Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine flour and salt in bowl. Add shortening or butter and blend with fork, pastry cutter or your fingers until mixture is fairly coarse.
  2. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, gently mixing dough after each addition until dough forms a ball. (Dough can also be prepared in food processor. Use the pulse button just until it starts to pull away from the sides. Be very careful not to overwork the dough.).
  3. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and roll into a square/rectangle. Cut out long strips about 2 inches wide, and 3 inches long.
  4. Repeat till you run out of dough.
  5. For the glaze: Place powdered sugar in bowl. Pour milk slowly until it has a consistency of really thick syrup.
  6. Assemble: Take one pie crust rectangle, fill with a tsp of jam. Cover with another piece of pie crust. Crimp all four edges. Repeat until you run out of pie crust. Bake at 450°F for about 7-8 minutes or until slightly brown. Set aside to cool. Once cooled, pour glaze on to Poptart and decorate w/ sparkling sugar.
