Mmm, bite sized pop tarts are perfect for snacking on (or even eating like cereal!) they're really easy and fun to make, plus there are so many ways to make them your own by changing the flavour of the 'pastry', the filling and the glaze!

Step 1: You Will Need...

Ingredients

For the 'Pastry' (this is more like a cookie dough)

1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour (or all purpose flour)
rounded 1/4 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp sugar
4 tbsp unsalted butter
scant 1/4 tsp salt
2-3 tbsp milk

1 egg white
1 tsp water

Filling Suggestions
marshamallow fluff, dried fruits, different types of chocolate, frangipane, jams, cookie doughs, lemon curd, nut butters, nutella, cinnamon + sugar

For the Glaze
1/2 c powdered sugar
milk
colors/ flavors: cocoa powder, instant coffee, maple extract, cinnamon, almond extract, jam, lemon
things to sprinkle: demerara sugar, coconut, sprinkles, chopped nuts, zest, grated chocolate...

Utensils

Cookie sheet
knife (doesn't need to be very sharp) 
ruler 
food processor or medium bowl 
2 small bowls
spoon
baking paper
measuring cups and spoons
cling film
rolling pin
pastry brush or a thick, very clean paint brush
toothpick (optional)
oven!

Step 2: Make the 'pastry'

If you're using a food processor:

Blend flours, baking powder, sugar, butter and salt until completely mixed. Add milk 1 tbsp at a time until a dough forms. Wrap in cling film ad refrigerate for 30 minutes at least.

If you're using a bowl:

Place the flours, baking powder, sugar, butter and salt into the bowl. Rub the butter into dry ingredients using your finger tips or a pastry blender until all the butter is blended in, and the mixture has a crumb-like texture. Using a spoon and your hands, stir in the milk, 1 tbsp at a time until a dough forms. Wrap in cling film ad refrigerate for 30 minutes at least.


Step 3: Rolling

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Roll dough out as thinly as possible (almost paper thin!) on some parchment paper with a lightly floured rolling pin. Cut dough into 4cm x 2.5 cm rectangles.

Mmm these look tasty!
I love these! They are so adorable and look so tasty! (And easier to eat than regular pop-tarts that always crumble apart for me.)
