I saw this cute idea a year ago via Bakerella, and I've seen it quite a few places since then, so I decided it was time to try it out myself. I didn't use the same recipe, I took the cheaters way out, but I think the stick is the selling point, and really, it's a pop-tart....even raw I could eat these.
One roll of store bought crust made 5 of these (if I made them smaller, it would habe been cute and gone a lot further, these are about 2/3 the size of a regular poptart,, and this size worked well for me.
I cut out rectangle.
I added jam from a jar to most of my poptarts. (To a few I added nutella, and I also tried out a mound of brown sugar in the middle sprinkled with 1/4 t. cin/sugar mix, and it was my very favorite).
I wet the edges of the crust with a little water (including the area with the stick so it would stay in place).
I used a fork to seal the edges.
...made a few little pokes in the top.
I used the baking instructions for just a 'pie crust' on the box. I sprayed the top of my crust with spray butter (egg washes would work as well, or if you want them to remain pale, avoid this step all together). I cooked mine at 325 for about 15 minutes. Just a note, I'd recommend soaking the sticks in water prior to using so they don't brown like mine.
Once my guys cooled, I mixed 1 c. of powdered sugar with 1/2. t. vanilla, and 1 T. milk. Add more powdered sugar if it's too runny. Drizzles, and sprinkle.
These would be really cute for a brunch...assuming you are into that whole 'sharing' thing.
