Ingredients

Dough

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup vegan butter
  • ½ cup ice water
  • 1 tsp salt

Filling

Icing

Instructions

Dough

  • In a bowl combine the salt and flour together. Slowly incorporate the butter (small pieces at a time). Using a pastry cutter combine together (the mixture should look crumbly)
  • Next slowly add the ice water to the crumbly mixture until it forms a ball.
  • Place the dough ball in saran wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  • While the dough is chilling it's a good time to prepare the filling and preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • After 30 minutes, divide the dough into 4 quarters and work with one quarter at a time
  • Roll the dough out to approximately ⅛ inch
  • Use a knife or pastry cutter wheel and cut out 4 rectangles 3x5 inches (you can use an index card for reference). From each quarter dough you should make 4 rectangles, enough for two pop tarts.
  • Lay flat your cutout pastry rectangles and spoon the filling onto two of them. Only in the middle of your pastry shape, leaving the sides empty.
  • Place the remaining two cutouts on top. Use a fork to crimp the edges together to keep the filling inside when baking.
  • Bake at 350°F for approximately 20 minutes or until slightly brown underneath. Let fully cool before adding the icing.

Filling

  • Add the strawberries, açai powder, and sugar together in a pot, mash, and begin to cook on the stove. You will notice it will become quite runny.
  • Add the cornstarch to thicken it up (adding a tsp at a time and whisk thoroughly). Wait until it comes to a boil and check the thickness before adding more cornstarch (remember to whisk every time more cornstarch is added).
  • Let cool completely before adding into each pop tart

Icing

  • Mix together the açai powder, powdered sugar, and non-dairy milk until smooth. If the mixture is too thick add more milk, 1 tsp at a time.

Notes

  • Make sure the butter is chilled/has been in the fridge and not sitting out
  • The water is very cold. I put mine in the freezer prior to baking. 
  • Flour can also be put in fridge for 20 minutes (but not mandatory)
  • Feel free to substitute the organic sugar for a sugar-free alternative or date sugar or coconut sugar
