Another veganized version of an old favorite!
Apple Cinnamon Pop Tarts
This recipe is so easy to make and way better than the store bought variety!
If you are not a big fan of apples, you can use any fruit filling that you like!
I did make a homemade apple pie filling as you will see below and in the video tutorial, but any store bought pie & pastry filling will work great!
- For the Dough:

- For the Dough:
- In the work bowl of a food processor combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
- Dice the cold vegan butter into small ½" pieces and add to the flour mixture
- Pulse it several times to create a course mealy consistency
- Pour the cold milk through the feed tube as you are pulsing the dough to a sticky mass
- Turn the dough out onto a piece of plastic wrap and wrap well then chill for at least 2 hours.
- For the Apple Filling
- Prepare the recipe as listed on that blog post with video tutorial
- To prepare the pop tart dough:
- re- roll the dough with extra flour to get it to a roll-able, pliable consistency
- Roll the dough to less than ¼" thick
- Cut out rectangles to the desired size you want your pop tarts to be (I did 4" X4¾" rectangles for a total of 20 pieces that when sandwiched with the filling made 10 total pop tarts)
- You can re-roll the dough several times to utilize all the pieces.
- Fill each rectangle of dough fill with 2 tablespoons of apple filling.
- Cover with another rectangle of dough and with a fork crimp the edges to seal.
- On a parchment lined sheet pan spaced 1" apart, brush each pop tart with aquafaba and bake in a preheated 375°f oven for 18-22 minutes or until golden browned
- Cool slightly then glaze with sugar glaze (1 cup confectioners sugar + 1 tablespoons water or milk alternative)
