VEGAN Raspberry Pop Tarts
Makes 8

CRUST
1 2/3 c  all-purpose flour
1 c  whole wheat pastry flour
2 t  organic sugar
3/4 t  sea salt
1 c + 1 T non-dairy, unsalted butter (Original Earth Balance – Vegan Buttery Spread), cold
1/2 c  ice water

FILLING (makes about 1 cup of preserve)
1 c  fresh raspberries* (or 6oz pkg), rinsed
1/2 c  organic sugar

ICING
1 c  organic powdered sugar
1 -2 T  almond milk
1/4 t  pure vanilla extract
Vegan sprinkles

DIRECTIONS

1 | In a food processor or Vitamix, pulse the flour with the sugar and salt until combined.  2 | Add the butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse meal.  3 | Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and, sprinkle the ice water on top.  4 | Stir with a fork until a crumbly dough forms.  5 | Cut the dough in half and form into 2 small discs; wrap in plastic and refrigerate until firm, at least 30 minutes.  6 | Place raspberries in a medium pot, and mash using a fork.  7 | Bring to a boil and continue to boil  for 2 minutes.  8 | Stir in sugar and bring to a boil for another 2 -4  minutes until the consistency is thicker.  9 |  Remove from heat.  10 | Using a hand mixer beat for 3 minutes in pot to make sure blended together well.  11 | Place in a small mason jar, and let cool.  12 | Preheat oven to 400º.  13 | On a lightly floured surface, roll out each disc of dough to a 12-inch rectangle, about 1/8” thick.  Don’t worry if not perfect.  14 | Using a pizza cutter, cut dough into 16 – 3 1/4” x 4 1/4” rectangles.  15 | Repeat the process until you have used all of the dough.  16 | Place 8 of the rectangles on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (for easy clean up).  17 | Spread 1 tablespoon of the cooled raspberry preserve over the center of the pop tart, leaving 1/2- inch edge on all sides.  18 | Brush the sides of each rectangle with almond milk or water to help glue the edges together; place additional rectangles over the tops.  19 | To seal the dough, press with your finger, using a fork to crimp and seal the edges.  20 | Poke a few holes in the top of each pop tart using a toothpick or other similar object.  21 | Bake in the oven for 15 -18 minutes until slightly golden brown.  22 | Remove from the baking sheet using a spatula, and place on a cooling rack for 10 -15 minutes. (Be careful when moving as preserve is hot and may leak out.)  23 | To make icing; mix together powdered sugar, almond milk, and vanilla.  24 | Spoon icing over the top of each cooled pop tart, and add sprinkles immediately.  25 | Allow icing to set before serving.

To serve: Serve warm or at room temperature with a cold glass of homemade almond milk.  Enjoy!

*You may substitute fresh raspberries for another fresh fruit.
** Substitute 1 cup of raspberry preserve with any store bought flavored preserve.
***Original rectangle pop tart is 3 1/4” x 4 1/4” or try making square pop tarts 3 1/4” x 3 1/4”. (I cut out a paper pattern to make cutting easier.)
****Use fresh and organic ingredients whenever possible.
