    Grown Up Pop Tarts

    Must be 21 to eat these. So if you follow the blog, you may have noticed the Apple Cider Donut Holes stuffed with three different filling flavors. Well, they were delicious.  Yet three mostly filled pastry bags of delightful and flavor packed fillings still sat in my fridge this morning. Genius hit at 5:30 am while my two year old refused to sleep- pop tarts!! This pie dough tart is stuffed with Apple Pie Filling and Salted Caramel then frosted with Maple Whiskey Buttercream before being drizzled with the Salted Caramel Sauce again. Yep, you’re welcome.  peace and xo,   jenni Share on facebook Share on twitter Share on linkedin Share…

For non stick tins, there is no need to grease the pan.

Cut the butter into 1/4″ cubes. Use a pastry cutter or…
