Baked Toaster-like Pastries

What you need: 

3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup margarine
1/4 cup water
fruit jam or preserves, as needed

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a cookie sheet and set aside. In a bowl, combine the flours (you can use whatever flour you want).
2. Add the margarine and cut into flour with pastry cutter or fork, adding water as needed; I didn't need the full 1/4 cup. Divide dough into 4 equal sized balls, and on a floured surface, roll each out one at a time into a rectangle shape.
3. On 1/2 the rectangle, spread about 1 tablespoon (or more if you like) of jam, leaving an edge of dough visible. Fold dough over to cover the jam and use a fork to connect the edges. You might need a little water to get them to hold together, if you use a lot of flour to roll it out.
4. When all 4 are done, put them on the cookie sheet and bake for 12-18 minutes. Take them off the cookie sheet and let rest on a cooling rack.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Wonderful!  I'm not one for a pop-tart breakfast, but they are a lovely snack for something sweet.
YUM!

I though these were very bland. They have potential, but something is missing. Perhaps some sugar and a little salt to bring out the flavor would help. I wouldnt make these again as they are, I would definately change them up a bit.

it's definately a base recipe

By pastry flour, does that mean bread flour or cake flour? There's a BIG difference -- about 5 grams of protein -- so I wanna be clear before I attempt these!

hello, pastry flour is neither cake flour or bread flour. You can buy Pastry Flour on  it's own or you can make your own buy mixing equal parts cake flour and all purpose flour.
You can also just use all-purpose flour because it is suitable for pretty much everything. 8)
---
All purpose flour - 10-12% protein
Pastry Flour - 9-11% protein
Cake Flour - 7-9% protein

I forgot to mention  bread flour. it is one step above all purpose flour in protein content. But maybe you could use 1/3 bread flour and 2/3 cake flour to create pastry flour if all you have is those 2 types on hand.

Bread Flour - 11-13% protein
All purpose flour - 10-12% protein
Pastry Flour - 9-11% protein
Cake Flour - 7-9% protein

These were really good... but I had some minor issues with the dough.  It was really rough and crumbly.  I wonder what happened.  All in all they were fantastic and way better than regular toaster tarts.  Thanks for the recipie! :)

Can anyone give me ideas of what I could use in these instead of butter? There is a looooot of butter in these. Otherwise, I loved them.

Applesauce is the best replacement.
Quote from littleveg:
Yum! 
I halved the recipe so that I'd only have two poptarts and subbed a 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce in place or margarine and it worked perfectly.  I used  whole wheat flour, but they came out a little dense, so next time I'll try 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 whole wheat pastry (I just didn't have any pastry flour this time!) 

and -shea- said:
I used all applesauce except for about a teaspoon of oil. They were kind of dry and sticky that way, so they didn't turn out pretty enough to post a picture.

Hope it goes well!
