Quantity With Ingredients :
1 ½ cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup butter, softened
3 tbsp. cold water For Filling
Jam (your choice) For Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
milk to thin
Method of Preparation : Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine flour and salt in a large bowl. Add shortening and butter and blend.
Blend until mixture is fairly coarse. Add water, 1 tbsp. at a time, gently mixing dough after each addition until dough forms a ball.
Place dough on a lightly floured surface and roll into a square/rectangle. To about 1/8 thickness.
Cut out long strips about 2 inches wide and 3 inches long. Repeat until dough runs out.
Take one pie crust rectangle and lace 1 tsp. of jam on top. Cover with another piece of pie crust and crimp all four edges.
Repeat with the rest of dough. Place Pop-tarts on a baking sheet with parchment paper, and bake for 7-8 minutes.
To make glaze, place powdered sugar in a bowl. Pour milk slowing until it has a consistancy of really thick syrup.
Once pop-tarts are done and cooled, top with glaze. Sprinkle and decorate with sugar pearls.
