S’mores Pop Tarts
- 2½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1¼ tsp salt
- 6 tbsp unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
- ¾ cup vegetable shortening, chilled*
- ½ cup ice water
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 2 cups mini marshmallows
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- egg wash: 1 large egg mixed with 2 teaspoons milk
- ¾ cup powdered sugar
- 1 tbsp milk, plus more as needed
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp vanilla
- Mix the flour and salt together in a large bowl. Add cold unsalted butter and shortening. Using a pastry cutter or two forks, cut the butter and shortening until the mixture resembles coarse meal
- Slowly drizzle icy cold water 1 tbsp at a time, stopping when dough starts to clump.
- Form the dough into a ball. Divide in half. Flatten each half into 1-inch thick discs using your hands. Wrap each tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 30 mins up to overnight.
- Place your dough discs (one at a time) on a floured surface and roll each one into a rectangle about 1/8 inch thick and 9×12 inches. Cut this rectangle into 3 pieces. Then cut each one into 3 again, you want to end up with 9 mini rectangles.
- Place each of the 9 rectangles onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
- The pop-tarts will not spread in the oven much, so you can place them close together.
- Repeat the process to make the “tops” of your pop tarts.
- Mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar together. Have marshmallows and choc chips on hand
- Brush all the rectangles with an egg wash (1 egg mixed with 1 tsp water).
- Place a heaping tbps of filling in the centre of each rectangle. Add a few mini marshmallows and scatter chocolate chips.
- Place the top on, egg side down to help seal.
- Seal the pockets with fingers, then press/crimp lightly with fork.
- Poke a few little holes in each pop tart to let steam escape.
- Brush tops with egg wash, sprinkle with a little cinnamon and white sugar.
- Preheat oven to 350°F, brush tops with egg wash, then bake for about 22-25 mins, depending on your oven temps.
- Make the glaze: whisk all of the glaze ingredients together in a medium bowl until you can spread it on. *thick but not too thick.
- You can store these for about 3 days on the counter, about a week in the fridge. To reheat, pop in the oven at 350 for about 5 mins. *don’t put in toaster, the pastry might break apart.
