glutino pop tarts
Interestingly, it is not that difficult to make the glutino pop tarts ready to munch. So, let’s get ready by listing down the ingredients of this Glutino pop tart copycat.
- ¾ cup gluten-free oat flour
- ½ cup and a tbsp of millet flour for rolling
- ¼ cup and 2 tbsp sweet rice flour
- ¼ cup and a tbsp tapioca flour
- 1.5 tbsp sugar
- ¾ tsp xanthan gum
- ¼ tsp salt preferably kosher salt
- ¾ cup unsalted butter cold
- 4-6 tbsp ice water
- 1 egg whisked
- 1 cup store-bought strawberry jam
- 2 tbsp milk or heavy cream optional
Whisk all the flours, sugar, salt, and xanthan gum in a big bowl.
Add cold unsalted butter and break up the butter with your hand. Mix with the flour until it forms a kind of dough.
Add in ice water, 1 tbsp at a time, and knead until you feel it needs a dribble of ice water. Continue kneading the dough until it comes as one. Then, divide it into two parts.
Dust the working surface with millet flour. Then, roll into a rectangle each part of the dough you have just prepared. Make it until it becomes a ¾ inch thick. Dust the tops lightly with millet flour.
Fold dough as thirds. Do it once again until you make two third folds. Gently press the dough to become a 1-inch-thick rectangle.
Wrap each dough using plastic and let it chill for around an hour or even overnight.
Dust your work surface with millet flour. Then, roll one portion of the dough into a rectangle, sized 9x12-inch. Ensure there’re no cracks.
Cut the rectangle dough into 9 smaller rectangles—sized 3x4-inch each. Again, do the same thing to another dough.
Brush egg on one rectangle dough. On another dough, place 1 tbsp strawberry jam. Then, place the egg-brushed rectangle on top of the one with strawberry jam (egg-brushed side facing up). Place the pop tarts on a baking sheet, one inch apart.
Use the tip of chopstick and make holes on top of the pastry. This is done to vent out the steam.
Let the pop tart to chill for 15 mins while you preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Just before tossing the pop tarts onto the oven, brush the top of each pop tart with milk, heavy cream, or the remaining egg wash.
Bake your dough around 40 mins.
As a suggestion, you can top the pop tart using some types of icing. That would make your glutino pop tarts copycat tastes greater.
