Gluten Free Strawberry Pop Tarts
A delicious gluten free vegan pastry that is easy to make using Eat or Drink's gluten free vegan pie crust recipe. Especially if you keep an extra pie crust in your freezer this is the perfect dessert to throw together for guests. Similar to a classic Strawberry Pop Tart but for the adult taste palate.
Servings: 5 Pastries
Preheat your oven to 425ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Roll out your refrigerated pie crust dough into a rectangular shape about a 1/4 inch thick. For best results roll your dough out between two pieces of plastic wrap. After rolling out the dough remove the top layer of plastic wrap but leave the dough sitting on the other piece.
Use a butter knife to draw lines into the dough that will define 10 rectangles (see pictures in the blog slide show for reference). Be sure you do not cut all the way through except for very small 1/4 inch slits at the very top of your pie crust on one side. These slits will help you know where to cut after folding the pie crust dough in half.
Spoon about 1 tablespoon strawberry jelly onto 5 of the rectangles on one side of the dough. Then with your hand under the plastic wrap fold the pie crust dough in half along the center line you created.
Using your butter knife slice the dough into 5 pop tarts along the lines you created earlier. Place these pastries onto your lined baking sheet. Use a fork to press the edges together.
Brush a light layer of melted dairy free butter onto each pastry. Place your baking sheet into the center of your preheated oven and bake for about 20 - 25 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Let cool completely once you remove them from the oven.
Mix together your powdered sugar and dairy free milk to create your glaze. Use a spoon to spread onto each pastry after they have cooled completely.
Please see the slide show in the blog post to better understand the directions.
