I wanted to make breakfast treat for my kid. He loves peanut butter with jelly. And he always ask for this every time we got loaves. Then, I thought of pop tarts. I could stuff the tarts with peanut butter jelly and easy to bring when we are going out just like a cookie.
I found this recipe from King Arthur flour. Their pastry recipe is very rich and I’m sure it is delicious but I found some other recipes they used store bought pie crust. And since I have vegetable shortening, I decided to follow the pie crust recipe from Crisco. While I don’t know if shortening is healthier than butter but to me this pie crust got less fat and no need for an egg.
Ok let’s start baking.
They are flaky and not way too sweet. My kid finished his peanut butter one.
