    Personally, ready-to-eat/convenience food items are of great enjoyment, for they have a different taste and bring about a different kind of joy when consuming. Add the nostalgia factor of having consumed so many of these items during childhood, and the connection with these food products lives on to this day. Chocos, corn flakes and muesli are just some of the all-time favourites breakfast consumables. Such was the utility of these products that we used to consume them for evening snacks as well!

    What made these food items important growing up is that they used to ensure that us kids consumed breakfast, which is a must for a healthy lifestyle, especially for children who are growing up and have to cope with multiple pressures like schooling, tuitions, and sport. And while us kids would most probably have revolted after a point if forced to eat home-based favourites like bread toast and scrambled eggs, there was no such problem with the above-mentioned convenience items.

    Speaking of a specific product like Pop-Tart, it has been proven to be a popular choice among the masses. For the uninitiated, Pop-Tarts are squarish, pasty and crusty biscuit-items with some pastry crust, some fruit-based fillings and some icing all rolled into one. Keeping in mind the power of, here is a recipe to prepare Pop-Tarts.

    How to Make Pop-Tarts

    1. Preheat the oven to 400-degree Fahrenheit and keep a baking sheet with parchment paper in the side. Mix a half cup jam and some corn-starch in a small bowl. Break an egg in another small bowl and whisk. On a large surface, sprinkle flour around and put both pie crusts atop. Roll these circles to a length that you feel is satisfactory (ideally at least 11 inches) across, then use a pizza cutter or knife to cut off the edges, about 1 inch from the edge. Off the resulting two leftover square pieces, cut each square into three equal stripes, to get a total of six stripes.
    2. Apply one to two spoons of jam on one end of each strip, and brush some egg on the jam (in rectangular shape), as it will act as a glue when you then fold the fry end over the end with the jam. Use the fork to crimp the edges of all sides of these strips. Place these strips into the oven and bake for around 17 minutes, until they turn golden.
    3. Remove these tarts and let them cool for a bit, after which you have to apply the icing (made by whisking the powdered sugar, 1 tbsp of jam and a couple tbsp of cream). Immediately after spooning this glaze over each tart, apply the sugar sprinkles on top. Let this mixture fry for a bit and voila, your homemade Pop-Tarts are ready to be eaten!

    Trivia

    Pop-Tarts were originally not frosted when introduced in 1964, and it was only when makers realised that frosting would help it withstand the toaster that it was released so, in 1967.
