Strawberry Pop Tarts



For the filling;

100g strawberries

40g sugar

15g cornflour

15g cold water

For the pastry;

300g plain flour

36g sugar

160g Vegan butter

45g cold water

For the icing;

150g icing sugar

3-5 tbs boiling water

Sprinkle decorations


 

Method;

  1. Wash and dice the strawberries for the filling

  2. Add the sugar and heat on the hob until the mixture has formed a squishy strawberry syrup

  3. While the strawberry mixture is softening, mix the cornflour and water together to make a thin paste and set aside

  4. Preheat the oven to 180c

  5. Make the pastry by adding the flour, sugar and butter together in a bowl

  6. Crumble together until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs

  7. Add the water and bring the pastry together and set aside

  8. Once the strawberry mixture has formed a squishy strawberry syrup remove from the heat

  9. Stir the cornflour paste into the strawberry mixture and mix until slightly thickened and set aside

  10. Lightly flour the worktop and roll the pastry into a thin sheet

  11. Cut out 12 shapes using a cookie cutter (6 for the bases and 6 for the tops)

  12. Place a spoonful of strawberry mixture in the centre of the 6 pastry bases

  13. Use a pastry brush to dampen the edge of the pastry bases

  14. Place the pastry lids on top of each base and use a fork to crimp the edges together. This will stop the filling spilling out!

  15. Bake for 10-15 minutes until lightly golden

  16. While the pop tarts are cooking, make the icing by mixing together the icing sugar and boiling water

  17. Add the water a spoonful at a time until the icing is thick and smooth

  18. Pipe the icing on the top of each pop tart and decorate with sprinkles

  19. Eat and enjoy!



Confession time! I’d never had a pop tart before experimenting making this recipe
