“Pop-tarts are a pastry that I had growing up in North America. They come in a bunch of flavors! These black sesame pop-tarts are best served slightly warm and have a creamy nutty taste 🙌#stayhomekeepcooking”

Ingredients

Pieces:-6+
135 g flour
6 g sugar
1 pinch salt
127 g butter
7 g water
70 g black sesame seeds
4 tbsp honey
50 g confectioner’s sugar
½ tsp milk

Utensils

  • food processor
  • rolling pin
  • knife
  • baking sheet
  • parchment paper
  • Step 1/5

    • 70 g black sesame seeds
    • 4 tbsp honey
    • food processor

    Toast black sesame in a pan over medium heat until fragrant. Shake the pan back and forth being careful not to burn them. Allow to fully cool. Then in a food processor, blend sesame and honey until you get a smooth paste. Feel free to use more or less honey, you can even substitute some honey for coconut milk for a looser creamier paste.

  • Step 2/5

    • 135 g flour
    • 6 g sugar
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 127 g butter
    • 7 g water

    Make the pastry by mixing together the dry ingredients. Then using your hands or a pastry blender, quickly incorporate the cubed butter. It should resemble fine to medium crumbs. Drizzle in cold water and distribute evenly. Knead in bowl until it comes together. Divide in half, wrap each in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for approx. 30min.

  • Step 3/5

    On a floured surface roll out the dough. Then using a knife, cut out six roughly 7cm x 10.5cm rectangles and carefully place them on a parchment-lined sheet. Spread around 2tsp of black sesame paste in the center, leaving a 1cm border. Roll out the rest of the dough to cover your Pop-tarts. Use a fork to seal the edges. Then poke 6 holes on top to allow for the steam to escape.

  • Step 5/5

    To make the glaze, mix together powdered sugar, sesame paste, and a few splashes of milk to loosen it up. The glaze should be thick and run very slowly. Glaze your pastries and sprinkle with black sesame.
