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.

:oThese look so good! How much jam didi you use Halyma? I'm afraid of the too-much-dough-not-enough-filling effect!

I used a thin layer of natural peanut butter and some chocolate chips - mmm - but a bit dryer than I liked,  so more PB next time..
I am guessing that Sariea  has it figured out!


My dad likes to snack on Pop Tarts while he's at work; I think I'll make him some of these for Father's Day. If I make a batch of 8 or so for him to keep at the office, will they stay fresh?


also, i want to add that flouring the cookie sheet instead of greasing it tends to work better


when i made them the first time  i used about 1 tablespoon of sugar free strawberry preserves, but it wasn't enough

the second time i made them with 2 tablespoons low-sugar preserves and it was a bit too sweet for me.

so you might wanna try somewhere in the middle. it's all personal preference :)

wow - what a simple concept! And much healthier than those store bought "tarts"
I am feeling the urge to try this very soon with so many different fillings....
Thanks for sharing!

And I am sure if folk need to add a sweet topping, a simple mix of powdered sugar and water to create a glaze would do just fine - and maybe rainbow sprinkles...or chocolate flakes....
