Cupcakes are so 2010 and doughnuts are so 2014, so what will replace those sweet food trends in 2015? Hopefully, homemade pop tarts. Yup, you heard me right.
You know I love pie: Exhibit A. Exhibit B. Exhibit C. And a Pop Tart is basically just a flat, hand-held pie. At the forefront of this revolution, is Ted’s Bulletin, a local chain in the Washington, DC metro area. Not only are they serving up make-you-feel-like-a-kid-again pop tarts, but their comfort food will have you checking the kitchen for grandma. Couldn’t find grammy, but I did find a tasty lunch.
Ted’s wouldn’t share their secret pop tart recipe with me (and why should they?), so below is my best guess at how they make them. Now we can all make pop tarts at home!
HOW TO MAKE A HOMEMADE POP TART
- Buy one full-sized pie.
- Run over with steamroller.
