I admit it- I love pop tarts. I love all the fake flavours. I love the fact that they will last forever (sort of like twinkies). I love that that don’t really seem like real food. As a result I don’t keep them in the house. I would eat them late at night when I should be should be sleeping and/or possibly cleaning.
I will though make some homemade ones today and not even pretend they are a breakfast item. Today, they are dessert while watching “Anthony and Cleopatra”. We’ve seen Company of Fools a number of times the past few years and love them more each time we go. I even had them to visit my school this year and if four people can entertain 400 grade eights in May-they’ve got to be good. I know, I said we were going to do this yesterday but the husband totally surprised me with a night away in Westport. We NEVER do this sort of thing.
But back to the pop tarts…they only take a couple of minutes and boy, are they worth it.
Puff pastry rolled
and cut into eight pieces (approx. 5×6 inches).
Top with a healthy slather of nutella and few raspberries.
Brush with a beaten egg (egg wash) and seal with a fork. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
I still might eat these alone late at night-if there are any left.
