|Nutella pop tarts|
I decided to make Nutella Pop Tarts in honor of this important day. I dearly love Pop Tarts. I always feel guilty eating them and I eat them at a remarkable pace. These I feel less guilty about so they were gone in seconds. You can use your favorite pie crust for the pop tarts (I have one of mine below) or store bought crust. The dough I used was really easy to make and work with.
Nutella Pop Tarts
1 Large Egg, Beaten
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured board.
|Ready to roll out the dough|
If you have mad rolling skills (I do not), roll the dough into a rectangle. I get close to a rectangle and cut the dough into a rectangle. I love the edge a ravioli cutter gives the dough so I use that to cut the dough. Cut the dough into equal sized rectangles.

|Ready for the oven|
1 1/8 Cups (140 g) of Unbleached Flour
1/2 Tsp of Salt
1 Tsp of Sugar
1/2 Cup (113 g) of Butter, Cut into Tbsp Pieces (8 Pieces)
3-4 Tbsp of Ice Cold Water
Place the flour, salt, sugar, and butter into a food processor.
Pulse until the mixture looks like cornmeal (this does not take long).
Transfer to a bowl and add 3 tablespoons of water. Using a wooden spoon mix until a soft ball forms- you may need to add more water and you may need to use your hands.
Transfer the ball to a piece of plastic wrap, flatten into a disc, wrap tightly, and place in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
The bottom line: will I make this again? Do you even have to ask? I love these. They are so much better than store bought. The better question is did I share any of them.
