Homemade Poptarts

Growing up my dad would make his grandmother's homemade biscuits nearly every Sunday morning.  Our trip to the beach was no exception.  Their buttery smell lured us from our heat and swim induced comas into the living room. Dropped by a spoon, they are oddly shaped and the perfect texture.

As is custom, my mom contributed to the tasty nostalgia with her mom's biscuit syrup.  It's simple and (despite what my husband might think) divine: karo syrup and bits of butter.

In appreciation of my folks' years of dedicated breakfast service (or maybe just because I felt like it) I brought homemade brown sugar-cinnamon and strawberry poptarts.  Prepared ahead and frozen, I coated them lightly with an egg and popped them in the oven for about 30 minutes.  

You can find the recipe at Smitten Kitchen

Don't be discouraged if it's tough to make on your first go.  Once I actually followed her "warm kitchen warning" it was pretty fool proof.  These poptarts are delicious and quite capable of stirring up a few memories of their own.

  1. My boys love Mema's Butter Syrup! Who doesn't? It is divine. I am going to try the poptarts!
