Pop Tarts

After going through a marmalade and jam-making frenzy, I'm now left with a burning question, what pastries to make that I could use the jams with? Thanks to the Daring Bakers, I already had the marmalade tarts, but I still wanted to find more...while browsing the net, I came across this recipe from one of my favorite blogs and this one which is a new revelation, so I decided to try pop tarts.
For the pop-tarts I used my favorite Pineapple-Ginger Jam and I chose to make it more simple by not glazing it afterwards.
They kept surprisingly well...I think this is after 5 days...
And I sliced them, you can see my home made Pineapple-Ginger Jam inside...and so after 5 minutes...

This was all that was left...*burp*

Pineapple ginger jam? Yum! My question is, how on earth did they ever last 5 days?? I prefer them without the glaze too.

So much more appetizing than those cardboard-like store pop tarts. The pineapple-ginger filling sounds amazing.

How cool! Homemade pop tarts, great idea. I couldn't think of a better way o use up excess jam.

Simply delicious, are you going to make them for your shop too? Must be a hit :-)

That is the flakiest Pop Tart I've ever seen! Love that you filled them with that amazing pineapple ginger jam you used in your crostata. I guess you could call these 'hand held' crostatas :)
