Very Berry Toaster Tarts
I just LOVE these sweet little pastries, they go perfectly with morning tea or a side of nice cream. So many different variations can be created, like dates and brown sugar or apples and cinnamon. Kids love them too, just recreate their favorite Pop Tart flavor. What will be your signature filling?
Prep Time: 0 Completion Time: 0 Serving Size: 9
2 cups mixed berries
2 cups sugar
1 cup water
4 cups all purpose flour
1 T sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup refined coconut oil
1/2 cup Soymilk
1/4 cup aquafaba (liquid from a can of Garbanzo beans)
In a 2 quart pot combine the berries, sugar and water. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium. Using a masher, mash the berries, temporarily remove from heat if necessary. Let simmer and allow to cook down until thick like molasses, about 45 minutes, then set aside to cool.
Now prepare the dough by combining the flour, sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl. Cut in the oil until crumbly then cut in the aquafaba and Soymilk. once a dough like consistency is formed, kneed the dough by hand until soft and well blended. Divide into two balls, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Dough will be very flakey and will need persuading to hold together.
At this time cover and place the very berry jam into the refrigerator along with the dough.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Remove dough from refrigerator and let rest on the counter for 10 minutes. Roll out the first ball into a rectangle and cut into 9 rectangles using a pizza cutter, place on baking stone and set aside. Repeat process with the second ball of dough and set aside on parchment paper.
Spread the very berry jam on each of the 9 rectangles on the baking stone and cover with the remaining 9 rectangles.
Lightly brush with leftover aquafaba and bake for 35 minutes, serve hot.
Store leftover Toaster Tarts in the refrigerator and pop in the toaster to warm them up.
Plan to use the garbanzo beans in a different recipe. For example see Main/ Salad for our Garbanzo Bean Salad or Main/ Pasta for our Garbanzo Beans with Red Pepper Pasta. Like Hummus? We have that too, look in Appetizer/ Beans.
Use short, quick back and forth strokes when rolling out the dough.
Spread peanut butter on top (after baking) for a fun twist on a PB&J
