    Default Homemade Pop Tarts

    Homemade Pop Tarts
    4 cups Flour
    1 cup Vegetable Shortening
    2 tablespoons Sugar
    1 teaspoon Baking Powder
    1 teaspoon Salt
    1 Egg
    1 teaspoon Vinegar
    cup Cold Water
    16 tablespoons Jam -- divided

    Cut flour and shortening together with pastry blender or two butter
    knives, until completely blended (mixture will resemble crumbs). Add
    sugar, baking powder,salt, egg, vinegar and cold water. Mix with hands
    until mixture forms a ball.
    Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Divide dough into
    fourths,refrigerating the portions you are not working with yet.

    Take first 1/4 of dough and roll out onto a floured surface. Cut into
    rectangles using a sharp knife .It is helpful to make a template the
    size you wish your pop tarts to be, from cardboard or heavy plastic,
    so they will be a uniform size.
    Spread on tbsp. jam on one half of the rectangles, leaving a half inch
    or so on the edges without jam. Cover with the other half of the

    rectangles. Crimp edges with a fork. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 12 -
    15 minutes or until the pie dough is evenly browned and cooked
    through. Cool completely and place into zip baggies for
    storage until you are ready to eat them. Repeat with remaining dough
    and jam until it is all completed.

    Variation: Glaze pop tarts with a simple glaze made from powdered
    sugar, milk and vanilla extract. Be sure to let glaze dry hard before
    placing pop tarts into storage baggies.
