Gluten free “pop-tarts”

… Or as my husband calls them “pie in your hand”.

This I did just to see if it would taste good… and it did!!!

Start with my pie crust recipe:

3/4 cup rice flour

1/2 cup corn starch

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp xanthan gum

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup cold butter/lard/margarine

1/2 lb cooked mashed (well) potatoes

whisk dry ingredients together. Cut lard in, mix till crumbly. Add mashed potato and knead slightly. Shape into a ball and cover, place in fridge to chill for 30 minutes. Take out and knead for 2 minutes and then chill for one hour.

Roll out the dough by putting it between 2 piece of wax paper (you may choose to dust it slightly with rice flour as well).

cut your dough into even sides. then cut into even rectangles (my kids helped me so mine are not even).

place them on a baking sheet with wax paper. you will need jam for the filling |( I used my home made sugar free jam)

place a small amount of jam on each rectangle. then place another rectangle on to, Press down the sides.

take a fork to the edges to look fancy. then score the tops.

bake on 350 for around 30 min or until the tarts are browned.

If you chose to you can a make a sugar cookie icing:

  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 teaspoons milk (i used a soy creamers)
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • assorted food coloring

In a small bowl, stir together confectioners’ sugar and milk until smooth. Beat in honey and vanilla until icing is smooth and glossy. If icing is too thick, add more honey. Add desired coloured food colouring.

let cool completely and enjoy your Gluten free Pop tarts… or should I say pie in your hand 🙂
