Zoomie from "Zoomiie Station', is a very loyal fan of Mad Meat Genius. When Zoomie is not being the 'Wordsmith Extrodainaire', she is a superb canner of fruit jam and jellies. I was a recipient of some strawberry and peach jam. These were fruity sweet treats. These delightful jams would be used for the filling of my take on the 'Pop-Tart'.These simple butter pastries will be called 'Zoomie-Tarts' in honor of the creator of its sweet jam filling. Let's get baking!

  1. 2 cups flour
  2. 2 sticks of butter
  3. 2 tablespoons sugar
  4. 1 egg
  5. 1 ounce of milk
  6. 1 tsp salt
Cut butter into flour. Add rest of ingredients and form into ball. Cover and let rest in refrigerator for at least 20 minutes. Roll dough onto floured surface. Cut dough into 3 by 5 squares. Fill dough with jam or filling of desire. Place another sheet on top. Crimp sides with a fork and punch a couple of holes on top surface. Brush with a little egg wash and bake at 350 degrees for 18 minutes or golden brown. When cool drizzle with a little frosting.(powdered sugar and milk)

Needles to say these were very buttery sweet treats. The crust was flaky and rich. The center was a sweet taste of summer fruit deliciousness. These were not the Pop-Tarts I remembered. They are so much better knowing the love and effort involved in their creation. Thanks Zoomie!

Which did you like best, the strawberry or the peach?

They were both scrumptious.

Frabjous! Really, really fun. Grown-up, good poptarts. But too much butter for me.
Happiness to you both.

Yes, it is a lot of butter.
