Part fast-food-chain apple pie and part Kellogg’s Pop-Tart, this recipe brings together the best of both worlds. With fresh apples glazed in a cinnamon-infused sauce and wrapped in a flaky cinnamon pastry, this toaster tart is like a hand-held apple pie.
Game plan: You can roll the dough scraps into 1 or 2 more tarts, but you’ll then need extra filling and glaze.
You can make the dough a day in advance; just be sure to let it soften at room temperature for about 10 minutes before rolling out.
Though best when eaten fresh, the cooled pop tarts can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days at room temperature. Reheat them, if desired, in a 300°F oven on a baking sheet until hot, about 10 minutes. Freezing is not recommended.
