Vegan Homemade Pop-Tarts®

A vegan take on a breakfast favorite! Cover tarts with any icing you like, or powdered sugar. Tip: they're just as good toasted the day after as they are fresh out of the oven.

  1. Step 1

    Scoop tablespoons of shortening onto a plate and chill in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, combine flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl and chill for 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Step 3

    Crumble shortening into the flour mixture with your fingers until no large clumps remain. Add 1/2 cup ice water to the mixture, a little at a time, until dough reaches a shaggy consistency. Knead on the countertop a couple of times to combine. The dough should appear a little too dry.
  4. Step 4

    Place dough back into the bowl or a large container and cover with a lid. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  5. Step 5

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  6. Step 6

    Roll dough into a large rectangle, about 1/8-inch thick. Cut into twelve 4x6-inch rectangles.
  7. Step 7

    Place about 1 1/2 tablespoon of strawberry jam in the center of 6 of the rectangles. Brush the edges with water and top with the other dough halves. Seal the edges of each tart with a fork. Trim the edges for neater tarts, if desired.
  8. Step 8

    Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are lightly browned, 15 to 25 minutes. Let cool, 20 to 30 minutes.
  9. Step 9

    Combine powdered sugar, almond milk, and food coloring in a bowl for icing. Drizzle icing over the cooled tarts.
