Ingredients

For Pie Dough:

  • 1 1/4 cup (158 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 9 tablespoons (127 grams) unsalted butter cold and cubed
  • 1/4 cup ice water

For Blueberry Filling:

  • 5 tablespoons blueberry jam

For Blueberry Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup (106 grams) powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon blueberry jam

Instructions

For Pie Dough:

  • In a medium bowl combine the flour and salt.
  • Add the cold butter. Using clean hands work it into the flour until the texture is like breadcrumbs. There can be a few large chunks left.
  • Slowly drizzle the cold water in a little at a time, working it into the dough. When the dough begins to clump together stop adding water.
  • Turn the dough out onto a clean and floured surface and bring the dough together until the dry ingredients are fully incorporated.
  • Form the dough into a disc shape and cover. Chill for at least 2 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees (F). Flour a clean surface to roll your dough out on. 
  • Roll the dough out to about 1/8 of an inch thick. Cut the dough into rectangles about 3 inches wide and 4 inches long. You should be able to cut at least 10 squares out of the dough.
  • You want the dough to stay cold, so place the rectangles on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and place them in the fridge for 10-15 minutes before adding the filling.

Assemble Blueberry Pop Tarts:

  • Spoon about 1 tablespoon of blueberry jam into the center of one of the pieces of dough and spread it out, leaving the edges of the rectangle empty.
  • Using your finger brush a small amount of water around the edges of the rectangle, this will help the other piece of dough seal together.
  • Using a clean fork dipped in flour, press the edges of the dough together. Be sure they are actually sealed together or the filling will leak out. Poke three holes in the center of the dough.
  • Place the pop-tarts back in the fridge for ten minutes before baking.
  • In a small bowl beat one egg to create an egg wash. Brush the egg wash over each pop-tart. This will ensure browning.
  • Bake the pop-tarts for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool while you prepare the blueberry glaze for the pop-tarts.

For Blueberry Glaze:

  • Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. 
  • Spoon the glaze over the top of the cooled Blueberry Pop Tarts.
