Hi Bold Bakers!

This week I made puff pastry as my Bold Baking Basics video. Then I did something that I have never done before. I turned to my Instagram and Facebook to ask you what should I make with it.

The requests came flooding in and within minutes we had decided on Savory Pop-Tarts. I didn’t stop there because I also needed to figure out the flavors! There are so many possibilities and great suggestions. I went with what I considered Big & Bold flavors and something that everyone would enjoy. Considering that I tasted them, I can confirm that they were very enjoyable. 

Once you have your Puff Pastry to hand for this recipe you are halfway there with these Savory Pop-Tarts. Now, you can stick to my delicious recipes or come up with your own Big & Bold variations. Whatever you decide, just know you can keep on going until the pastry runs out. Be sure to share your favorite flavors here on my website or my social media.

What I like to do with these Savory Pop-Tarts is make up a bunch and freeze them raw. Then, just imagine coming home from school or work and eating a freshly baked Pop-Tart.  They are for kids young and old.

1. Ham & Cheese

Ham & Cheese is a classic, like a toasted sandwich, only better because it’s wrapped in pastry. Find my Ham & Cheese Pop-Tart here.

2. Spinach & Ricotta

I love this combination because it just feels very savory. Creamy cheese and spinach works in pasta so why wouldn’t it work in pastry? Find my Spinach & Ricotta Pop-Tart here.

Hi Gemma,
Have tried a lot of your recipes. End result has been pretty good. 🙂
Because of you my family has been enjoying delicious treats. You make baking seem easier than it actually is.
In this case of pop tarts I wasn’t successful. They tasted fine , but didn’t turn out flaky as shown in your video. 🙁
It was disappointing.
Hope to try it again and become better at it.
Fingers crossed.

Thank you for teaching how to bake easily at home. All the best. You’re doing a great job!

Hi Gemma, I watched you pop tart video and I wondered if you thought it would make a good Monte Cristo Pop tart. I’ve moved away from So, Cal and can’t go to Disneyland for my Monte Cristo fix and I’m addicted but I think a pop tart with the cheese, ham and turkey, with some Raspberry jam would be heaven. Am I nuts?

Hi Gemma,

Do you think your potato and mint pesto pizza can be converted into a poptart?

Hi Gemma. Can the puff pastry be used to make pasties? If so, does it require an egg wash?

Hi Gemma,

I tried to make the easy puff pastry, it turned out really flaky and delicious. Thanks for the great recipe! If I freeze pop tarts raw, do I need to thaw them prior to baking?

Thanks.

Hey Gemma! Absolutely love all the videos you put up. I started watching your videos to learn how to decorate a cake and as it turns out, I found it very easy. And the Pop tarts recipe is awesome! My puff pastry too turned out to be flaky. I did a little bit of improv and kept folding it repeatedly for the layers. My husband loved the spinach and ricotta Pop tart and kept asking for more of those… Thanks a lot!
Regards

Hi gemma, love love your recipes, I have tried many and they’ve all been a success. Was planning to make pizza pop tarts this weekend for my friends, just wanted to ask you if I can assemble them ahead of time and freeze them? Then will I have to defrost it or just keep it straight into the oven? Would love to hear your response, thanks
