I finally had a chance today to open up my site and see if anyone liked my easy-peasy pop tarts. Imagine the look on my face when I saw that not one person had even clicked on today’s post. It’s been “Live” for 12 hours!! Um…so I thought… The first words that came out of my mouth were, “Wow…nobody likes Nutella Pop Tarts?!?”.
After a few moments of confusion, I noticed that today’s recipe wasn’t even posted! I thought I had this blog post scheduled to go live at 5:00 this morning. I could have sworn that I hit that “schedule” button a couple of days ago.
But, in my defense, you are “looking” at a Mom that has not slept much in over a week. That could be the reason why I think I did something, but really, I didn’t.
Ana, our 3 year-old, has strep throat, and our almost 8-month old has the flu. Boooooo!
I am thinking about flu shots, now. I have always been against them, but I’m not sure anymore. I hate seeing my babies like this. Argh. Are you for or against flu shots?
Oh yeah, the Pop Tarts!
Do you have some pie crust sitting around? Store-bought is fine, too. How about a jar of Nutella? Or a jar of jam? You do?!? Well, then, go make these! They will take you all of, oh I don’t know, 20 minutes! 30 tops!
Nutella Pop Tarts
- 2 refrigerated pie crusts (You can use store-bought or homemade - my recipe makes two (2) pie crusts)
- 1 cup Nutella
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 teaspoon water
- Turbinado Sugar
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Lightly dust a work surface with flour and roll out 1 pie-dough portion to about 1/8-inch thickness. Repeat with the second pie-dough.
- Cut out 6 to 8 rectangles (around 2-inches wide by 3-inches tall) from each pie crust.*You can reroll the dough-scraps into 1 or 2 more tarts.
- Transfer the rectangles to a baking sheet lined with silpat or parchment paper; leave 2 inches of space in between.
- Spread a heaping tablespoon of Nutella on half of the rectangles.
- Using a fork, lightly prick a couple of holes on the rest of the rectangles.
- Place the pricked rectangles on top of the Nutella.
- Crimp the edges of the tarts with a fork.
- Whisk the egg yolk and water in a small bowl; brush each pop tart with the egg wash.
- Sprinkle turbinado sugar on top of each pop tart.
- Bake for 13 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Let cool for a few minutes and serve.
