Pop tarts are great. They are a quick and easy solution to breakfast, or for a snack. But the one problem with them is that they lack that substance in the filling. Pies are great because they have that substance, whether it be fruit or something of the nature, in their filling. But the problem with pies is that they are not portable. You can't just take a pie with you on the go, can you? So I decided to make pie tarts, pop tarts with pie filling. May I present to you, Apple Pi Tarts.

Step 1: Materials

If you have ever baked a pie before, or baked something, you know you really don't need much. For this project I used: two medium-large bowls, a small bowl, measuring cups, maesuring table and tea spoons, a fork, a butter knife, a cutting knife, a spoon, cookie sheet, wax paper, rolling pin, and that's it!

Step 2: Making The Dough

The first step is to make the dough for the pie tarts. Start by combining two and one fourth cups of flour and three fourths of a teaspoon of salt. Then add two thirds of a cup of shortening. An easy way to combine the shortening with the flour-salt mixture is to take the butter knife and cut away at the shortening in the bowl. Keep the bowl at an angle, and continue to cut the shortening into pea sized pieces. Next, add about one or two tablespoons of cold water at a time to the mixture. Between each tablespoon, stir the mixture until you get a dough that stays together when you pack it, but isn't extremely goey.

Nothing wrong with Ible but the visual "end result" is un-appetising (doesn't look cooked), so It will stop people looking further. An egg wash (whipped egg and a drop of milk) would help the pastry brown and there is no reason you couldn't glaze as before.

Thanks. I thought the problem with the original picture is that no one new what the instructable was based off of the picture.
You were right. The current picture is much better, as an introduction.
