This is probably THE MOST IMPORTANT POST THE WOW REPORT HAS EVER DONE: Caitlin Lee of Public Lives, Secret Recipes has invented an unbelievable homemade mini Pop-Tart cereal – AND, YES, WE HAVE THE RECIPE. As Caitlin says: You’re breakfast game is about to be changed forever.
The 17-step process includes instructions on making the dough and glaze from scratch, with a variety of sugary filling options to imitate the vast library of Pop-Tart flavors.
for the pop-tarts
- 2 1/4 cup flour
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 cup butter
- pinch of salt
for the filling (all are optional, the following is what PLSR used)
- peanut butter
- raspberry jam
- blueberry jam
- 1 egg yolk
- 4 tbsp water
for the glaze
- 4-6 tbsp lemon juice or vanilla extract
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 drop food coloring
for the toppings (all are optional, the following is what PLSR used)
- chocolate chips
- peanut butter
- parchment paper
- large mixing bowl
- saran wrap
- large baking sheet
- small bowl
- food processor
- cutting board
- rolling pin
- measuring cup
Line large baking sheet with parchment paper.
In food processor, combine flour, sugar, butter, & salt.
Pour mixture into large mixing bowl & add in one egg yolk.
Knead with your hands until smooth.
Let sit in refrigerator for 1.5 hours.
Preheat oven to 360 F.
Mix in extra egg yolk to dough. Add water in increments of 1 tablespoon as needed to help dough stick together. Place dough on large cutting board & roll out until about 1.5 cm in height.
Cut dough into even number of tiny rectangles.
Place half of the rectangles on parchment paper & place 1 tsp of filling directly in center of dough.
In separate small bowl, combine egg yolk & water.
Brush the edges of filled dough with egg & water mixture.
Place evenly sized dough on top of filled dough & press down on sides to close.
Press the edges of the dough with a fork to secure rectangles together.
Bake for 20-30 minutes until golden brown.
Let cool & begin making glaze by combining all ingredients at once in bowl.
Combine all glaze ingredients & sprinkle or top immediately.
Add into bowl of milk or eat on their own. Enjoy!
So please, some ambitious baker make some and either send to me for testing or just tweet the results yourself. I’m DYING to know how they are.
