Homemade Pop-Tarts

Homemade Pop-Tarts
When I was a kid, I loved Pop-Tarts. My mom rarely bought them for us because of how unhealthy they are, but when I saw those babies in the pantry, I was pretty excited! My favorite was always strawberry, which is why I decided to make that version of these myself. I’m no health nut, but that might be because I don’t buy a lot of pre-packaged foods. The only things of that nature that I stock my pantry with on a regular basis are low-fat popcorn, rice cakes, pretzels, the occasional tortilla chips, and every once in a while, I’ll buy ice cream. I definitely get my calories in other ways, but it’s always through food that I’ve made myself. I wanted to make something kind of special for dessert a few weeks ago, and I remembered that I had seen other food bloggers making their own homemade Pop-Tarts. Your ingredients. Roll the dough out on a floured surface and cut into strips with a pizza cutter, about 3 inches wide and 5 or 6 inches long. Serve and enjoy! Homemade Pop-Tarts Cook time:
