Monday Munchies: [homemade pumpkin pop-tarts & maple icing]

Today I have the day off from work, so I decided to spend a little more time in the kitchen than normal. While perusing the cereal aisle in the grocery store the other day, I saw Kelloggs limited edition pumpkin pie pop-tarts. Having grown up eating pop-tarts for nearly every breakfast before school, I instantly craved the comforting fruity treat, and since pumpkin is my absolute favorite thing the month, I decided to recreate them my own way!

For the crust:

I just used refrigerated Pillsbury Pie Crust found in the refrigerated baking section. It’s perfect for these pop-tarts because it comes with 2. A top and a bottom.

For the filling:

3/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1/8 teaspoon all spice.

For the Maple Icing:

1/ cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp milk
2 tbsp maple syrup
 
• Roll the crust out on a flat surface. Since my pie crusts were circular, I cut them using a pizza cutter to make it into a rectangle and flattened out the leftover dough to make 2 more.
• Melt butter and brush it onto one side of the dough.
• Spoon the filling in the center of one side of each square.
• Top with empty dough square.
• Using a fork, close the ends by pushing spokes down.
• Make a few slits on the top to eliminate air bubbles.
• Bake on 375 degrees for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
