Pop Tarts

Ingredients

  • 2 packets of ready made shortcrust pastry
  • 1 egg beaten
  • ½ a jar of Chivers Strawberry Jam
  • 200g icing sugar
  • 3 – 4 tbsp water
  • Sprinkles of choice

Preparation

  1. Remove pastry from the fridge or freezer according to packet instructions.
  2. Preheat your oven to 180C (350F).
  3. Slice each sheet of pastry into 8 pieces.
  4. Place 8 of them on a baking paper lined tray; if you don’t have one large enough to leave a little space between them then use two trays.
  5. Brush the top of each sheet with beaten egg using a pastry brush.
  6. Place about 1 heaped tbsp of jam into the centre of each piece of pastry.
  7. Place the remaining 8 pieces of pastry on top of each jam topped piece. Press down the sides with your fingers gently and the proceed to press down with a fork to seal the edges completely on each one.
  8. Brush the top of each pop tart with the beaten egg. Prick 3 to 4 times into the centre with a fork and then bake for 22 – 25 minutes; until lightly golden and firm.
  9. Allow to cool for 5 minutes on a tray and then cool fully on a wire rack.
  10. Mix together icing sugar and water. Add enough to create a thick smooth consistency. Once the pop tarts are cool, top with icing and sprinkles.
