Blueberry Popped Tart

MADE BY MEGPIES BAKESHOP IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK

Staff Pick

"Really fun! A much more acceptable (and tasty) option when I crave a toaster pastry." –Dani, Design


MOUTH SAYS...

Each Megpie is totally homemade, and you immediately taste the difference between these and the machine-made stuff. We swoon over their buttery, flaky crust and to-die-for fillings. 

Filled with a bright blueberry jam, with its beguiling blend of blueberries and a splash of lemon juice, this treat is like blueberry pie sized down into a tart. And it all somehow still isn't too heavy to serve as an on-the-go breakfast. Your commute just got a lot better. 

When Meghan Ritchie introduced these retro treats at Brooklyn food market Smorgasburg, they quickly became a hot ticket. They've got such a following they're even listed as one of the Village Voice's top 100 dishes. One bite, and you'll forget Pop Tarts ever even existed. 

INSTRUCTIONS: We ship these treats frozen and mostly they defrost on the way. Store at room temperature and when you're ready to enjoy, just reheat them in an oven or toaster oven at 250 degrees for five minutes. The pastries stay fresh for over a week, but those west of the Mississippi should eat these within a couple of days of receiving them for the freshest tasting pastries. If you make it more than 24 hours, you deserve some kind of prize.

Tip of the Tongue

Megpies are a staple in cafés all across the city here in New York – for obvious reason. Pair one with a cup of joe, whether it's hot or iced. Heating the Megpie gently in a toaster oven isn't a bad idea, either!
