Crust, Jam, and a Little Nostalgia
We made homemade pop tarts. These were adult pop tarts, with a homemade cranberry jam filling; a little tang to counterbalance the sweet. The recipe came from a great cookbook, Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It. It's one we use often. The pastry dough was some of the best I've ever had: flaky, flavorful, and tender. We're going to try it as a pie crust.
But really, the pop tarts were super fun, especially for those of us who weren't allowed to eat them on a regular basis as a child. They got a lot of laughs, great conversation piece.
