This kiddos and the hubby love Pop-Tarts so I decided it was time to make them Homemade Pop-Tarts with Nutella in the middle. The price on boxed Pop-Tarts has skyrocketed and I have been pretty good in the kitchen lately so making homemade Pop-Tarts seemed like a great idea. My Homemade Cheez-Its and Homemade Fruit Roll-Ups have been such a hit, I knew these Nutella Pop-Tarts would be too!
Homemade Pop-Tarts with Nutella
I had picked up some Nutella on a sale last week so this Homemade Pop-Tarts Recipe seemed like a great idea. I made my crust from scratch and it was quite simple. You could also use a pre made pie crust from the grocery too if you want to make these quicker and with less mess.
2 1/2 cup Flour
1 tbsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
1 cup Butter
2 tbsp Milk
9 tbsp Nutella
Cut butter into small cubes.
Combine flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl.
Work butter into the flour mixture with a pastry cutter.
Whisk together one egg and milk and add to the flour mixture.
Knead until ball forms.
Turn dough out on to floured surface and knead for 1 minute.
Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350.
Divide in half.
On floured surface, roll out dough into a 9″ × 12” rectangle.
Cut into 9 rectangles.
Repeat with other piece of dough.
Make an eggwash by beating the remaining egg and brush over entire surface of first 9 rectangles.
Place a tablespoon of Nutella on top of each egg washed rectangle and spread. Be sure to leave 1/2″ bare around edges.
Place a rectangle on top of filling and press with fingertips to seal around edges.
Use the tines of a fork to seal all around.
Poke top with fork to allow steam to vent.
Place on parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes or until lightly browned.
Cool on wire rack.
I am normally a fan of Strawberry Frosted Pop-Tarts (none of the others in my house like them so I do not get them very often, ha ha) I am thinking my next batch of Homemade Pop-Tarts will be all for momma. I love that I can just toss in any ingredients into these since I am making them myself.
Are you a fan of Pop-Tarts? If so, do you eat them without toasting? What flavor is your favorite. there are so many new kinds of Pop-Tarts on the market. I think I have finally lost track of what flavors are all available.
