      myo: poptarts

      pop tarts
      1/2 C. granulated sugar
      1/2 C. vegetable shortening
      2 eggs
      2 1/2 C.

      all-purpose flour
      2 tsp. baking powder
      Any flavor jam, preserves, or fruit butter
      1 egg white beaten with 1 T. milk
      Sugar for sprinkling on top
      Cream together sugar and Crisco, beating until light.

      Beat in eggs until
      creamy, then stir in flour and baking powder to make soft dough. Divide
      dough evenly into 16 parts. Roll each part into a flattened ball and set
      aside on a plate.

      Wrap plate in plastic wrap and refrigerate two hours.
      Grease cookie sheet and set aside.
      Roll 1 ball dough into a rectangle about 1/16-inch thick. Spread 1 heaping
      teaspoon of filling evenly over dough leaving a generous margin. Roll out
      another ball into similar shape and lay it neatly over the first.
      Using sharp knife, trim the tart to approximately 3 1/2″x5″ and crimp edge
      with fingertips or tines of fork.

      Place tart on cookie sheet and prick top
      with fork.
      Optional: Lightly beat egg white with milk. Brush tops of tarts and sprinkle
      with sugar, if desired.
      Bake at 350?F for 25 minutes, just until edges are browned. Prick again
      during first 10 minutes of baking to help keep them flat.

      Cool, wrap and
      store at room temperature or refrigerator. Tarts may also be iced.
