not this angel!). But I was not. It was like particle board, but even particle board has a fresher aroma. I understand that if I had toasted it, my experience might have been better. I can’t believe I waited so long to make these. Most recipes I have come across use a pie dough for the pastry but I was really stuck on getting a crust that was a little more sturdy — one with an egg.

Some of us will be celebrating Mother’s Day next month, but it’s more than once a year that many of us cook with a pan, a wooden spoon or another piece of cookware passed on to use from the kitchens of our favorite relatives.

individual lemon-honey meringue pies March 28, 2012 | Sweet Recipes | Comments I’ve been wanting to make a pie in these 4 ounce mason jars I have laying around.
