Homemade Poptarts

RECIPE:

Dough Ingredients:
- 3 CUPS Flour
- 1/2 TSP. Salt
- 3/4 CUP Oil
- 2 TSP. Vinegar
- 5 to 6 TBSP. Cold Water

01. In a small bowl, stir flour and salt.
02. Combine oil, vinegar and water in a separate bowl.
03. Mix dry and wet ingredients, form into bowl, and chilld for 15 minutes.

Once you've completed the dough, roll it out to half centimeter thickness, and cut
into identical rectangles. You'll need two rectangles per poptart.

I put a dollop of Smuckers Sugarfree Strawberry Jam in some, and Smuckers
Sugarfree Chocolate Topping in others! (I live in Canada and was unable to find these
anywhere - my good sport of a boyfriend brought them to me from the states.)

Spread evenly on the center, leaving a border of plain dough. Top with second dough
rectangle and seal all edges with the end of a fork. Place on a sprayed baking sheet
and bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.

Once they've cooled completely, I coat them in a Splenda glaze which is simply 1 CUP
of Splenda and one to two tablespoons of milk. I add sprinkles but you could, of course,
opt to leave those out.

These are super flaky and not overly sweet - SO good! Hope you enjoy them.

I made sugar-free Poptarts from scratch. ♥

Fascinating! What did you use for the icing, in order to keep them sugar-free? They look yummy. :)

I used 1 cup of Splenda with 2 tablespoons of milk for the glaze. (:

They look awesome! You can't buy pop tarts where I live, but now I can make my own, yay. And I even got everything at home!
Hm, filled with Nutella and banana slices sounds like a good idea.
kimberly_2002 3rd-May-2012 12:00 pm (UTC)
I was just thinking that nutella sounded delicious in these.
withfrost 3rd-May-2012 06:48 pm (UTC)
Nutella! @_@ That sounds divine.

Did you find sugar-free little stars? Or were those normal?

They look amazing!
kmazzy 3rd-May-2012 08:34 am (UTC)
haha i was going to say that! they look like some i got in Spain which are def not sugar free!
withfrost 3rd-May-2012 06:47 pm (UTC)
Thanks! The Sprinkles were not sugar-free, but they were just an extra add on. (:
suede 3rd-May-2012 03:28 pm (UTC)
Like the splenda tip!

Everything's better with rainbow sprinkles. Rainbow Brite taught me that.

I concur!
misswitch 3rd-May-2012 06:38 pm (UTC)
These look awesome! About how many pop tarts do you get per batch?
withfrost 3rd-May-2012 06:46 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I think I'd gotten between 10 and 12, that batch.

I'm Diabetic and love sweets, but I'm always very cautious because of the sugar content in many things. these look amazing! I wrote the recipe down and will try it. and also thanks for answering about the icing, was gonna ask the same thing.

Glad this was on the front page of live journal. Looks good. Hope you don't mind I'm planing on using real sugar. I know the diabetic problem and completely sympathize but I try to steer clear of fake sugar. Don't know why exactly just like my food as real as possible. That being said I'm sure my version will still have a lot less sugar because I'll only lightly ice them, and the filling will be sugar free since I make low sugar or sugar free jams.

I love pop-tarts but I can no longer get them where I live, so this is coming as a Godsend for me. :)

I was JUST wondering how to make my own poptarts. Thanks for posting this. I'll have to give it a try.

I always wanted to make (and eat) my Pop Tarts. And what TBSP means. It's my first time making this.

What a lovely recipe! I shall bake this in my free time.
akutati 9th-May-2012 01:22 pm (UTC)
I tried this out! The result was tasty, though I had a couple of troubles.

First, am I just blind, or isn't there the heat of the oven anywhere? ^_^; As I noticed this only when I had the dough all ready, I just guessed and threw them in 175C (about 314F, I think), but that must've been too low, since they took half an hour to bake. So could you edit the heat in? :)

Second, I had trouble with the amount of the liquid. After I added the amount in the recipe, the dough was still very...flour'y. Had to add about a double or even more to get it into a moldable dough.

The latter might be my own fault, though. I live in Finland, and we don't use cups, but litres, so I had to convert it all. Might've made a mistake there. :D
